I have just visited this pub for a family meal and was extremely impressed. The food was exceptional and reasonably priced and the service was second to none. I would particularly like to mention how welcome we were made to feel by the waiter/barman Chris. I will most certainly be recommending this restaurant to family and friends .

Phoned up 4pm sunday for 16 fit in at 5pm Good food will be going again.
Would never eat there again. Took my mum on mothers day for a booked meal. Landlady very gobby.
Been stacks of times. Love it! Had a party for about 125 people. Been to funeral reception there. We (immediate family) and our extended family love everything about it. Thanks to all.
We called in for a family meal last November midweek on a quiet night. 4 Adults and 2 children and as the food was so undercooked including the children’s burger which was cold and red in the middle and all the chips still hard and cold veg, we felt the food was unsafe to eat. The menu had also changed and the quality of the food seemed poor (which can be down to cut backs by the group and not the fault of the location). Due to the large amounts of food we left on our plates we were asked by the waitress if there was a problem which we explained; but as the Manager was not on site there was nothing she could do.I had already made a reserved booking for just before Christmas so the next day I phoned to cancel this booking and spoke to the Manager, who truly seemed concerned that we had been serviced uncooked meat and said she would ring us in January to see if the family would like to return.. we never received the call..
The manageress at this pub is the rudest person I have come across. After saying we would have a wait of 15 -20 minuters, we waited one and half hours. As soon as we had finshed our meal (three lady pensioners) she said "I want this table and I want it now, go finish your drinks at the bar" we left the table and paid our bill but we won't be returning whilst she is in charge.
We have been quite a few times now and had a lovely meal very pleasant staff and nice clean enviroment. Well done Sue and Joe Hallett.
Good pub and food except for the landlady who is the most rude and obnoxious woman I have ever met. The poor bar staff, I dont know how they manage to work for her!
Myself and my Family have visited the Golden Lion several times. We are so pleased with everything we are looking to bring a party of roughly about 15 people on Sunday 15/02/2009
