The Golden Lion was built around 500 years ago, and was believed to have been built to attract waggoners carrying timber from nearby Blean woods.
Inside, you'll find a large bar in a traditional style and a separate restaurant area. We serve delicious homemade food, such as steak and ale pie, pan fried duck breast, poached fillet of plaice, rib-eye steak and pan fried seabass, and a great selection of lagers and ales from Shepherd Neame, Britain's oldest brewer, as well as a fine selection of wines and spirits.
Outside, we have a large and beautifully-maintained garden, the perfect spot to enjoy a cold drink on a warm day. There are two bat and trap pitches here, which can be hired for corporate team building events, and we can accommodate a 70-seat marquee and even a bouncy castle for private functions! These are all attributes that have earned The Golden Lion the Shepherd Neame Best Garden award.
So if you're looking for a wonderful meal with great drinks, or a venue for a private function, get in touch with us today!
