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...

A small group of retired work colleagues recently visited Bradford on Avon for lunch. The pub we had chosen only served food in the evenings so we decided to visit The Dandy Lion instead. This turned out to be a good move, served by an attractive and helpful barmaid we all started with Wadworth 6X which was particularly tasty. They... More

The reading group from Holt went there last night for our Christmas meal. We ate from the christmas menu, food was good and plentiful. Servive was excellent and the pub was warm and cosy onna cold evening. The refurb has been done very tastefully. Thoroughly recommend.

Went for a wander round the village one Sunday and wanted to stop for lunch, found this place just off the high street- nice atmosphere, friendly and serving Sunday lunch with a vegetarian option at around 2.30pm, ordered one veggie for me and a beef meal for my partner. Mine was absolutely delicious, fellow veggies will know that very often... More

We ate here for my husband's birthday in October when there was 8 of us and the food was superb. The pie of the day and the lamb thoroughly recommended. You cannot leave without trying the homemade sticky toffee pudding. Best pudding ever. This meal was so good we came back for an anniversary lunch 10 days later. I had... More

so we returned for a sunday roast and i suppose it was a mixed affair. I think the staffing was a tad under and the host was preemptively highly apologetic and docked our bill accordingly. So: we could have been seated and then served earlier (would have then had time for a pudding ) and the yorkshires ought to have... More

Thursday evening, most of the restaurants and pubs half empty but the Dandy was heaving and we were lucky to get a table, good service, friendly staff and the food excellent. We had faggots, not something you normally see on a menu but they were gorgeous, tasty and sumptuous. Will eat here again and can recommend

One is never sure what to expect when picking a restaurant in a small town. The Dandy Lion was recommended by our host but still it ended up being a pleasant surprise.The location is perfect and central, close to the cute local shops Friendly barman greeted us and made us feel welcomed. Cosy seating (head upstairs for a comfortable booth)... More

Found this venue whilst on a day trip to Bradford on Avon. Very misleading from the outside as it doesn't look very big and can appear to be full. Do not be put off go inside as there is seating at the rear and upstairs. Menu is quite varied and they stock a good selection of drinks. Dogs are also... More
