    A warm and friendly welcome each time we have been. This pub has a nice upmarket feel about it without being too stuffy. Food has been excellent each time we have visited, both lunchtime and evening, particularly enjoyed the scotch egg starter and the burger with blue cheese topping, also the cod and chips was beautiful ......quality food and cooking every time .

    Excellent service and careful to maintain social distancing at all times - we could not have felt safer. The food was great (we had a range of starters in a tapas style) and was just right for lunch. The decor was lovely and it looked completely refurnished and clean. There was one item which we didn't like (the soctch egg which we found to be too salty) but that may just be our particular preferences. We also thought that it was great value for money so we'll definitely be going back!

    Fantastic meal. Staff very organised and serious to begin with to ensure we understood the rules put in place for our safety. Which I appreciated to be honest. Once seated watiers were lovely and very attentive. Pork belly bites starter was just an amazing way to start the meal. Fillet steak cooked to perfection and baked cod went down a treat. Reduced menu due to reduced staff members (covid19 restrictions) but so much choice on the menu. Want to go back to try the scotched egg starter. Seen a few plates come out the kitchen and they looked amazing. So definitely will return. Thank you.

    Beautiful meal and fast service. Considering the ‘limited’ menu (which was surprisingly vast in option) and the recent COVID set back The Old Lion did not fail to impress. Thanos, our waiter for the evening was charming and kind, and made a great effort to see we were satisfied all night. The food was nothing short of excellence; although on the high end of pub grub, you get what you pay for. With most of our party ordering steak and ale pie, and one ordering a steak with chips (cooked to perfection may I say) we were nothing short of blown away by the beautiful, tender meals we ate. I will definitely be going back with my friends. Additionally I’d like to thank Thanos and the staff for not having a negative outlooks on 4 18 year old boys who came to visit. We were there for a good meal and a few beers and not to cause hassle. It seems like when you walk into a bar/pub with a group of young lads, discrimination is at the first hurdle. But here... we were greeted as any other person would! We will definitely be coming back. Thank-you Thanos

    we were hesitant in going to lunch but the staff at " The Old Lion " were quick to put our minds at rest. The restaurant is set out to social distancing standards but still remains a lovely place to eat. The food was outstanding and the service second to none. So good in fact we booked for next Sunday also.
