We visited the Lion over the August bank holiday and we quite disappointed with the food, we ordered the mushroom soup of the day, this turned into vegetable soup (with apologies and we won't be charging you for the soup) but frankly it looked like a baby food, brown and kinda mushy.
There were two roast dinners available hog roast and beef, fish & chips, burger & chips plus a veggie burger, there was five in our party three had the  burger which was ok and the other 2 people had the two different dinners neither was happy about the food the amount of peas was really huge but one 1" thin carrot cut into 4 quarters roast spuds but no real veg other than peas. they knocked something off the bill as a whole.
The service was excellent, very disappointed with the food, wasn't planning on saying anything on the forum but felt that I should balance it up after the last entry

Called in at the Lion on Sunday all six of us plus the dog and what great service we received along with a very nice Sunday roast dinner.
First Class and well done to the staff very friendly and made the children very welcome, looks like some repairs have been carried out to the old mooring as there are a number of new plans been put in but could not spot any mooring rings at the moment.
"well Done The Lion will be back again very soon"
Many thnaks from all our crew Smile

Kindest Regards Mike

We were unlucky with our visit back end of July. We wandered in around 7.30 - 8pm to be told that there was no food because they had been so busy during the day that the Chef was fed up and slung his hook! Bit careless to lose chefs and it left us with a less than positive impression of the pub and grumbling, starving  stomachs!.

We visited the Lion on Friday 15th September, that was a group of 37 Of us as. This was after spending our worst week on the Northern Broads that anyone could remember.
The food was excellent, the service great and the ambience was superb. This event was our final dinner and prize presentation. It was a great night and we look forward to next year.
Forgot to ask who was it I said hello to at Ludham Bridge and said I was Pitdiver. Whoever it was nice to see you.

best wishes
PD

The Lion is our local so we were thrilled about the new management and the refurb.

I think they had a few teething problems this first season but we ate there this week and they are running a tight ship and the menu is spot on. The beer offering is, and always has been great.

I’d recommend it to anyone.

And the mooring on the Potter side is free.

For any Fosters / Carling / Carlsberg drinkers, you wont find any here. Instead go for Spitfire Lager its as good as. Great atmosphere when we visited. Saw Evening with Bob band. Brilliant !

Its not the destination its the journey that matters

So Rads if someone doesn't drink what you do it has to be rubbish does it?
I brew beer from grain and bitters are very easy to brew. Ask any home brewers how their lager went though and its a different story. Constant low fermenting temperature is only one of the special conditions lagers need.
The White Horse sell quite a few keg beers (non real ale) Its called choice

We have visited the Lion and the White Horse recently and neither one of them had a Chicken dish on the Menu, is there a shortage of chickens in and around the Broads area as the Wroxham hotel was the same when we visited it not long ago? also  I found it strange that at the White horse i had to order potatoes with the steak and ale pies as they did not come with it and the crust was less than 1/8" thick!!!! Not Impressed  Frown


I read somewhere that
drinking was
bad for you, so I have
given up Reading.
