Used to be regulars when run by last owners. Lunch special offer 2 for £10 tempted us back in and I'm so happy it's back to being a warm and friendly local pub, decent home cooked food and good beer selection for hubby. Tip - I'd opt for veg over salad if given the choice as veg was plentiful and fresh whereas salad watery. Will be back. Yay for the Golden Lion

Decided to treat my folks to a meal at the lion. Upon entering we were greeted by a friendly member of staff and felt right at home! A great range of ales where on offer and at a very reasonable price. The service was very quick and the food was delicious and plentiful.

The landlord and landlady have done a fantastic job in bringing the pub back to it's full glory and it's great to know it's in such safe hands!

I decided to try out this place after reading the good reviews on trip advisor. The staff were very friendly and helpful but the service was quite slow, even though there was only 2 of us eating. When our food arrived it was not as good as we were expecting, it was just normal pub grub. Dont think we will be going back in a hurry.

Stopped here by complete fluke on Sunday coming back from the Lakes with my girlfriend. Decided we were rather peckish about half two and just pulled off the M61. Luckily for us the nearest pub showing on Google maps was closed so we went here. Really warm welcome, chilled afternoon reading papers with a swift 'half' and then the food came. My girlfriend had the Wheelton BBQ chicken and it was awesome. I had the Steak'n'ale pie and that was also amazing. Great ingredients cooked really well - how can you go wrong. Proper chips too and really nice fresh veg. Sticky toffee pudding anyone? YES PLEASE from here :) :)
Even planning to use the excuse of a trip to Boundry Mill as a feeble excuse to come back.
