The Lion Inn near Monmouth

The Lion Inn near Monmouth

Located in the beautiful historic town of Monmouth, the 16th century Lion Inn is easy to get to and definitely worth a visit if your tummy begins to rumble. A stone-built pub, it retains much of its authentic charm and its handsome façade is a welcome sight.

Stepping inside, the Lion Inn has a classic pub feel with exposed beams, open fire, comfortable seating and cosy corners to nestle into. Whether you have reserved your favourite table or are popping in for the first time, the whole family (including four-legged friends) is welcome to come inside or enjoy a drink in the sunshine in the summer.

Offering diners both set menus and daily specials, the pub has a range of tempting dishes to choose from. Serving up traditional grub, you can get ready to sink your knife and fork into a classic pub favourite or try out some of the more exotic fare on offer. From mushroom wellington to kangaroo steak to chicken curry, you can sample delicious world cuisine from this tiny corner of Monmouth.

As diverse as the menu is, the majority of ingredients used to create these showstoppers are sourced from within 10 miles of the pub. Seasonal vegetables accompany meals, and meats are supplied from the local communities of Shirenewton, Raglan and Trellech. Emphasising the importance of quality, local produce, each meal benefits from fresh, clean flavours and expert touch.

Whether you fancy a little something to graze on, a sharing platter for two, or want to go all out with three scrumptious courses, there are plenty of options for everyone. The pub also includes smaller portions for children and caters for different dietary requirements too.

First opening in 1580, the pub has welcomed countless patrons and travellers over the centuries. Hosting event nights throughout the week, the pub still enjoys lots of activity and involvement from both locals and visitors. This winning combination keeps the atmosphere very much alive and there are events taking place most nights of the week, including jazz nights, quiz nights and food-themed evenings.
