Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Lion Hotel

Vintage Inn in a prime spot right by the River Darent, but with the coronavirus restrictions I was very surprised to see the beer garden out of use which just left the patio terrace and a limited number of socially distanced indoor tables. Managing to get one of the latter, I was pleased to find that the refurbished, multi-room, slightly split-level interior retains a reasonable amount of character. Beer-wise, just London Pride (£4.40) from the four handpumps, but that proved a refreshing pint.

Ian Mapp left this review about The Lion Hotel

Simply couldn't walk past this location. Picture postcard perfect.

Cask Marque accredited with one Real Ale - you've guessed it, Doom Bar.

Decent condition and £3.65 not outrageous for the setting.
