My go-to pub when passing through Lancaster whether with friends or solo. Friendly staff and customers, very reasonably priced drinks, wing back chairs and a roaring fire in winter, beer garden in the summer. Often hosts live music and other events, open late.

This is my first visit after the refurbishment and I'm glad that it's charm and cosiness has been retained. The beer is still good and the bar staff are very friendly.

Called in to catch a band really great atmosphere but poor selection of real ales available, get the ales right and this pace would be top notch!!

The Golden Lion continues to serve a range of nice real ales and has one of the best selections of Scotch Whisky in town. It also has some charm and sense of history to it as one of Lancaster's oldest institutions.

I went here with my partner and his friend on Sunday and it was a nice place to chill out in. For two beers and a glass of wine it was just over £10 so the prices are reasonable too. Worth a visit

The pub is a venue for many live bands and has a comfortable relaxed and friendly atmosphere. The band we watched on Saturday was brilliant.
