Having read the reviews we were definitely not disappointed by both the warm welcome and excellent twin room with fantastic soft beds and pillows (with extras stored in the wardrobe if needed). The quality of the finish in the room and indeed the Inn itself...More

Popped in here for a business meeting on Saturday They do not take bookings unless over 10 people, and saw the place was packed so was a little concerned They give you a sheet of paper that you order your drinks on at the bar...More

Seven of us went for dinner on a Saturday. Everything was spot on as usual having eaten at the Lion many times before. All the courses came out together. The deep fried poached eggs were amazing. A big thank you to all the staff.

Attended there a very enjoyable business dinner. Friendly and helpful service and delicious fresh food. Be sure to check the board for day's special treats! Tried also the Blueshack ale - I can recommend this also with confidence. 5/5
