Old Boots left this review about The Golden Lion

I reckon Jon B nails it with “charmless”. Consider the facts: owned by Greene King, on a tourist hot spot street in a tourist hotspot city, usual half trained bar staff, five warm sad cask beers two of which are from GK, usual suspects kegs, the short measure was a blessing. All that was missing was the chip fat and vinegar smell typical of these places.

Called in here last month and chose Isaac Poad A Knight's Ale from the cask selection available.

Charmless sort of city centre chain pub full of tourists and loud sweary twenty somethings. Reminds me of those generic pubs that you get everywhere in the middle of London. stinks of food as well and pint of Dishwater IPA set me back £4.15 in here.
