My son ordered a Tribute Steak pie. Arrived after one and half hours. Was a pastry rectangle with the meat concoction poured on top. Meat overcooked, taste not at all pleasant. Smelt and looked like canned meat. The pastry was actually completely raw. An absolute disgraceful meal, the chef shouldnt have sent out. It certainly in way should have been... More

Staff were friendly, we arrived before the start of the busy evening service on a Saturday. In our opinion the food served to us was as follows: Starters - Crayfish Thermidor; wasn't actually heated through properly, cold round the outside of the dish and just tasted of melted cheddar with cold fishy aftertaste. Mains - Gameskeeper casserole; wasn't seasoned and... More

Me and my partner went here for lunch when camping in the rain and had platefuls of food to keep us going through the day. We then returned in the evening and had 3 courses each. The gamekeepers casserole is well worth trying and is delicious. Again the places were full and so were we by the end. Really nice... More

My wife and our two grown up children had an excellent meal in very nice surroundings served by very friendly staff. The atmosphere was very pleasant, particularly the woodburning fire, and the view of the lake. A varied menu and a good selection of beers made choosing our food very difficult. All the courses were excellent but the rack of... More

Ate here twice during a long weekend stay nearby. Nothing flash here but a pretty broad menu that is decently priced and really well prepared and cooked. Kids meals excellent. Fish and sea food really very good and meat dishes generous and cooked how you like. Very pleasantly surprised. And great staff and service too.

decided to treat myself to a sunday lunch at the golden lion while visiting stithians lake. the meal was excellent and at a very reasonable price and the service was very good, no complaints. the added bonus of building up an appetite with a lovely stroll along the lake is great. i will be going back soon.

Having visited the Golden Lion on previous occasions we were looking for a comfortable pub to have a family dinner and chose it as its location is ideal for all of us in our group. Sadly, our greeting was a little spoilt by the waiting staff being obviously put out by an addition of one diner to our booking. They... More

Good place, good staff amazing food. Best in the summer time. Its location is a bit hard to find but once you have its well worth the effort. Plenty of perking and some amazing garden to sit in on nice warm afternoons
