The Lion is a nice pub, restaurant and hotel. The staff were friendly and helpful. Our dinner and breakfast meals were very good and highly recommended (reservations advised for dinner).

Stayed recently for business. Communal areas are pleasant, modern and spacious. Large outside seating area so great for a sunny day or evening and the Pizzas looked great. Rooms in need of updating - all very tired and mismatched. Perhaps I had an older style room...

Nice place to stay - Some of the rooms could do with a little updating but overall it's good value. Stayed over christmas and was impressed with the service. Nice bar and restaurant area, looks like they do pizzas at more normal times.

Normally just one night here on a regular basis but a great hotel - rooms on the smallish side but great pizzas in the bar and the breakfasts are to die for included in the room price. Good location - close to exploring the rest of Belper and the real ale pubs

Visited for a Saturday afternoon leisurely late lunch - hadn't booked but managed to get a table for 2 easily enough. Good menu choices, prompt and pleasant service, food and drinks very good. Reasonable value too, for me best place for pub food in Belper town just now

The Beef stroganoff was very tasty & bread & butter chocolate pudding delicious but the service was very slow & inattentive. I will return to try the pizzas which looked great but not when in a hurry.

Great attention to detail. Friendly welcome. Clean & comfortable room with TV easy to use, shower set at right temperature etc. Moreover, a good Breakfast promptly cooked & served, with the bonus of fresh melon, grapefruit, pineapple. Deserves to be much better known about.
