Obviously this place used to be my favourite pub in Romford. However since John had gone and they have painted it to look like a cross between a battleship and a pie and mash shop. I don't like it. However I was in the Lamb...More

The golden lion is a beautiful old pub situated in the centre of romford. The history of this place is pouring out of the walls and ceiling. If it could talk, 'Le Lion' could tell some spell-binding stories dating back nearly six hundred years. It was a stop off point for Royalty on the road to Colchester, Sir Francis Bacon drank there and may have penned a theory or two. (referenec from beer in the evening) The golden lion is a traditional good old pub serving great food, a variety of ales (10 pumps, varies) and many other premium lagers and drinks. The pub has 3 tv's inside (downstairs) 1 Outside in the patio garden and a big screen upstairs to watch all your major sporting events. The pub also consists of a very large private function room upstairs which room hire only costs £50. It holds up to 100 people and has private bar, toilets and exit to the patio garden or main bar dowstairs.
