Fine Ale - Great food
Ye Golden lLion has been the finest food/ale venue in Wellingborough ever since Eric took over some three years ago. Given prior warning he can provide any meal you may desire and does so with a style and humour which puts many other landlords to shame. Long may he reign!

Lovely looking outside - Awful awful food.
Monday 30th August 2010 (Bank Hol)
We stopped thinking we'd get a good hearty quality pub lunch but oh dear oh dear oh dear - what we got was overpriced rubbish.

We both went for cheeseburgers and they tasted like they were from a bad funfair burger van with undercooked oven chips and peas. How can you do such a simple pub meal so so badly? We ate a little and left. Neither of us had the energy to complain as we were on our way back from a weekend away.
The barmaid was friendly enough and the food clearly wasn't her fault.
One of the worst meals ever.

Eric on form again
Sorry it has taken so long to update on our meal - it was fantastic as usual.

He also laid on great bar snacks (mini beef wellingtons anyone?) for Pete's visit last Sunday.

well looked after beer
This is not only one of the few remaing real pubs remaining open in the area, but the quality of the ale and food on offer is outstanding. There is a real local atmosphere and Eric the landlord and his staff do their level best to please all the time

Mrs Pashler must have gone to a different pub!!
Eric's food is wonderful - I have never had a bad meal and I have been eating there since he took over in April 2009.

I am looking forward to the meal he is cooking for us tomorrow.

Mrs Pashler
Yesterday we come here for a meal, but oh dear, the meal was so poor it was not its money worth. the food was bland. Who ever done the meal ought to go training on how to cook.

Any chance to have my money back?

Born in Golden Lion
How many other people can say they were born in the Golden Lion? I was in 1940 when my parents were licensees/landlord. All around bombs dropped but we survived.

Gone to the dogs
The once great family/locals pub has been run into the ground by the new tenants.
Everything is overpriced(1 for crisps,ha!) food when the landlady can be bothered or capable.But there is some good news. They are leaving(before the 1 year probation) and it will hopefully return to normal. A friendly pub with good beer and decent bar meals at reasonable prices.

Terrible Staff
The landlady refused to change two pints if vinergary old speckled hen. She said it was a fruit beer and smelt like that. She said we could have another drink but that she was not paying for it.
