Steeped in history, The Lion dates back about 500 years, and was built when King Charles I was on the British throne and even before the famous Gunpowder Plot of 1605. Originally constructed as a house, for centuries the quirky building has been welcoming visitors as a traditional British pub. With its low ceilings, exposed beams and homely inglenook fireplaces, it has all the charm of what you expect from a historic pub and restaurant. Listed as one of the Britain’s most important buildings, this is a slice of history set right in the heart of the Somerset countryside in a popular English village. The characterful and homely rooms offer a comfortable stay for those wanting to holiday or spend a night or two in this stunning part of the UK.

We’re also dog lovers, so your well behaved pooches will get a warm welcome.

    Mushroom starter was very good. My wife had the satay chicken breast with noodles and found it rather salty. My confit duck leg was good I think we would try it again when the new menu comes into place

    The place was nice and so were the staff, but unfortunately the food was not great and i was pretty disappointed, The roast potatoes were dry, the yorkshire pudding was burnt and the veg was pretty non-existent. As the food really is the most important factor my overall experience was bad,

    The Lion at PennardReageerde 6 dagen geledenHi RebeccaM, Thanks for taking the time to review your experience with us although unfortunate that you chose to give us such a poor review and not mention anything at the time, or gave us the chance to rectify the situation. By the looks of your clear plates when you left it seemed that you enjoyed your meal. Glad you still chose to return later for a drink with us and you weren't put off completely.

    First ever visit and we weren't disappointed. A gorgeous country pub with Somerset charm. The interior was traditional (but not old fashioned) with dried hops prettily draped across the ceiling beam. The dark green walls and white candles lit on every table made for a beautiful ambience. We wished the window we were seated by had been closed from the start as the summer wasps plagued us at times - but this was hardly the pub's fault. Staff were friendly and attentive. Food arrived quickly (although we were first to arrive and first to order). My husband thought the pork was outstanding and was pleased he took up the extra meat option for a larger portion. I had chicken supreme. We both had an additional side of cauliflower cheese (a generous bowl, could've shared in hindsight). This was a proper hearty Sunday roast. Our meals were hot, fresh and delicious. Apple sauce with pork, and stuffing with chicken would have perfected it- where were they? But we clearly didn't miss these accompaniments at the time, only on later reflection. We couldn't afford to eat here regularly but it was my 50th birthday weekend and I felt it was worth every penny. In fact, we both wished this pub was our local (we live 15 miles away). Two roasts, one with extra meat, two sides, two pints of soft drink and one red wine and a 12% tip totalled £67.51. Thanks for a great experience.

    The Lion at PennardReageerde 6 dagen geledenHi SarahC, Thanks for the great review, and it was wonderful to welcome you on such a special weekend, and so glad you loved the food. Although stuffing isn't available, we do offer any condiments including homemade apple sauce to go with the pork. We don't automatically add this onto your dish as we know it's not to everybody's taste. 15 miles isn't too far to come, follow us on social media to see the special offer we will be promoting from tomorrow!

    A disappointing visit, for my wife's birthday lunch with daughter and family. As a pescatarian the only fish dish was off, the only starter which was to her fancy was off and so she ordered the only vegetarian meal, a beetroot salad. This was mainly salad with a few nuts and pomegranate pieces scattered over plus a few cubes of beetroot. It was what we would serve as a side salad and charged at £18. My daughter's vegetarian burger was strange-tasting burger in a white tasteless bun. Whilst other dishes were reasonable it was a fairly expensive pub lunch and overall a big disappointment.

    The Lion at PennardGereageerd op 2 augustus 2022Hi PeterL, Thanks for taking the time to review your recent visit. Our menu is small and we cannot guarantee all meals are available all of the time due to suppliers issues. From our six starters, 4 of these are vegetarian, or pescatarian. On the day you dined, we hadn't had our fish delivery as of yet, but there are two vegetarian choices on the menu. None of the above was brought to my attention when you paid your bill with me, or when asked how everything was, we could have sorted it.

    The menu was fine with something for everyone. It was to a very high standard and the sauces were awesome and worthy of praise in themselves. The service was excellent and the delivery and presentation of the food was a credit to the both the chef and the staff. We will be going back again soon.

