The Golden Lion

Tipton St. John, Nr Sidmouth EX10 0AA
Tel: 01404 812881

The Golden Lion sits close to the River Otter in the heart of Tipton St John, a welcoming village surrounded by East Devon’s glorious rolling hills.

A warm welcome awaits with a varied menu specialising in delicious fresh fish and meat so local landlord Franky could name its parents. If you haven’t tried Franky’s chunky fish soup, you haven’t lived!

The quirky and spacious external seating area includes a patio and separate garden, both of which are exceptionally well-maintained all year round.

An extensive wine list is available in addition to local ales and cider and there is plenty of parking in the large car park at the rear of the pub.

What do you get if you mix a quintessential English village pub with a French bistro? The Golden Lion.
