If you want to wait an hour between courses and chase for your food then this is the place to go

Went for a family meal 2 and 1/2 hours for a 2 course meal.

Steak pie - little to no meat.

Roast dinner was the best point.

Deserts - completely nuked and inedible.

One of deserts we asked for chocolate sauce, had to ask again and were told in an abrupt manner it was coming - by the time it came the desert was half eaten and when it came it was greasy and unsuitable.

We had been before and food was good but we will not be back again given how appalling the service was, the standard of the food on this occasion and the attitude of the staff.

It was a welcome return to the Lion & Lamb after a few years, I was so pleased to find the Roast Rib of Beef still on the menu & still cooked Rare!! The thick sliced juicy piece of meat arrived on my plate & it was everything I remembered, The potatoes where crispy & full of flavour, the vegetables had that crunch I love & the gravy was just the right thickness to coat the meat & all this topped with a golden Yorkshire!! All I can hope is they can keep this level of food up for my next visit which hopefully wont be another couple of years away!! Bravo Mike & his team keep up the great work!!!!

Dined here on Sunday, had a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon. Roast beef was beautiful, service was excellent and a good selection of ales for my husband! Would recommend to friends.

Six of us went for Dinner the menu is confusing with a surcharge per person depending which menu you order from and where you sit.
The Yorkshire pudding was burnt, the roast potatoes were overcooked and the veg was barely warm. The beef, turkey and steak pie were good but let down by the rest
overpriced and disappointing.
