The Golden Lion Ratings and Reviews
I’ve never given 5* for a review before. I had high expectations after watching Dion two years in a row at the Newport food festival and having tasters of food he prepared in front of us as an audience.
This year they gave out a voucher, so an excuse to visit!
I went for date night with my partner, a fairly local pub for us.
As we approached the bar we were greeted and seen to, drinks in hand we made our way to comfy sofas to wait. Its didnt seem like waiting, we were able to enjoy our drinks in a relaxed, warm atmosphere with the buzz of other peoples concersation in the background. Given a menu to ponder, our orders were taken whilst still in the sofa.
A few moments later we were seen to our rable, coats taken for us and met with our starter.
Plentiful bread and olives platter to start with oils and butter. Shortly after our mains arrived, blade of beef with the poshest but tastiest mash ever with a gravy to leave you wanting more. And a steak with proper chips and tasty side sauce.
The portions were generous and we we did not feel rushed, nor asked about our food whilst with a mouth full (which always seems to happen). Ambience thoughout was lovely and the decor refreshing. Final check - the toilets, modern, clean and freshen up toiletries for the women which was a lovely touch.
We left wanting to return, possibly sooner rather than later to try out the desserts and other tempting dishes.
Thank you to the staff, two men and a women that served us you’re a credit the team and kitchen staff it goes with out saying you’re in the right job!
I would recommend this place for food to anyone!
Was super as usual. This time we popped in for lunch on a sturdy to celebrate dads birthday. My little one had a kids meal and it was big enough for me, my little one loves his fish, chips and peas! Always a warm welcome, friendly staff and great food. We are all looking forward to being back soon.
We took my elderly uncle for his 73 birthday, I had asked for a round table and they happily seated use on a lovely large table. All the staff were super friendly and helpful, very good menu choices for a Sunday lunch. Food came out very quickly and a really good size. We all had the 3 course menu and were stuffed at the end! Would most definitely be coming back!!!! Thank you all.
We've been to the Golden Lion a few times now and the meals every time are 11/10 you will not be disappointed, the owners are very warm and welcoming and take great pride in their pub and their kitchen. The waiting staff are always friendly and can't do enough to help you. It would be my first choice for a meal every time.
All staff very attentive and freindly Beatrice was our main waitress, made us feel very welcome.
Portions were good and prices fair, all food arrived at the same time, not baked under hest lamps, these prople really care for you and each other - and it shows in the ambience.
Very nice touch, the cheff came out and spent time to chat with us.
Worst point @ 3 hrs 30 + traffic it is sadly situated way to far from Essex :( ,any time we are in the Wales area, no contest where we will head for to eat.
Had dinner there twice. Food was phenomenal so cancelled another reservation and came back. Had two great meals. Beatrice and Katie gave great service, as did Oscar. I didn't get the other restaurant managers name but he too was excellent. The whole place works on food quality and taste, combined with top service. Saturday was enhanced by the entertainment, great singer with a likewise sense of humour. Some may say the Golden Lion is expensive but I say you get what you pay. Looking forward to going back July 1st and maybe even July 2nd.
We chose to dine at The Golden Lion as a result of the excellent marketing material we had received through our door. The menu looked fantastic and the general appearance of the business just as good. It's safe to say we were not disappointed by our experience. On arrival at The Golden Lion we were politely greeted by the waitress and shown to our table. We were offered drinks and our menus and selected a starter of Baked Camembert, which was superb. We were left to enjoy our starter but also asked if we were enjoying our meal. After being suitably impressed we ordered our main meals. We opted for the Steak and risotto both of which were cooked to perfection and incredibly tasty. At no point throughout our meal were we hassled or hurried and were extremely impressed with the courtesy and professionalism from all staff but in particular Chelsea who had earlier in the night unfortunately had some difficult customers whose complaints were completely ridiculous and unnecessary. Not only did we feel she dealt with that scenario very well but we were grateful that she did not let it affect our experience. We did not opt to select from the desert, purely because the meals were hearty and filling and we did not have any room! You should be very proud of your establishment and even more so of your staff and we have already booked to return for a special occasion later this year with more of the family! I would recommend The Golden Lion to anyone in the Magor and Undy community and it is a pleasure to have somewhere of such standard close by.
My partner and I loved this pub. One of the best I've been to. We believe it's the small details that set great restaurants apart from the rest and this pub certainly does just that.
Food was amazing as was the service.
It wasn't dark and dingy, but light and modern with it's our theme.
There is free parking very close by which is a huge bonus.
Fully recommend that you visit!
