I called to watch the rugby. At half time I requested food and a pint of Wye Valley HPA (a favourite from visiting the brewery). Food offered was scratchings, crisps or nuts. The beer took time to serve and even more time to settle. It did not clear and tasted like dish water. I explained to the chap behind the... More

This is not the first time I have visited. I visited last year also and remember very well how great the food was. This year I stayed next doors and popped into here a couple of times. The place was always steady with a flow of people, all good spirited. Staff even looked happy even when busy which was nice... More

Had the house burger with chips and a side of onion rings. Excellent value for money. Food really tasty, home cooked chips and home made onion rings. Partner had Fish and chips which was equally nice. Friendly staff and good atmosphere. Plenty of parking opposite

This was our first visit to the Lion for many years. We were delighted to find it has not changed one bit. The pub has the feel of the sort of pub that was around when I was younger but has largely died out and been replaced by chain family food pubs. The menu matches the venue perfectly it's all...
