Food & Drink

We are open from 10am daily for morning coffee and brunch is served from 10.30am. We serve food throughout the day from noon until 9.30pm Sunday-Thursday (10.30pm Friday and Saturday).

We use fresh, locally-sourced produce to provide you with a truly local experience. Our menus are created to make the best of the wonderful produce grown and reared in the Cherwell Valley and the surrounding countryside. Our food is seasonal giving you scrumptious variety every time you visit.

Our Manager Matt, Head Chef Patrick and the team offer a complete seasonal fixed-price menu. Sandwiches and sharing boards are also available. On Sundays we have our 2 and 3 course Sunday Lunch menu which includes some selected pub classics. We also offer a range of gluten-free and vegetarian choices.

The Lion is a great setting for morning coffee, brunch, a light lunch, afternoon tea or afternoon pizza with your family, friends or business associates.

Owing to popularity our restaurant is often busy, and we would encourage you to make a reservation to avoid disappointment.

If you have any specific dietary requirements or allergies, or any questions about our food, please let us know when you make your table booking.
