Blackthorn _ left this review about The Lamb and Lion

A good sized pub just off the main shopping street, but lacking much in the way of any individual character or personality. It looks to have been recently refurbished and was tidy enough, but that’s about all I can really say in it’s favour.

There are several different rooms all full of tables and chairs, and food is clearly a major draw here. We didn’t try it ourselves so I can’t comment on it, but it certainly seemed popular with barely a free table in the pub. Then again, perhaps that’s inevitable given it’s proximity to the shops, the time of year and the time of day (early evening) that we visited. A sign advertised curry and steak nights, and a board listed a selection of pies that were available. These are apparently available as part of a “pie and pint” deal for £5.50.

Decor is unremarkable with flock wallpaper and carpet throughout, except for a tiled area around the bar and numerous black and white photos on the walls. There were also a couple of plasma screens on the wall and a notice advertised a regular quiz night. A sign on the bar proclaimed “real ales sold here” but since they only had one on, that seemed somewhat misleading. Clearly somebody should have removed it.

The solitary beer offering was Doom Bar. There were pumps for EPA and London Pride, but these had both apparently run out. Not a good sign at 6:00pm on a Friday evening. Who on earth does their stock control? Ciders faired no better with just Strongbow available, unfortunately.
