We stayed and ate here for 2 nights with friends that had stayed before and told us how good it was. And they were not wrong. We stayed in a lovely spotless room overlooking the bridge and river. Everything needed was in the room and a nice touch were the extra thick soft towels stored on the hot towel rail....

Eight of us for lunch and the baby and we were looked after really well . Food was great and three good course of quality for £23 a head. Very comfortable and on a sunny day you can sit and eat by the side of the river. Very Lovely. Good beer and wine choice.

Our family of five had Sunday lunch at the Lion. We'd eaten here before (although several years ago) and it had been very good. We were excited and had driven for 45 minutes to get to the pub, looking forward to another memorable occasion. Unfortunately this experience was not good. The first problem was that one of our pre-lunch drinks...

My wife and I had a splendid Sunday lunch. Roasted plum Tomato soup, smoked salmon and capers and 12 hour boiled brisket - absolutely delicious, excellent service and reasonable prices. We will be back and would like to stay there.

Went to the Lion for a sandwich and beer lunch. No problems - ham sandwich good, Ludlow Gold beer good, service good Although they have a bar and dining room, both were laid up for lunch whereas we might have felt more comfortable with a more basis décor. Excellent location by the river - the hotel has clearly had an...

Good afternoon, Thank you for calling in for lunch and for leaving your positive review. We have been open for just over six years since we took over and renovated the Lion and so far it has been successful, I am not sure how long 'time' is but I do know that we have some very satisfied customers who return...
