4 of us went for an evening meal and it was faultless. With one vegetarian, one gluten free and 2 normals we were all well catered for and had good choices. The food quality was superb, the venue had a lovely feel to it and the staff really made it. Our main waiter was Joe and he was attentive, put... More

Visited to cheer my daughter up while she recovered from a recent operation. The setting is friendly and relaxing with a menu that is not expansive but offers a good range of beautifully cooked dishes. There is no frown either from the lovely staff when just tap water is requested as a drink. The staff are attentive at the right... More

Took my parents to the Lion at Farnsfield as a thank you for looking after me during a short spell of ill health. Service was prompt and attentive and food good apart from the chef liked his salt.

It is well worth a visit. The service was excellent. The food was fabulous. I can't fault anything. We are looking forward to our... More

Saturday lunch was wonderful. Enjoyed the blade beef, whilst others enjoyed the slow cooked lamb and the vegetarian pie.

We were too early to eat but the bar area is lovely and we sat and had a drink whilst playing the board games that are available until our table was ready. Service is great (we were served by the lovely Alice) and food fabulous too.

Came here for a nice relaxing meal turned out to be a relay. The young waitress came and took our order for starters and mains. They came out very quickly all we're very nice and presented. They came and hurriedly took them away reaching over all of us to grab the plates. Within a few minutes out came mains, this... More
