Visited the Lion and Unicorn for a bite to eat whilst on our way to doune. We only had about an hour to have lunch which we thought would be plenty of time. Turns out we only had time for a starter. There only seemed to be one waitress serving tables, even though there were 3-4 memebrs of staff walking around. We were seated and got a drink and ordered a small starter each. This took 20 minutes to arrive. We did both really enjoyed it but thought this was very slow for what it was (one bowl of soup with a roll and a small chicken salad.) We then sat with empty plates for 10 minutes before they were cleared and asked if we would like a dessert - which we did. But it wasnt until 15 minutes later the waitress came back with the menu. By this time we didnt have time for a dessert so asked for the bill instead. 10 minutes later we still hadnt had our bill so we had to go to the bar to pay for it there. So all in all we were in for 50-55 minutes and only managed one course. It's a shame because it is a very nice little pub with nice decor and nice food, just wish we had had the chance to try more of the food!!
