    Such a beautiful place, we always love to visit The Lion. It's the nicest Cotswold Pub that you could ever wish for. The service was fabulous, Gonzalo our waiter was very attentive as always, there was a lovely atmosphere, good variety on the menu. My husband and I both had fish dishes which were delicious.Really enjoyed sitting by the roaring open fire after outer meal having a few drinks! I would thoroughly recommend a visit to The Lion.
