Since the new management has taken over this pub the atmosphere has changed for the better, it's a warm friendly place with some amazing food and drinks. It's got a good size carpark and an outdoor area with wooden sheltered tables and a large umbrella with heaters. It's dog friendly as long as the dog is well trained. Well worth a visit

Pub was very nice inside and staff were friendly and helpful. Looks like an historic building that's been converted with modern additions that work very well. Beer and food were good quality. The only other comment would be that the lunchtime menu is limited and quite pricey for a light meal.

Our daughter moved to the area that day, so this was the first place any of us had been out to eat in Earls Colne. We all really enjoyed our lunch - and the chips are amazing! Service was friendly and very efficient. It is also such a lovely old building. Looking forward to another lunch at The Lion

One of the best pubs I've ever found. Food was sublime, with one of the best pizzas I've ever had. The atmosphere is amazing, good music but not too loud so you can have a conversation, and great seating and vibe throughout. Highly recommended!

Came upon this place by accident, a recommendation from a friend locally. You know from the moment you step inside that the place was good. The Claire at the bar was very welcoming, good local beer and the sous chef was topping up the batter with beer. Decision made, fish and chips with a side plate of scampi. Food was even better than I expected, with a delicious homemade tartare sauce. Great staff, great food, great service and great atmosphere. If you find yourself anywhere near make sure to visit.
