Set in the gorgeous Kent countryside, in the pretty village of Broad Oak, is The Golden Lion. Owner and chef Colin Robson used to visit the pub with his parents as a child, and when it became available last year he jumped at the chance to put it on the map as the place to go for quality food and friendly service.

My companion and I chose from the specials menu, chalked up in the cosy bar area. I opted for the chicken breast stuffed with Jarlsberg cheese and wrapped in bacon which was succulent and tasty; my friend's sea bass with chilli and ginger served with celeriac mash was cooked beautifully with just a hint of chilli and ginger lending the dish an exotic twist. To finish, we decided on a sticky toffee pudding and a chocolate puddle pudding accompanied by plum and Armagnac ice cream - both were delectable desserts and just the thing to round off the meal before heading back out into the cold winter air. Colin and Amanda aim to cater for everyone and will strive to accommodate any dietary requirements - just ask when you order.

The Golden Lion also caters for events, including weddings, and the pub has its own marquee and garden area. Head to The Golden Lion for mouth-watering homemade food in wonderfully relaxed, friendly surroundings - you won't regret it.
