We had an excellent time in Barnard Castle at The Golden Lion. We had a few drinks and fish and chips. Service was excellent.

First time in Barnard Castle and it was a lovely wee town. Went into the Golden Lion for lunch and can’t complain. Staff very friendly and food was great. Just had the 3 starters which was ideal for two and very tasty. Will definitely go back when in this area again.

Great pub, very old & fun decor, which for me, adds to it's charm. Locals were friendly towards us "blow ins"

Picked this place because it was family and dog friendly we weren’t disappointed. We were given a very warm welcome all the staff were very friendly and welcoming nothing was a problem. There was 12 of us and 2 dogs they spoilt us all. There was a very varied menu with a great choice. All the food was lovely everybody thoroughly enjoyed their meals the meals were all very reasonably priced excellent value and excellent quality we will defiantly call again many thanks for looking after us and spoiling us so well

We went as a group of 10. Everyone enjoyed their food and the servers was friendly. Nothing to go wild about but no real complaints.
