An excellent first experience (we believe this is 'twinned' with the Devonshire at Upper Langwith which is also highly recommended). An excellent meal with good service in nice surroundings. Will definitely return when next in the neighbourhood.

A cute little find, which was beautifully decorated for Christmas. Even though we visited a little after Christmas it was lovely to see crackers at the table. The service was swift and polite. The food was generous and very tasty. The mushroom starter was divine although a little on the large side. We didn't make it to dessert but I'm... More

I visited The Lion with family for lunch on a Saturday. The main meals were lovely, good portion sizes and great tasting food. The same can be said for the desserts too. Good service even though there was a big party dining. We will definitely return!
