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.

Went to the Lion for a sandwich and beer lunch. No problems - ham sandwich good, Ludlow Gold beer good, service good Although they have a bar and dining room, both were laid up for lunch whereas we might have felt more comfortable with a more basis décor. Excellent location by the river - the hotel has clearly had an...

Good afternoon, Thank you for calling in for lunch and for leaving your positive review. We have been open for just over six years since we took over and renovated the Lion and so far it has been successful, I am not sure how long 'time' is but I do know that we have some very satisfied customers who return...

Second visit today, not disappointed. We both had fish and chips and they were amongst the best ever (surprising how many places can ruin a basic dish like this) On previous visit we had sandwiches which had a selection of interesting fillings and were excellent. Staff are friendly and efficient. Definitely worth a look if you are in the area

We were working locally and wouldn't be returning till about 5am, this was not a problem for the lady on reception and very kindly explained our situation to the chef who organised a very late breakfast for myself and colleagues.

The puddings were delicious too, sticky toffee pudding and apple crumble. I think you would need to book a table on a weekend as they...
