Perfect Ending to Weekend

Perfect ending to our weekend. AlexNdro was amazing, his professionalism, customer service, and friendly smile was welcomed after a weekend where we had very bad service from another hotel and it was refreshing to see how passionate he is about service and we will be back and the food was delicious. Speedy service and well priced.

The Lion is a great place to meet up with friends for a meal. The drinks and service were great, the food fabulous. By the end, we had 3 courses and coffee and left with big smiles on our faces

Outstanding Food

Came here with my parents and sister on the way back up North while visiting a friend in Wendlebury, who recommended here as a place to eat. What a beautiful setting and the food was exceptional. We had the chateaubriand and the stone bass, followed by coffees and the chocolate bartlett for dessert. What really impressed us also was the Covid safe environment that the team fostered. A special mention to Alexander who gave us the history of some of the dishes!

Amazing Food & Service

Amazing food and fabulous service. We were impressed with everything including the professional approach to social distancing. Perfect stop-off point on the way to London from the North when in a motorhome… car park is big enough to accommodate. Our dogs were welcomed too. Thank you to Alexander our waiter and the chef.

Lovely in Every Way

This is a very stylish hotel and restaurant. We stayed here for three nights and were very happy. The location in wendlebury is lovely with a large car park. Our stylish bedroom was delightful and had a very comfy bed. We ate here on the first night and the food and service deserve credit. The staff work very hard. Breakfast each morning was also very good. We had a full English one morning then a continental and finally poached eggs, all very fresh and hot. We would highly recommend staying here if you are in the area.

Third Time Dining & Staying

We’ve now dined & stayed at The Lion three times over the last couple of years and have had nothing but fantastic experiences. The rooms are well kept, clean and the beds have been incredibly comfortable. Our last visit was in September just before the restaurant returned to a full menu. Whilst it was a shorter menu due to supply issues the food was still very good with only the burger not being quite as good as it usually is. The service throughout was excellent and our waiter (Alexander I believe? He’d formerly worked on cruise liners) looked after us incredibly well. When he realised it was our anniversary he brought us a complimentary pudding and glasses of fizz too. We will be coming back.

Great Food & Service

Great food & great service in a cosy pub. We sat on the terrace in the sunshine for a long lunch before lockdown.

Sunday Lunch

Oh, the joy of being in a pub/ restaurant again after lockdown, and what made it even better was the fabulous welcome and attention we received. Having eaten in this delightful pub many times before we were once again not disappointed. In fact, I would go as far as to say the best Sunday lunch I’ve had out. It was so nice to be recognised even after these long months. The pub itself is beautifully laid out and a real gem.

Lovely Lunch

We were going to Bicester village which doesn’t have a great range of places for lunch. I found this place by chance by googling places to eat near Bicester village. I am glad I found it here as the pub itself is lovely and the food was great. The service was also great and friendly. I will certainly be back next time I am in the area.
