we live within 3 miles of the lion and thought we would go there fo lunch,we arrived at 12.30 but the barmaid seemed more interested in the glass washer than customers,when she finally realised that she had customers she got our drinks and took our orders for lunch,even though we were in the restaraunt i had to go to the bar for more drinks as the glass washer seemed more important, when the meal arrived it was good but no one came near us to see if all was ok,when we finished we sat and waited for the plates to be cleared and to order a sweet and coffee,but we gave up on that idea and walked to the bar and paid for our meal,
very poor service as there was only us and one other couple in the restaraunt and bar

We were passing one Sunday and called in on the off chance of having Sunday lunch. It was amazing and possibly one of the finest Sunday lunches we have ever had. The welcome was great as was the beer. I had the pork and my partner had the beef. The meat was of top quality and being a retired agricultural auctioneer I do know just a little about meat. It was not the usual "plastic" catering style meat but excellent cuts of meat, well served and delicious. The pudding was also good and well prepared. I had the plum crumble and this came with an additional gravy boat full of custard. Very welcome. We can recommend this inn whole heartedly and will definitely return Thanks Lion Inn

Fabulous real old fashioned pub with friendly welcoming staff. We stopped here for dinner, food was fabulous lots to choose from cooked by Debbie (the landlady) who is a wiz in the kitchen, we had the Chicken Curry and home baked Lasagne, such generous sized portions both went down really well along with some of the local ales.
Defiantly worth a visit, we will be going back.

The Lion has such a welcoming atmosphere in it, with an open fire and a good selections of local draught beers and ciders.

The menu varies, with a nice sitting area within the pub, but place in a quiet enough part so that conversations can be enjoyed.

There are music night held regularly, with an 'open mike' facility for those who aspire to stardom!

There is also a good sitting area outside.
