Alan Winfield left this review about The Golden Lion

The Golden Lion is a decent sized corner pub that i quite liked the look of from the outside.
Once inside there is an L shaped room with the bar facing,the room is bare boarded,there is comfy bench seating and small stools to the front and rear left,there is a separate room to the rear right.
There were three real ales on the bar,i had a drink of Butcombe Bitter which went down well,the other beers were Purity Mad Goose and Purity UBU.
Background music was playing and the outside seating was in use as it was a nice early Spring day.
I quite liked this pub.

A reasonable size, U-shape pub with a somewhat unusual appearance being complete covered outside by murals. The larger part of the pub to the left has a stage area at the rear and this was in use by a female vocalist and her band on a recent Tuesday night visit. This permeated throughout the pub which made conversation difficult, and perhaps accounted for the large number of people sat outside on the pavement benches.

Decor is fairly old and traditional, with an old parquet wood floor in the right hand bar, which also had a small fireplace, and strip wood flooring elsewhere. Paintwork is a mixture of mustard yellow and burgundy, and this gives a slightly gloomy air to the place. Live music seems to be a regular feature here and the pub lends itself well to this type of entertainment.

Beers on tap were Butcombe Gold and Gem. It looks as though Doom Bar is usually on as well, but this had run out on our visit. Ciders were well represented with Aspall’s Suffolk, Thatcher’s Traditional, Weston’s Old Rosie and Stowford Press.
