Went in on Sunday 6th of February sometime in afternoon after meal out with friends. The bar maid was absolutely horrendous. Behaviour was bang out of order got no customer skill whatsover. We ordered drinks and she just slam the drinks on the bar. Didnt even smile..unpleasant behaviour.

A well presented substantial dinner well presented and served at a reasonable price. The pub is nicely decorated and the staff are pleasant and friendly. I was tired and didn't want to cook and I was very satisfied with the whole experience. I shall return!

Spent two consecutive evenings Dining at the Golden Lion in the wonderful small town of Corbridge steeped in Roman History. Very welcoming Staff set the tone amongst the homely décor near the open fire. Food really is exceptional and a must if you are in this part of the world. We will return on our next venture to Northumberland.

Four of us met up for lunch in Corbridge and decided to go to The Golden Lion after one or two recommendations from local shopkeepers ( we normally go elsewhere for lunch but fancied a change) The waitress was particularly friendly and helpful, even putting extra logs on the fire and using a fire lighter to get it blazing again....

Firstly Ted is my super Jack Russell dog and whilst he didn't dine at the hostelry he was made to feel very welcome by the staff. Secondly let me say that I am not one of those people who needs everything to be 'cordon bleu' foodwise nor 'CAMRA' rated five star beerwise. I look for good,warm, friendly service, well cooked...
