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

A grand and ancient country pub with views over the River Darent, The Lion – Farningham dates back to the 16th century, and offers well-loved British pub cuisine. It features a combination of traditional and modern furnishings, through the cosy brick hearth and plush armchairs, but also modern art and colourful curtains and cushions. The food can also be enjoyed from outside, in the pretty al fresco garden.
Hearty Sunday roasts and trusty British dishes head The Lion menu, and a range just for kids offers mini versions of pub favourites. Signature Vintage pies offer fillings like beef & merlot with buttered peas, while The Lion ‘Vintage classics’ menu includes lemon & garlic-roasted chicken with seasoned chips.
Paying homage to the Great British pub, the Vintage Inn bar stock includes cask-conditioned beers, real ales and a meticulously compiled wine list. Thirst-quenching offerings include seasonal non-alcoholic cocktails and freshly-pressed juices, and rich coffee is brewed freshly throughout the day.
The Lion is just 4 minutes’ drive from Farningham Road Train Station, in the scenic Kent.

Have dined here many times, but tonight's experience wasn't one of the best! Service was very slow, but they maybe because of the warm evening, people were dining outside, the restaurant wasn't particularly busy. However, I will go back
