Enjoyed a great lunch in the relaxed atmosphere of the lion's dining room. Service was good, with the waitress giving us plenty of time to chose our meal. The food was good and the prices reasonable. Well worth a visit.

I share the comments of the previous contributor. We called in for a drink after a morning of house hunting in Waddesdon. As we were quite thirsty I was looking forward to the refreshment and a seat in the sunshine. At the bar were a group of Bicester Hockey Club players and there was a wedding party in the corner....

WMy wife & I visited Waddesdon, we usually visit the manor and have lunch at The Five Arrows. Today we wanted to visit the area and we finished up at The Lion. We had sausage and mash, which although rather salty was enjoyable. However it all fell apart thereafter because it appeared there was only one lady looking after both...

This is more a good pub with accommodation rather than an hotel. I was not staying the night but on a wet and windy day we found the bar of The Lion to be quiet, hospitable and comfortable. A quick look at the bar menu and we decided on soup of the day which happened to be french onion, but...

After a Tour of Waddesdon Manor, my wife and I stayed in Room number 1 at this hotel. While the Lion is an old pub/hotel, we felt that the standard of the room we booked did not warrant the £90 price tag. While we had a bathroom door that didn't close and very steep approaching stairs, the main problem was...

I liked this place in the pretty village of waddesdon. There is parking at the front and there is a larger car park through a 10 foot canopy. The room was nice with a good bed and a good shower but the TV was a bit small for the room.i had fish and chips on my visit but I was...

The Lion caters for wedding parties regularly, given that there are a number of local wedding venues and it is located conveniently on the A413 close to Aylesbury. We took all 10 rooms for 2 nights and they kindly organised a private buffet for us on the first night; the buffet was excellent in terms of both variety and quality....

Recently attended a wedding at Waddesdon Manor and required accommodation for two nights. Arrived at 3pm to check in on the Friday - wedding on the Saturday. Rooms were of 'average' condition but fulfilled all our needs. Tea, coffee , ironing facilities, Wi-Fi, tv - bed, shower and toilet!!!! Breakfast was of decent standard - however 08:30 - 09:30 only!!...

I am not a prolific reviewer but I do feel strongly enough to leave a review on this inn/hotel. This Inn/Hotel is NOT worth £90 for a double room, it over charges on the back of a wedding at Waddesdon Hall (Monday Night). To access the room at night you have to climb a fire escape and unlock the door,...
