user reviews of the Golden Lion, Northam

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

A few weeks ago, I went to the re-opening of this pub. A 'bit of a do' advertised and put on for the big occasion. I'd never been inside before and won't again. Shame is, it should be a good old traditional boozer as it hasn't really been altered that much since god knows when. Real old pub charm. Big central open bar, cosy room and side street location. Trouble is, the bar staff / new owners were totally out of their depth and could not cope with the sudden surge of curious new customers attracted by the advertised free buffet and live entertainment,and so they served the familiar faces first and ignored everybody else.The beer. when you could get some, was awful. Just the usual vile slection of lagers with the added attraction of flat, boxed 'real ale' that was anything but. Can only wish them luck and hope that it improves but will probably go on appealing to the local chav element who wouldn't know a good pub from one like this.You're much better off at the Kinglsey, at least until the imminent departure of the current licensee anyway.

Been done up a bit recently - a lot of the formica has gone. Is that a good thing or a bad thing?

Sad to see the old butcher's shop next door has closed, too.

Known locally as "The formica pub". I've had a couple of lost afternoons in here. Also has a skittle alley. Pretty basic, but a warm welcome awaits you.
