With open fireplaces and a beautiful beer garden, The Golden Lion offers all the charm and tradition of an authentic British pub. Along with a constantly changing selection of beers and ales, classic pub cuisine is served alongside international dishes.

The Golden Lion menu combines classic British dishes with exciting global options. Favourites like toad in the hole and gammon steak with pineapple offer a true taste of the countryside pub. Exotic international options include Thai chicken skewered on lemon grass with king prawns. A large salad selection and gourmet vegetarian options are also served.

Along with the fine choice of British beers and ales, an extensive world wine list features at The Golden Lion Cheshire to complement the wide array of fresh seafood available.

The Golden Lion restaurant sits in the pretty Welsh village of Rossett, rich in local history and welcoming charm.

    Booked for lunch yesterday with my husband and our son. We all had the soup of the day for starters but all had different mains. I had the chicken curry, our son had the fish and chips while my husband chose the ham roll with a portion of chips off the light bite menu. All were delicious and served by friendly and polite staff.

    very friendly service and excellent food. I've been here twice in the last fortnight and on both visits the service in particular was excellent. It was particularly useful being able to pre-order to save time on a lunch visit.

    This was very disappointing, as was my visit a few months ago -the quality of the food seems to have deteriorated recently. My stak was mostly reasonable, though too pink for a medium , but a third of the steak was tough and I had to leave it. The mixed vegetables were very poor- microwaved I think, which leaves whole carrots hard - they were all tasteless and had no seasoning, butter or sauce to make them more palatable. We didn't order dessert as we were disappointed with the main course.

    The pub itself has a nice cosy feel. We were shown to our table, had our mains order taken and delivered. The food was well cooked and tasty. A waiter came to take away our plates and asked if we wanted to see the dessert menu. We said "Yes please". Then we waited and waited and waited. Other tables had orders taken etc and still we waited. Then another chap asked if we wanted to see the dessert menu. We explained we had waited about 10 minutes for one already and said no to the menu a second time but can we have another pint and the bill. The pint and the bill arrived and I retrieved my credit card to pay. Then we waited and waited and waited again. We waited so long I finished my second pint and was on the point of walking out. At this point a chap arrived with the card reader and asked if everything had been OK. When I said "No, not really, I feel like I've become invisible in the last hour." he just looked at me and handed me the machine and asked for my PIN. He handed me my receipt and walked away. We left.

    The customer service was awful. I felt unimportant and overlooked. I would certainly not recommend this place to anyone else. There are many other places to eat around this area with the same style and price point, where you can get far better service and I shall patronise these places instead.

    The service was excellent and the staff were very friendly and accommodating. The one disappointment was the limited menu which we where advised was due to an oven breakdown, which I know cannot be helped. However whilst I would not usually have chosen a salad the Prawn and Crab salad was great and I would definitely have it again
