About the Pub

Set in what is now a des-res village but was once historically a very important town, the Lion offers good all-round hospitality. Built in the late 16th Century but actually completed in 1580, it was originally a coaching inn, brew house and pig farm. Many of the original features of the brewing cellar still remain, as do a number of outhouses that were used as pig sty's. A split level pub with a dining room on the left and cosy bar on the right, it boasts two real fires and, naturally, a collection of model lions. In addition to the standard pub fayre, the menu boasts some unusual dishes. The pubs holds beer festivals in June and November plus a cider festival in August. One of the guest ales is usually Wye Valley Butty Bach. Open mike sessions on 1st and 3rd Mondays. Visit before or after exploring the three standing stones (hence the name), healing well, castle mound and ancient church. Note the pub may close during midweek Winter afternoons.
