Brilliant service, very family friendly too. Food was outstanding, neither adults nor children left a crumb on their plates. The children's menu was good value and of excellent quality.

Beautiful setting beside the river on a very warm and sunny day. Food was a little slow arriving and service was good but slow. The setting made up for it tho!

If I had to criticise anything, it would be that people do not queue to pay in the same room as people eating, especially in today’s climate, the machine is portable and can be used at the table.

Excellent Sunday lunch. Food was outstanding and the best beef I've ever had. We're in the area on holiday and it was so good we've booked to go back in the week.

Steak sandwich’s served cold and should have been described as an open sandwich- misleading!

Moules were very good.

Great spot, slow service.

Our first venture out since the restrictions allowed. Absolutely FABULOUS! The food was beautifully presented and as usual gorgeous. We felt very safe. There is plenty of room between tables and the Staff were all wearing full PPE. Lots of Antibacterial hand gel available. We will definitely be back. Well done everyone at the Lion. xx

Good food, slow service. No WiFi which made paying the bill somewhat lengthy as staff relied on dial up.

Service was good. The restaurant was busy, so we had to wait a while for starters and drinks. The drinks came just after the starters arrived! They had new staff who were polite, but there was one roaming around with their mask below their nose!

Excellent evening at The Lion. Considering how busy it looked due to the bank holiday weekend our food courses arrived with very little waiting and were exceptional.
Very friendly and efficient staff looked after us without being overly fussy, just right. Excellent beer and wine too, I recommend the Butty Bach, a very drinkable pint. We live locally and will definitely go again.

First time in the top bar as we had a little dog with us. Great to be able to be inside as the weather was a bit unpredictable. Staff and food great as always and they brought fresh water for the dog without being asked.
