Visited here on Sunday evening and they had live music in bar area so we decided to sit in lounge, they had different music playing in lounge which was very distracting as both lots of music were bouncing of each other so i closed lounge door as to hear each other, to which the receptionist Sarah came storming through saying...

Food dreadful . I stopped for a quick sandwich and glass of wine after having been recommended this establishment. On arrival the staff were lovely and I ordered a steak and onion baguette @£6.50. It was the most tasteless thing that I have eaten in a long while. Doughy baguette and tiny pieces of sliced steak with mushy onions, a... More

We visited to enjoy a steak meal which was adequate if nothing. It was what you'd expect for any pub meal. The service was excellent from the very polite and helpful staff but due to the fact that it is only a pub the experience was hampered by a large group of fellers on the next table passing rude stories...

The Golden Lion hosted possibly the best New Year's Eve celebration we have been to in recent years. The venue, food, especially the staff and the entertainment were faultless. Well done everyone and thank you for a brilliant night.

We visited the cocktail bar and were told that it opened at 5pm. When we arrived we were told that we would have to leave at 6 pm. The cocktails themselves were good, but the tables hadn't been cleared from earlier, and the salt, pepper and vinegar rather spoilt the exciting cocktail atmosphere. Staff were not too welcoming.