    This was our third visit to The Lion with friends, but on this occasion it was disappointing. Despite booking a table for 7pm one of the starters was already unavailable. That, along with our first choice of wine being out of stock, was not a good start. We were also sat on a wobbly table with two of us sat on a very uncomfortable wooden bench, which in itself was a bit of a hazard. However, the food was good, probably not, I would say, as good as our previous visits, but we won’t rule out visiting again.

    The Lion at PennardGereageerd op 26 juli 2022Hi Padge, Thanks for taking the time to review your recent meal with us, I'm sorry you left feeling a little disappointed. As everything is made in house we do sell out of things from time to time. We had an extremely busy lunch time which meant that we sold more than we would normally of your chosen starter. We also have had some issues getting hold of some of wine from our wine merchant. I'm glad it's not put you off making a return visit, and I look forward to seeing you back soon!

    Went for lunch with a friend, we each had the Ploughman’s Lunch, which was very fresh and tasty! Delicious Fig Chutney, delicious cheese and a chicken and chorizo tureen My friend is vegetarian and that wasn’t a problem, they replaced the chicken with a piece of Brie which she enjoyed very much We shared a bowl of triple cooked chips, which were also very good

    The vegetables in my meal were bullet hard. A smaller variety properly cooked would have been better. My friend told the server that she is allergic to peas and was told very frostily that they were in the kitchen so cross contamination couldn’t be ruled out. Then they served her mange tout……….oh dear

    It’s the second disappointing meal I’ve had in a row there, I had the softshell crab in a bun with chips, it was pretty awful, I was expecting something a lot more tasty and certainly better value for my £17. It’s also a real shame that a pub that offers food doesn’t have some more traditional pub food, I do realise it’s trying to be a Gastro pub however it is rather lacking in variety in its menu and it definitely is trying too hard. Perhaps it’s time to get back to the basics and serve good tasty value for money food and maybe put war adventurous food on the specials. However I will say that the pub is decorated really nicely and the service is good. I have noticed that the last two times I’ve tried to get friends along there they have all said the same thing about the poor food. It’s a real shame as I think the pub has got huge potential but it really needs to up its game on its food.

    This was our first visit to The Lion, besides visits here in the past to play pool…but it has totally changed now. Different layout and redecorated, it is now a pub focused on food. We found the decor quite dark, mostly painted dark green, felt like it needed lightning up a bit. We had 3 courses, we felt the starters were pricey for the portion size but what we had was of good quality. There were only 2 vegetarian options for main courses, one of which was a superfood salad, so not much choice at all for a non meat/fish eater. No pasta dishes either. I found myself reading the options and thinking, that sounds nice and then there being 1 or 2 items that put me off. E.g Goats cheese mash. I would have choose the dish if it was normal mash, I guess I could have asked if that was possible. I had the BBQ Ribs for a main course, they were nice but the plate was crammed and I found it tricky to manoeuvre around the plate. Desserts were a good size but the option of some cream to go with chocolate torte would have been nice but to be fair we could and should have asked. I’m sure they could soon have given us some. We just didn’t like to ask as it was fairly busy. Service was good and we didn’t wait too long at all between courses. Personally we wouldn’t rush back but it’s good to and try and someone with different tastes might really love it.

    Beautiful pub, tastefully modernised, staff very efficient but not very friendly or warm. A few smiles would have been nice! Vegetarian roast option looked great but not very tasty. Cauliflower cheese a real disappointment and roast potatoes hard and unappetising!

    A genuinely interesting, but unpretentious, menu for all three courses, and a good selection of quality wines by the glass. Food was beautifully cooked, and ingredients, such as the rump of lamb, were top-notch. Staff were friendly and helpful. Given the overall quality of the dining experience, the prices were very reasonable. This was our second night running at the Lion, and we would have gone again if they had been open for dinner on Sunday... Highly recommended.

    Great service and lovely atmospheres however the menu was very mediocre. The choice of main dishes was very overpriced having three choices at least with milk buns and burger bread rolls. We had a lovely meal there back in February but this meal was a disappointment.
