Beautiful setting. Lovely old hotel. Good food. Very peaceful on the edge of a river. Stayed in room 1 overlooking garden and river. Antique furniture but modern bathroom. Recommend the Sly gin served with strawberries.

We booked lunch this Sunday very pleasant staff welcomed us. Had a drink at the bar then went to the restaurant The food was delicious we had the mushrooms starter, my husband did and a lamb and beef main course. The starter was served quickly, but we had to wait quite a while for our main course, I mentioned it...

Called in for Sunday lunch whilst travelling through the village. Very welcoming and friendly staff. Excellent 12 hour cooked brisket and good meat free choices. Very nice beer garden overlooking a river. Would certainly return , a very nice place deserving of the good reviews.

Excellent restaurant service, excellent food, a gin menu 😬, lovely setting & only down the road. I would really recommend The Lion for those who want a special meal, the food is incredible. I'm vegetarian but the menu had great choices.

Thank you for your review. I am personally very excited about the gin menu too, but if course if I don't also agree with your comments about the food and service I will be lynched! Seriously though, we really appreciate your time and your review and look forward to seeing you again soon.

Warm and friendly staff. Prompt service. Got room service breakfast at no additonal cost and tailored to suit my diet. Clean room and bath. Toiletries were a real bonus. Beatiful garden along the river and the dinner was excellent. Great value for money. Would definitely return and highly recommend it.

Stayed here on business, room very comfortable, food excellent, staff outstanding! Nice location overlooking the river. After a long drive it was nice to see a very welcoming sight, situated at the bottom of the village the Pub looked as though it had been recently renovated, everywhere was clean and tidy. Not the biggest hotel but the staff are great....

We stayed and ate here for 2 nights with friends that had stayed before and told us how good it was. And they were not wrong. We stayed in a lovely spotless room overlooking the bridge and river. Everything needed was in the room and a nice touch were the extra thick soft towels stored on the hot towel rail....

Eight of us for lunch and the baby and we were looked after really well . Food was great and three good course of quality for £23 a head. Very comfortable and on a sunny day you can sit and eat by the side of the river. Very Lovely. Good beer and wine choice.

Our family of five had Sunday lunch at the Lion. We'd eaten here before (although several years ago) and it had been very good. We were excited and had driven for 45 minutes to get to the pub, looking forward to another memorable occasion. Unfortunately this experience was not good. The first problem was that one of our pre-lunch drinks...

Thank you for your review. I am so sorry that your experience wasn't up to expectation, although it seems we redeemed ourselves with desserts and the view! I will pass your comments along to our front of house team and the kitchen it is always useful to know when we haven't quite reached the standards of perfection we aspire to...

My wife and I had a splendid Sunday lunch. Roasted plum Tomato soup, smoked salmon and capers and 12 hour boiled brisket - absolutely delicious, excellent service and reasonable prices. We will be back and would like to stay there.
