Paid a return visit to the Lion. This time it was open, but very quiet - probably because of the strange opening times. Doom Bar was the only ale. There's a small drinking area at the front of the pub overlooking the busy A road and another enclosed patio area at the rear. The place doubles as a hotel. But nobody was at the reception desk. At least it was open this time. But I wasn't overly impressed.

I was amazed to find this pub was closing at 5pm on a Bank Holiday Monday. We followed another family in and whilst they were served, we were told that they were closed. I guess you have to be in the know. The barman/landlord said he was locking up. But after visiting the Lion and returning past the Bell, there were still people drinking outside the front. Very strange opening times and discrimination against non-locals means I have to give this a 0/10, as a beerintheevening is not possible unless you are 'in the know'.

Had lunch in here while en route to the nearby waddeson manor (which was superb by the way). Had a delicous pint of breakspear, and gf wine was tasty. However, unless youre on a diet dont bother with the food. Had the smallest piece of fish I have ever seen, and since when did it become necessary to serve chips and mushy peas in small ramekins rather than just splodged on the side? Only reason is to give you less for your ten quid. Disappointing! Landlady waited until wed left before clearing the plates as I think she may have overheard my thoughts to gf.

Beers good condition but expensive - Doombar and Brakspears but couldn't agree more about landlord - not interested in customers!
