Upscale, classic English pub! Very clean and the food is scrumptious and filling. Furthermore, the staff is extremely friendly.

I booked a table for my partners birthday and we both ordered the faggots, delicious! We frequently visit this little gem and are never disappointed. Lovely food, relaxed atmosphere and friendly staff, don't go anywhere else!

Arrived here on a Friday lunchtime following a local walk with friends. We wanted to investigate it's offering as it is a sister pub of the Bull in Hinton which we all know very well.I have to say I was impressed with both service and food (with one exception).Unfortunately my friend had asked for a Gluten Free battered fish and...

I'm never dissapointed with the Dandy Lion, food is great, atmosphere warm and cozy on a bleak winters day. A lovely place to take your lover for a meal or drink out together.

Seventeen of us visited The Dandy Lion for our annual New Year's Day lunch. We had pre ordered as there were so many of us but we had a while to wait for the starters to arrive. My husband had the crispy belly pork and there was five pieces cooked to perfection. No complaints from anyone about the starters. Another... More

It has been a very long time since we have visited The Dandy Lion, and we are very pleased we decided to go back having been influenced by positive comments from the local community. We were surprised how busy the pub was given we arrived on a cold wet and misty night the day before New Years Eve. We were... More

We visited BoA for an Bath Comedy Festival event and we decided to try the Dandy Lion as it look very inviting and had a nice menu displayed. We had a pair of good Wadworths ales and cod & chips and the Dandy Burger. Food was ok, just wish they would not serve burgers on wooden planks, might be trendy... More

Upon visiting Bradford-on-Avon we were looking for somewhere to eat, eventually settling on The Dandy Lion after finding a seat on a fairly busy day. The menu is great, lots of classics for a reasonable price including Burgers for around £10 and pies etc. Its also very cosy and very clean including the toilets. After putting in our order we...
