The Merrie Lion The Merrie Lion Still without a soft drinks chiller after 7 days. Very poor support and service from @Britvic given the time of year. 1:27 PM Dec 28th 2018 from Twitter Web Client

Pleasant multi-roomed village pub laid out on several levels around a central servery, as described by BF below, and thankfully not a foodie destination. Routine beer range, with attractively served Landlord in peak condition. Despite what it says on its website it seems to be open all day and is a far pleasanter choice than the Wharf along the road.

Having tried and failed at the nearby carpenters arms, lower boddington, we get a completely different experience.

Welcomed in, sat down, offered table service and a full an interesting menu.

Three real ales on - two from Jennings and one local brew "Fenny Pride" - which, if I heard correctly from the barman, was actually a Ringwood rebrand.

Beer OK but the food was exceptional. Best meals out we have had in a long, long time. Very good prices too.

A great pub - especially for diners. I would travel a distance to get here.

Excellent village inn very much as described in previous review. Good beer, nice atmosphere and a warn welcome. Spotting us waiting outside, they even opened a few minutes early to let us in!
