Will Larter left this review about The Golden Lion

I hadn't planned on going in this one, but while taking a photograph was intrigued by the building and its situation, and the old Tetleys branding in the widows. On looking through those windows however, I spied a totally empty pub with a bank of five hand pumps, of which only one had a pump clip. I decided to swerve it on this occasion: perhaps it's livelier in summer?

Lounge to right, with tap room to rear. The poor lass behind the bar was flooded out with tap room customers, all appeared to be locals. Three real ales.

Excellent location and nice looking pub at the bottom of Golden Lion Bank Small front bar with fake black beams & pictures of River Esk together with a telly for the racing. Large back bar with more basic feel. More of a locals pub than one for tourists. " real ales, Black Sheep & Bombardier, but quality could be better.
