In the gorgeous rural village of Westbury-on-Severn, just seven miles from Gloucester, lies The Lyon Inn. This local gem was opened this year by dedicated husband-and-wife team Chris and Sue, and it draws in crowds of locals and visitors alike. Just a few minutes’ drive from the famous Forest of Dean and close to stunning river and countryside walks, The Lyon Inn is ideally located for ramblers. Dogs are welcome in the bar too, so why not stop by for a post-walk pint? The chef at The Lyon focuses on serving good, honest food, prioritising the use of locally sourced produce – from the coffee to the lamb, everything is sourced from the surrounding area. Highlights of the varied menu include the hearty 60-day-aged fillet steak, tasty halloumi burger and fresh prawn and avocado salad, while the extensive wine list and ale selection provide a variety of great pairing options.
