An impromptu lunch for 8. We had friends staying for the weekend and at the last minute we decided that a Sunday lunch was in order. Called several of the usual haunts but they were fully booked.

So pleased to hear you enjoyed your Sunday Lunch, you are right to recommend to reserve your table in advance as our Carvery is very popular. We offer roast breast of Turkey, roast sirloin of Beef and Roast Loin of Pork, traditional accompaniments, seasonal vegetables & potatoes.

We stayed at the Golden Lion Hotel for one night prior to an event nearby the following day, and we had pre-booked an evening meal. Our room was very comfortable with good quality furniture and fittings, flat screen TV, tea making facilities with a teapot, with cups and saucers.

We were in the area for a wedding and looking for somewhere reasonably priced. The Golden Lion exceeded our expectations. We received a very warm welcome, the room was a good size, with all facilities we needed. We had a starter each in the restaurant before we went out for the evening and the food was outstanding. I thoroughly recommend... More

We ate here the other Saturday night, not having booked didn't matter as we were quickly found a table. The menu was typically pub food but at restaurant prices (£24 for a sirloin steak, £30 for fillet).

I travel frequently for business, perhaps 3 to 4 nights in the week away from home.
