Blackthorn _ left this review about The Golden Lion

A good sized pub towards the end of the High Street, with a few picnic benches at the front, this was quite busy on a recent Thursday evening visit, although this may be explained in part by the visiting darts team which the landlord enquired if we were part of.

It’s a U-shape building with an extra room off to the right. Decor wise, it seems fairly contemporary with a mixture of carpet and wood strip on the floor. The top part of the right hand side looks as though it may be a skittle alley, although this was in darkness on our visit. To the left is a pool table and darts board. This means that seating in the bar is really very limited with only a couple of sofa’s and some bar stools, and as it’s not currently the weather for sitting outside our options were limited. In the end we elected to sitting in the dining area as there were only a couple of other punters in there, but clearly that would not be practical if it were full of people eating.

The dining room is a pleasant enough space, with lime green paintwork and a small wood burning stove although it did not look as though this was used. Some open shelving offered glimpses of the bar and housed a collection of tea pots. Food wise, the menu looked to be a fairly typical pub grub offering, with options such as Ham Egg & Chips, Bangers & Mash, Chilli Con Carne, etc., as well as a choice of Pasta, Salads, Burgers and Steaks. Most of the mains were around the £7 - £8 mark.

Beers on tap were Exmoor Ale and Otter Ale, whilst the ciders were Thatcher’s Gold and Stowford Press.
