About the hotel
The Lion Inn Public House The Lion Inn offers diners a unique eating and drinking experience as well as hotel facilities and a new style to rival many. The Lion has been a traditional pub for many centuries and has undergone a chic yet sympathetic transformation into a bistro pub extraordinaire. Situated a mere ½ mile from the A12, the new Lion Inn provides a different dining and staying experience.
Bar A pub with, dare we say it – Je ne sais quoi! Stylishly decorated with antiques and salvaged furniture, The Lion Public House is an eclectic mix. The bar is pure French theatre – black bar top adorned by tall chrome taps dispensing a good selection of real ales as well as lager and great quality wine on draught. Eatery A natural extension to the bar area, The Restaurant maintains an elegant mix of old and new. We have recently replaced our decking area with a stylish Victorian inspired conservatory so you can enjoy the views no matter what the weather. Rooms Deluxe It’s all in the name! Big comfortable bed, crisp white linen and fully equipped ensuite are just a few of life’s little necessities away from home. We haven’t forgotten to add a flat screen TV, complimentary internet access with space to work as well as air conditioning you control! If you're looking for more than the usual hotel, eatery or meeting venue, then you may have just found it.

Not the usual high standard.
My husband & I chose The lion as our anniversary present to ourselves.
This has always been a favourite place to eat & stay. Sadly not this time. I ordered the calamari & as I cut into one it was joined by a long red hair to another!. It made me feel quite sick. The waitress apologised & offers me another. I said no thank you. I didn't enjoy the rest of our meal as we were cautious as we took each mouthful. There was no deduction on the bill.
On check out, we waited for 15 minutes for someone to come to the desk. Very unprofessional. We were really disappointed by this visit. The usual high standard that we have always loved had well & truly slipped.
Comfortable and Welcoming
I received a friendly welcome on check-in and was shown to my room.
The quality of the room and bathroom was excellent. I enjoyed dinner in the busy restaurant, the service and quality of the food was very good and great value for money. Breakfast was also excellent with a good buffet selection and cooked items on request.
