Spent two consecutive evenings Dining at the Golden Lion in the wonderful small town of Corbridge steeped in Roman History. Very welcoming Staff set the tone amongst the homely décor near the open fire. Food really is exceptional and a must if you are in this part of the world. We will return on our next venture to Northumberland.

Four of us met up for lunch in Corbridge and decided to go to The Golden Lion after one or two recommendations from local shopkeepers ( we normally go elsewhere for lunch but fancied a change) The waitress was particularly friendly and helpful, even putting extra logs on the fire and using a fire lighter to get it blazing again....

Firstly Ted is my super Jack Russell dog and whilst he didn't dine at the hostelry he was made to feel very welcome by the staff. Secondly let me say that I am not one of those people who needs everything to be 'cordon bleu' foodwise nor 'CAMRA' rated five star beerwise. I look for good,warm, friendly service, well cooked...

Whilst staying in Corbridge we called in here several times, as a group and as a couple. We were made welcome every time, the beer was good and the staff were friendly. Only drawback was the one armed bandit.

Greeted well by staff and shown rooms. They were the usual type. Nothing startling but clean. Breakfast was any combination of items from an all English and very enjoyable. I recommend this hotel for a decent night.......in spite of the plumbing!

Booked through booking .com total price £59.95(I thought) be wary and check price as this is the single occupancy price and not for two persons (very misleading from booking.com and has happened before according to the manager). The total price was £89.95 which i found very hard to swallow after staying in room 6. As soon as you entered the...
