    Unfortunately due to the historic nature of The Golden Lion building we are unable to offer bedrooms located on the ground floor.

  • Are pets allowed?

    Yes– We are a dog friendly inn with dog friendly rooms. Your four-legged friend is very welcome, all we ask is you bring your own dog bed and towels out of consideration for the other guests. We do charge £15 per stay for your dog to join you in your room; this is so we can give the room the extra special attention needed afterwards to ensure is pristine for the next arrivals.

    We love to welcome well-behaved owners and their dogs to the inn, but please be aware that not everyone loves your dog as much as you do. To help us keep happy customers of both 2 and 4 legged varieties please observe our simple requests:

    - Dogs are allowed in the bar area, but not in the dining only areas
    - Please don’t let your dog jump or pester other guests, or their pets or disturb others by barking
    - Make sure your dog is clean and dry before they come in to the inn
