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 venison and pork Scotch egg, perhaps, before a main course of pan-fried monkfish cheeks with spiced bean cassoulet. The Lion has a walled beer garden for alfresco eating and drinking in the summer.
