We arrived early and were shown straight to our room. The room was modern, clean and very comfortable. The staff are very helpful. Breakfast was ordered for 8am as we had to leave for an event and it was ready for us on time. Great place to stay, we hope to return. Our evening meal was very good.

We stayed at The Lion at West Pennard on our way back from a break in Dorset. The rooms were spacious and really nicely decorated with a luxorious wet room. The whole place has an excellent atmosphere and feels very relaxed. The food was excellent, both the dinner we enjoyed out on the tables at the front of The Lion and the breakfast which was generous and served with good coffee (something we often find is forgotten in some pubs). The team were lovely and we'd definitely stay here again when we're next in the area.

Fabulous lunchtime meal at The Lion at West Pennard. Great setting, atmosphere and excellent service, Barrie and Christian Lockyer doing their usual superb hosting. Well worth a visit for an evening or lunchtime meal and pleasingly large Malbec.

Just popped in to The Lion en route to Old Oaks Camping/Touring/Glamping site, for some lunch prior to check in. Had a superb light lunch, a shared Cray fish tail starter, 2x Thai prawn filled flatbreads and two superb desserts, olive oil cake and a white miso deconstructed cheesecake which was amazing. Two glasses of picpoult and pint of Atlantic IPA for £51. Very good value for the quality of food. Have definitely paid more for less elsewhere. Thoroughly recommend this dog friendly pub/hotel if you are in the area or passing through. Landlord only been in since November 2020. Doing a great job!
