After not being able to book on open table yesterday we decided to go to the lion and see if we could get a table for lunch today. After a 5-10 minute wait at the front door we were offered a table inside or outside. We chose to opt for outside due to the lovely weather. The location here is truly beautiful right next to the river, I wish I could say the same for the food. We were quickly offered drinks and given menus I opted for the moules mariniere which was good. My other half went for the battered hake and chips. The fish must be bought in frozen and pre battered. A soggy small fillet of hake pretty much inedible, a mountain of dry peas that I assume were heated in a saucepan and crushed with the back of a spoon. Chips tasted awful I’m guessing Sunday’s left over roast potatoes cut up and refried. Considering there was 95% of the food untouched on the plate I was a little astounded when the waitress came to the table and simply said. “Have you finished?” Not a single question asked about the meal or why so much was left. We mentioned this upon paying at the bar and was given a simple sorry no explanation or price change on the bill. Ive always worked locally as a chef and the fish you sent out today was totally unacceptable.…
The staff made us feel very relaxed and had found out it was our anniversary so gave us a glass Prosecco on our arrival. A very nice touch. The food was excellent and the service was faultless. A really enjoyable night.
Unplanned visit whilst driving past, and decided to stop for a drink. Wonderful riverside gardens, and the food looked great so we decided to have lunch. Good, varied menu, quick service and the food was excellent - well presented, tasty and delivered nice and hot. The staff were very pleasant and helpful, arrangements for the Covid maddness were efficient but not overpowering, and we thoroughly enjoyed our visit. If ever in the area again, we would certainly return.
We had a lovely stay for 3 nights over the August bank holiday weekend with our 8 year old daughter. Lovely rooms, excellent staff and excellent food. A lovely setting right by the river. We will definitely come back next year and would highly recommend as a lovely location and place to stay. Thank you the Lion.
My experiences of a sunday lunch have gone from quite nice to downright awful. Yesterday "quite nice" changed to absolutely perfect! We called in hoping they had a table free, as we hadn't booked. The member of staff was very friendly, and soon we were seated, had drinks and a menu. It is not budget price, but in the current climate, and because we had not booked, we decided to go ahead and eat, regardless of the cost. First we had soup of the day, which was tomato and red pepper. I could not believe how tasty it was! I loved every last drop, along with the nice bread and ample butter that came with it. After a reasonable length of time, our meal of roast sirloin with roast potatoes, roast and boiled vegetables, and a massive featherlight yorkshire pudding arrived. We were offered extra gravy, and condiments, which were accepted as usually gravy is at a minimum - not so! although I had enough, my partner tucked in with the extra because I think it was so good! Every part of that meal was perfect, and the red wine gravy was the best I have ever had. I could imagine the chef standing over his cooker, watching so that each item was cooked to absolute perfection! Every mouthful was full of flovour and cooked perfectly, including the beef. Service was on time, and extremely friendly without being a nuisance or pushy. We will be calling again, as occasionally my hobby takes us through Leintwardine. Thank you, the experience was first class!…
