user reviews of the Lion Hotel & Restaurant, Belper

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

Much improved. 4 or 5 real ales on, seperate pizza restaurant and they ofter have music in the courtyard on sunny Sundays.

Quite a posh interior. There's a sign outside boasting about a large selection of ales but I felt a bit disappointed when I went in. They ran a local beer festival last year, I couldn't make it but I'd certainly go down this year if they held one. I know some people who were very let down with the service at a private function they had there recently, but I suppose that's beside the point. As a pub, it's worth visiting.

The Lion is an old coaching inn on the main road (A6) through Belper. I have driven past it 100’s of times but had never been in until a few days ago on a cold snowy February day.

Other than the heating being a bit lacking, I was impressed. It was clean, reasonably comfortable and the staff were friendly. There were three mainstream ales on the handpumps … Pedigree, London Pride and Landlord plus one from the local Amber micro brewery … Barnes Wallis IPA which was excellent.

I have no complaints about the food either. The two-course Credit Crunch Lunch at £5 is very, VERY good value. I had home made soup with a freshly baked bread roll and butter, followed by sausages (from a local butcher) with proper mash and yummy onion gravy which was excellent. (There are other options).

My wife gave the ladies loo a 5-star rating (quite a rarity !!!) and I couldn’t fault the gents either. We will definitely be eating and drinking here again …

We called in on a visit to Belper recently but although the young man serving spoke with enthusiasm about real ale, when we returned one that had soured, there seemed to be a reluctance to exchange it. The other ale sampled was not a problem.
