Situated in the centre of Magor in the village square, The Golden Lion has all the charm and characteristics of a traditional Village Inn

With its warm, welcoming and friendly atmosphere you can enjoy great home cooked food, an enviable choice of wines and beers, weekly guest cask ales, fabulous live entertainment, a venue for that special event and so much more.

The Golden Lion is brimming over with “Welshness”.
“We have a great team who live locally, we source local ingredients for our award-winning menus, serve local beers and support local charities,” said owner Louise Jones.

“Our focus is simple, we’re a family-run business, offering a genuine warm Welsh welcome, delicious food, and excellent service, all of which combined makes for a perfect sociable and dining experience.

“Our truly amazing head chef Dion Tidmarsh is continually creating new dishes and recently his pan-fried salmon, chorizo, potatas bravas, spring onion fritters and salsa Verdi was an award-winning dish for one of the ‘Must Eat 35 Dishes in Wales’ by Wales Online. We attribute this to its fresh ingredients, the flair and skill of our chef, and of course his team.

“Also on our menu, and another fabulous signature dish at The Golden Lion, is our grilled fillet of sea bass with crushed new potatoes, sea asparagus, cockle, prawn and mussel, lemon and herb butter sauce – a best-selling dish with our regulars.

“Our menus are inspired by the seasons and we make sure we take advantage of the fresh produce around at different times of the year.

“So, for spring of course lamb is on the menu: slow cooked leg of Welsh lamb – creamed garlic and rosemary potatoes, charred leeks, salt baked rainbow carrots and red wine jus – delicious!

“We support Welsh farmers and buy Usk Valley beef from East of Brecon, and dairy produce coming from Mead Farm, in Redwick.

“We also have an enviable reputation for both our vegetarian and our vegan menus and people come far and wide to sample our food.

“PETA recognised The Golden Lion for ‘Its Delicious, Cruelty-Free Fayre’, and when selecting the top 12 menus that meet the growing demand for hearty, healthy, and humane holiday fare, Magor’s The Golden Lion earned itself a well deserved spot on the list – a great testament to our hard-working chefs, who strive to make great tasting dishes with the fififinest locally sourced ingredients.
