Graham Coombs left this review about The Golden Lion (JD Wetherspoon)

Large Wetherspoons with hotel attached and even more emphasis on food than normal, with a large side room mainly populated by diners and a room at the back with a kitchen counter even more so. Still plenty of room for drinkers at the front though, and it also benefits from a large and very-tabled garden at the back, although this suffers a bit from traffic noise. The ale range included several Kentish beers, mainly from Wantsum, alongside the usual suspects and condition was good.

Real Ale Ray left this review about The Golden Lion (JD Wetherspoon)

Ten Pumps with nine ales, some doubled up and 1 cider. We went for the Oakham Inferno. There was a Spoons beer Festival on, with a few more choices from Hilden and Bru. This was a comfortable and respectable pub with a grey and turquoise colour scheme.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Golden Lion (JD Wetherspoon)

Substantial 'spoons hotel with an elongated bar supplemented by an additional seating / dining area of similar size on the right-hand side and further small section to front left and down a few steps at the back. Also has a large patio area to the rear. Never has that inspiring a selection of real ales from the two banks of five handpumps, with just Reckless Robin and Red Raddle from Wantsum as a change from the Ruddles, Doom Bar, Adnams Southwold, Old Speckled Hen and Abbot on this visit.
