This venue is much like a classic, British sports pub.
This bar on deck 2, opposite Sir Samuel’s, is modeled after an upscale, traditional English sports club, not like a common pub. The Golden Lion Pub has many leather bound books, and upscale sports memorabilia. There are dart boards, large televisions, a huge bar, red, green, and brown leather benches and chairs, as well as heavy oak tables.
Classic pub fare is offered daily at the Golden Lion. Dishes like shepherd’s pie, fish and chips, and a ploughman’s lunch are some of the traditional meals served here. We like all the food we had here, it comes highly recommended. Lunch is free with when you cruise with Cunard.
The Drinks are the same at all of the bars.
Being a pub however, there are a few more international beers: Bohemia, Hoegaarden, Staropramen, König Pilsner, King Fisher, Tsingtao in prices ranging from $4.75 to $5.95.
There are trivia contests, a piano player, large televisions and two electronic dart boards at the Golden Lion. There is much to do, much to drink, and wonderful conversations to have.
