Recall decent atmosphere, and the bar staff were nice. One of the pubs were other strangers seemed to mingle rather than be on their phones all the time. A rare find.GOOGLE REVIEW

I booked the Blue Lion for my 30th birthday and had an absolutely fabulous night, the staff were wonderful and took really good care of us. The food was wonderful and all the guests were raving about it. Cheryl was so helpful with organising it all, she took all the stress away. I would definitely recommend the Blue Lion as a venue.GOOGLE REVIEW

We hired the Blue Lion for our wedding reception and we could not more highly recommend it. Everything we asked for was in place and the whole evening ran smoothly and like clockwork. Many of our guests commented on what a wonderful location it was. The thing we loved is that we were able to really make it feel like ‘our space’ for the evening, we were able to decorate it how we wanted and Cheryl (the landlady) was so accommodating in meeting with us and addressing our requests. The food was lovely and we were bowled over by how helpful and welcoming the staff were on the night. If you are looking to hire a pub for an event and you want character, a feeling of warmth and space then this is the place for you. We especially loved the layout of the pub, we had 85 guests and everyone was able to sit down, have their own area in the various nooks but there was still plenty of space to dance and move around. We had the most perfect of days and the Blue Lion was a huge part of this.GOOGLE REVIEW

I hired The Blue Lion for a combination of my birthday and a surprise party for my partner (50+ people). There is absolutely nothing that I would have changed in choosing The Blue Lion. Cheryl, the owner is flexible, accommodating, responsive and understanding. The staff who served us were friendly and did a great job. I ordered the rustic buffet which was mounds of cheese, large baguettes, meats and condiments ( I wanted something for my guests to nibble on as we were there from 7pm-1am), and the food was abundant, tasty and perfect for what I wanted. They also supplied me with some plates and napkins for a cake that my friend had brought (this had been discussed in advance). I was able to have my own playlist and decorate the way that I wanted. Many of my guests commented on the size and layout of the venue (in a positive way), and the pool table was well used. I saw half a dozen places before I chose The Blue Lion and I could not be happier that I did.GOOGLE REVIEW

The customer service that I received was excellent. I felt badly because I was unable to finish the pie that I had ordered for my pudding, so my apologies to the chef who probably worked hard to make it. The place was very clean and the woman who served me this afternoon was exceptionally friendly. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to enjoy a meal at lunchtime in a lovely, friendly environment.GOOGLE REVIEW
