Visited again today and once again an enjoyable meal and certainly not a small portion. Our meals were well presented with a good selection of vegtables. The staff were nice and friendly.We really need to go back and try more of the dishes on the menu.

This pub/restaurant was chosen as it was accessible. The printed menus offer a good variety of meals. For people who can't or don't want a large portion there are some, meals for people with a smaller appetite. The specials boards for all three courses also have a good range of dishes. We'd reserved a table, especially as we had an... More

Been numerous times and never disappointed with the food. Usually for lunch. Functional and food biased. Must try it later at night and see how it stacks up as a local

I met some friends for a coffee and chat one morning and was quite surprised at how comfortable it is. Quite enjoyed the chat, the coffee and cake.

Group of 5, for early evening meal and the options on the menu covered wasn't a massive list but effective, everyone chose something quite easy and the quality that was served was well worth the money. Big selection of drinks from the bar.

Visited, with friends, for lunch. There is a good choice on the menu which is supplemented by a 'specials' board. One person ordered a gammon steak, one calfs liver, another a salmon salad, and the fourth chicken and prawns. All agreed the food had an excellent taste, and the portion sizes good. The one downside was that service was quite... More

In town for a quick visit and had breakfast here on a Sunday in a party of 6 and it was absolutely spot on.

Description
The Golden Lion has the largest thatched roof in the north of England with working open coal fires and bespoke oak furniture. We pride ourselves with friendly staff and fresh food cooked on site by our talented chefs, no ready made meals here! Independantly owned by a family from the town we are a freehold business stocking real ale, an extensive single malt collection and fine wines as well as your usual draught products. We are open from 9am Monday to Saturday serving breakfast, lunch and dinner then from 9am Sundays serving breakfast till 11.30am and our traditional roasts 12 til 6pm. (Some might say we serve the best coffee in the town, or even the north east!)The current climate hasn't seemed to effect us as we are getting busier week by week from opening in 2005. It is great to see new and old faces each day! In 2014 we opened The Lion's Den on the first floor, our stylish wedding and event venue. Speak to our event coordinators for more details!
