Came here for a family birthday on a Sunday. We all had roasts. All very nice, only complaint was that the vegetables in a shared bowl were very hard. Friendly helpful staff.

Friendly traditional pub atmosphere. We were a party of eight adults. Staff were efficient and helpful. We chose to switch from our original (near the loo) pub area dining to the main restaurant, in fact the conservatory. The food was well presented but generally overcooked and reheated. The sort of standard accepted 20 years ago. This could be a great... More

My sister and I have just returned from the Lion and lamb after I had recommended it to her after a previous delicious meal here. I have never ever left a review on trip advisor but felt obliged to do so. We had booked a table for 2 and when we arrived we informed the male bartender who stared at... More

The 2nd visit at the space but no opportunity to see alive karaoke or animation. Nice pub with nice food. Good beef steak. Nice for a great afternoon in the British winter period, with the lads drinking a delicious pint <Guinness> my preference.

It was a cold November Sunday, I was poorly and the other half was hungover, we both fancied a pub lunch. The Lion & Lamb is close to home and we didn't need a booking (we sat in the bar area). The menu is extensive and there's a good range of dishes to suit everyone. I had Bangers and Mash... More

Came across this pub by chance when out working and looking for some lunch. Friendly welcome and quick service. The food was really good - ham, egg and chips - nothing fancy but good portions and really tasty. My colleague had the steak pie and was equally pleased.

Very good for a supper and drink. Do smaller meals for great value too. The general meals are very generous. Staff pleasant. Nice pub grub.

As ever starting with the good points, plenty of parking and there was a bouncy castle for the kids. However, I think we must have come on a bad day, the place was only half full but despite booking in advance we waited nearly an hour and a half to get starters (after having to chase the staff to take...

My partner and I visited this pub for the first time and it will defiantely be the last. We both decided to have the roast beef but regretted it as soon as it was placed in front of us. The the beef and veg were ok but the potatoes were as hard as rocks! I cut into one and the... More
