Absolutely superb hospitality and so, so dog friendly too. I’d say the perfect pub atmosphere. Comfortable seating for relaxing drinks (an excellent stock of ales) and fantastic food. Honestly couldn’t wish for anything more. Thoroughly recommend The Lion for fine dining with that relaxing environment. Thanks to all the team, well done.
The food is tasty and good portions too. Lovely friendly staff and great service.
Will not be returning
Lovely first night of a get together weekend. Great meal and friendly staff helping us out with late guests. Loved the burger and saved enough room for the fabulous sticky ginger/butterscotch pudding. Nice choice of wines too.
5 mins down the road from our Air BnB and dog friendly!! Really struggled to find many around here. The atmosphere, food, service was AMAZING!!
The owner came over to greet our dog and spent a good 10 minutes talking to us which was really nice.
Recommend this place with or without a dog!
From the decor to the food to the service - everything about this place was just gorgeous! Hope to come back.
The ginger pudding is absolutely heavenly
Our second visit
Obviously difficult for everyone in the country trying to run a restaurant at the moment - mad busy demand with staffing levels remaining a struggle throughout pingdemics plus deliveries haphazard so The Lion are doing brilliantly - thank you - though they had to cancel one of our bookings this trip, we understand
Fabulous meal again. A really varied and original menu. The mix of flavours is amazing. We tried the cauliflower burger, it has so much flavour, not at all what was expected. Looking forward to visiting again.
Lovely food, great service. Will definitely be back.
The Lion has managed to upgrade to a chic contemporary eating place without losing the pleasant traditional feel of the old inn. Staff are smiley and welcoming, service was pleasant and efficient and the food was tasty and well presented with decent Sauvignon to accompany. What more can you ask (except maybe a few more vegetables)?
The food was ok. Not sure if it was because it was the end of service when we ate but definitely style over substance.
The salmon was over cooked and the deconstructed cheese cake looked very pretty but the taste didn’t match the styling. It’s a lovely looking pub and the serving staff were great.
Lovely little pub, very friendly and helpful staff. Dig friendly and very accommodating. Lovely food too.
The food was fantastic, beautifully cooked and tasted great. However despite the restaurant promoting itself as a family place to eat, it felt more like a place for adults or older children. The menu for children was scant. My daughters just wanted a nice meal aimed at them and instead has a composite of an adult meal and a child’s meal. They wanted fish and chips and were presented with sea bass in foil. The fish was great but full of bones which they found overwhelming and difficult to deal with which put them of the meal and the experience. May I suggest that you offer both a sophisticated menu as well as a more basic good quality menu that isn’t a struggle for young children to deal with.
The venue, the service and the food were all outstanding. We will definitely visit again when we’re back in the area - if only for the incredible cheesecake dessert!
Amazing place! And will definitely be back. Really great find
