Pubman, our visit was at lunch time. Mrs P was going to have the ham, egg and chips. I was going to have the gammon, which was shown on the menu as being accompanied with skinny fries. I asked the chap behind the bar if I could have chips instead of the skinny fries, and were the chips with skin on or off. He said the substitution could be made and the chips had the skin off.

We went to find a table, then I returned to the bar to order, by which time the chips had changed from skin off to skin on, so we left. I was not offered 'proper' chips, single, double or triple cooked. If 'proper' chips are available, you need to tell your staff. They weren't offered and weren't shown on the menu.

It must be impossible for any establishment to cater for all of our foibles.
Paladine gives a spot on example (we all have such foibles) of the difficulties pubs / eateries must have. I prefer skin on chips. Pubman has to either cover every base or guess whether it is Paladine or I turning up for lunch!
I went to the Lion a couple of times last weekend. I will not give any details or review other than that it is certainly a work in progress... but seems to be getting there. I at least, was not disappointed with my visits. (Maybe because my meal did not include chips of any ilk! ??)
I agree with Paladine and others that people should check places personally and make up their own minds.

Perhaps someone could turn up for breakfast and post about the experience (i wont say review) as Lion advertised they were starting offering breafast again from this morning onwards. Hope their meat deliveries/tests/staff are now sorted for them in the mornings

Im afraid i wont be going again to Lion (for breakfast), although i did go for breafast at 9.30 yesterday at Ship Inn off South Walsham broad and was wonderful.
