Excellent food and a lovely atmosphere. My partner had the rack of Lamb and I had the ribeye steak. Very good service and friendly staff.

It was some years since we had used this location but this time it was ideally positioned for meeting some old friends. Front of house was a delightful gentleman who afforded us plenty of time to chat whilst we perused the menu in comfortable leather settees. We were shown to our table just prior to our order being served. Three of us had the slow roast belly pork whilst the other member of our group had the haddock and chips (small portion). The pork was cooked to perfection as were the accompanying vegetables. Unfortunately, the haddock was a lot smaller than anticipated so it would be useful to give a better indication of the portion size. We moved onto the desert course and again the dishes were home produced and cooked to perfection. Enjoyed the whole experience and will not leave it as long again to visit.

We booked the old lion to meet some friends we see rarely. We had a lovely table in v nice setting and I cannot fault it. Our Italian waiter was attentive to every detail. The food was very good standard and we will definitely visit again.

The food was vety good and nicely presented. A birthday cake I'd made was brought to the table without prompting and which made the whole experience very relaxing. Would certainly come again.

Four of us enjoyed dinner celebrating my birthday. The Old Lion has been recently updated, beautifully decorated and the restaurant has a smashing menu. Food was full of flavour, wonderfully cooked and very nicely presented. The owner was doing the waiting in the restaurant, a lovely gentleman and doing his diners proud.
