Visited with family for a birthday Sunday lunch. I have been before and as with previous reviews was more than satisfied with the quality of food and the service. This was a visit paid for by a voucher given to me at Xmas. I still feel it a little expensive for what it is, and that's why I only give... More

Oliver, thank you for taking the time to complete a review on TripAdvisor. Unfortunately as a privately owned business, we don't reap the benefits of mass buying power and this means that our costs are higher to provide you with the quality of food we produce. We do hope you return to us soon, maybe you will receive some more... More

We had arranged a school reunion to celebrate our 65th years having all started at Dunsmore Boys School, Rugby in 1962, having been there five years ago. This family run hotel could not have been more helpful. As with all such things our numbers were flexible right up to the day and they were happy to adjust the menu and... More

We came here as a group of six of us for Sunday Lunch. When you first arrive it looks great and there's a lovely smell of the food cooking. Once we sat at our tables I looked at the menu and there's not a great choice for a Sunday lunch time, a choice of 4 starters and 3 mains or... More

Stayed here over night whilst visiting Newbold Revel. Lovely hotel in a lovely scenic area. Room ok, very dated. Bed was lovely and comfortable and we both slept well. We ate in the restaurant and food was to a very high standard, drinks were very pricey!

EllyRat, Guest Relations Manager at Golden Lion Hotel & Inn, responded to this review

We are pleased to read you had a comfortable stay and you enjoyed your dinner. As a family owned hotel, we do not benefit from the buying power of chain pubs and restaurants and unfortunately this results in our drink prices being higher. More

Once again we enjoyed a fantastic meal at the Golden Lion. The food was perfect and the hospitality was absolutely fabulous. I don't know why it took us so long to have a meal there but it is definitely my new favourite local restaurant. Will be back as often I can find a good excuse.

Stopped for lunch with grand daughter. Inn was very (well behaved) child friendly. Staff efficient and food delivered promptly and to a high standard. One small complaint dealt with with a smile and grand daughter treated to a pudding. Will try again for dinner with friends.
