The Eatery at the Golden Lion is so named because it offers a comprehensive, but not overwhelming, menu which is available throughout our historic coaching inn but also alfresco in the courtyard area. For larger groups we also have plenty of seating in the many of the hotels alcoves.

Greene King - This beer is characterised by its hoppy taste and aroma that comes from the use of Challenger and First Gold hops which are combined with pale and crystal malts.
