    Lovely location and pub/restaurant. Food good but service was poor. Waited over an hour for main meal, didn’t bother with a pudding as was told that was a 45 minute wait. Coffees in the garden also took an age. Will return but not for food.

    Clare was an excellent waitress. Food was good although my butterscotch pudding was a bit small but tasted great

    We have eaten here several times before and more recently have particularly enjoyed the Vintage Inn era. The place is really comfortable, full of interest and character. The food has also been intereresting and enjoyable with good service to complement it. However, on this occasion, the experience was not up to par! Some dishes were not available and some delivered were not inspiring. The special Prawn cocktail turned out to be a dinner plate covered in chopped lettuce with a lonely little pile of bland prawns on one edge, the treacle pudding consisted of two artistically placed slices that were verging on dry and pretty tasteless, the gammon I had was also pretty dry, the skin on the belly of pork was streatchy, the baked Alaska was not a baked Alaska and even after sharing it around, we could not get rid of it. It has to go. We had to chase up the waiters several times just to get another bottle of wine to the point of being embarrassing. On the positive side, the fish was excellent, the atmosphere was excellent and when we got the attention of an excellent waitress we have seen before, Serice was restored. I suspect that everybody in the place was pretty worn out at the end of the Xmas/New year period because this is not reprentative of one of our favourite places. As it happened, except for chasing up service, nobody made a fuss because the atmosphere and company overshadowed the shortfalls. The issue is that the shortfalls will live in my companions minds and as I recommended the venue, I felt obliged to comment. Having said all of that, This was not reprentative of what I consider to be one of the best Inns and Pub chains. If this had been my first visit, I would have made a strong complaint at the time and not revisited! I am confident I can continue to visit the Lion and enjoy an excellent experience. On that basis, I would be quite happy if this feedback was not made public but used as Heads Up for internal consideration. Score based on this visit
