Bar menu
Open all year

This traditional country dining pub occupies an enviable spot in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The spacious restaurant is decorated in a modern, comfortable style and the bar has low-beamed ceilings and a wood-burner. The reasonably priced food here is sourced locally and the menu changes with the seasons. Start with twice-baked goats’ cheese soufflé, perhaps, before a main course of oven-roasted rump of new season lamb with pearl barley risotto and salsa verde. The Lion has a walled beer garden for alfresco eating and drinking in the summer.
