Located along the Winchcombe way, The Lion Inn is a popular country pub where ramblers and their four-legged friends can rest their feet. Boasting eight charming en-suite bedrooms, The Lion Inn is a welcome haven to all and even offers a private dining clubroom suitable for up to 20 guests. The pretty, lavender-scented garden is perfect for a leisurely drink in the early evening sun. Guests are able to choose from a sophisticated drinks menu, which ranges from local ale, gin and whiskies to fruity cocktails and a vast wine list.
Cosy yet contemporary, the restaurant has a lively atmosphere enhanced by flagstone floors, twinkling lights and mirrored windows. Diners are treated to AA-rosette-awarded fare, which makes the most of seasonal, local produce – customers are even encouraged to donate homegrown fruit and vegetables in return for a free drink.
To start, the heritage tomato and goat’s curd tortellini was a zingy appetiser and the hearty onion soup was deliciously creamy and moreish. The Angus beefburger was cooked to perfection and made the perfect pub meal when paired with the chef’s homemade barbecue sauce, and the corn-fed chicken breast salad with avocado, anchovies and bacon dressing was succulent and balanced. We savoured our desserts of rich chocolate torte and sweet Eton Mess. The Lion Inn is a firm favourite for all the family.
