Sitting pretty as a picture in the centre of the village of Magor, The Golden Lion takes pride in ensuring that each dish leaving its kitchen has plenty of aesthetic allure - and tastes absolutely delicious, of course. Only a short detour from the M4, The Golden Lion should be taken advantage of by those on the move, as well as by those who live in the locale.

The kitchen team understands the importance of starting with the best raw ingredients to ensure the final product is everything it should be. With produce carefully gathered from nearby farms and businesses, the menu is put together according to the seasons and with simplicity at the fore. The chefs add their own flourishes to keep things exciting. On the current menu, starters include grilled Cornish sardines stuffed with garlic butter, on toasted ciabatta, and more hearty options such as potato gnocchi with sundried tomato and fresh basil pesto, finished with a liberal sprinkling of Parmesan shavings. For main courses, the selection of pub classics holds plenty of appeal, including unique versions of favourites like local gammon with chips, peas and egg, and wonderful homemade pies that warm the cockles. Maple-syrup-glazed belly of pork with cinnamon potato croquet and apple cider purée is a dish that hints at the creativity of the minds at work behind the stove.

When Sunday rolls around, forget the pots and pans and let somebody else do all the hard work. After a starter of authentic French onion soup, tuck into a plate of sirloin of beef with fluffy Yorkshire puddings and creamy horseradish sauce, plus all the trimmings. There's also an early bird menu, available Monday to Thursday from midday until 2.30pm and 6pm until 7pm, offering two courses for £10.95 or three for £14.95.

There's a lovely Mediterranean-style terrace and garden that's a great setting for a spot of alfresco dining or sharing a bottle of fine wine with a loved one. Monthly talent nights, cosy corners with log burners, daily coffee mornings and a sports bar finish my list of reasons to visit this wonderful village pub - but I'm sure you'll find many more
