Built in 1580 as a brewhouse and inn by a former sea captain, the Lion consists of two rooms, both with open fires; one is a traditional bar, the other a restaurant. In the bar you’ll find Wye Valley Butty Bach and Felinfoel Double Dragon, and a number of local ciders including Raglan Cider Mill Snowy Owl. In the restaurant there are bar snacks, baguettes, ploughman’s, light meals and a range of main dishes, typically home-made lasagne; locally sourced faggots; and wild mushroom, brie and cranberry Wellington. There are beautiful views from the suntrap courtyard, and look out for the beer festival in June and the cider festival in August.
