I have visited this restaurant twice now and both times have been an enjoyable experience, there is always a lovely and welcoming atmosphere and the food is perfect and very reasonably priced.
I would highly recommend this place to anyone and everyone.
I look forward to returning again in the near future.

We arranged with Gareth to have my daughters 21st Birthday dinner at The Lion Restaurant, we wanted to have a Murder Mystery party set in the 1920's, Gareth and his staff made our evening fabulous, from the wonderful doorman who had to stand outside in the rain and take our passes and ask for our password to enable us to enter the "speakeasy" to the fantastic 3 course dinner. Gareth and his staff worked wonders with the room we booked, we had Kir Royale's on arrival and a set 3 course dinner (arranged with Gareth) The food was amazing and the service from our allocated waitress was brilliant, she was very attentive and smiled the whole time (even though we took an age to determine who the murderer was) the whole evening was fabulous. We would all like to thank Gareth and his wonderful staff for making our daughter's dinner party a success.

Had planned to stay at "The Sherriffs" nearby for some months, so four of us did a reccy a few weeks ago and had a fabulous meal at the Lion, so we returned last Friday for the big birthday, , six couples "real foodies", one couple who own two restaurants of their own and we all enjoyed the most fabulous food. The service was fabulous and the Chef a real talent. One of our group who is the most difficult person in the world to please said it was the best meal he had ever had!!!! Thank you so much to Gareth and his staff!!!

This is a good restaurant serving fresh local ingredients. It's the sort of food you'd expect to get in a trendy london restaurant.

This is a gem. Good menu choice, very good cooking, friendly staff and nice atmosphere.
Four of us had dinner and for starters, the warm duck and fig was lovely and the scallops were spot on. For mains the steak was well-cooked and the partridge was just excellent. The home-made desert ice creams were fabulous and she who had the Knickerbocker Glory was bowled over by it!
The staff were very attentive and friendly, the service prompt but not a rush.
Overall, excellent value and definitely worth a visit.
