The Lyon Inn Bar & Restaurant

The Lyon is all about friendly service, a great atmosphere and fresh food.

The Lyon Inn strikes a balance between a local pub and a great restaurant offering a modern British menu using beautiful local ingredients wherever we can. All at affordable prices too, with most of our main courses being between £12-£20. The Lyon’s owners – Craig & Andi – are both chefs, so our quality is always very important to us!

Make sure to check out our menus for more information – our menu differs depending on which day of the week you are visiting so it’s always worth checking what we’re serving before booking. We like to cater to everyone, so we do everything from fine dining to burger & chip shop nights so we’re sure there is something for every taste and every day of the week if you really don’t feel like cooking whilst visiting the Forest of Dean.

We have multiple seating areas around the pub so if you’re after a chilled out fireside seat or a more private restaurant table we are happy to take seating requests at the time of your booking. We have the restaurant (for a more fine dining vibe), The Fire Room (this is where the original fire was – and is a traditional pub room for a more private but comfy seat), The Snug (for a really secluded feel – with comfy sofas and quirky surroundings) or The Bar which is our newer vibe with our beautiful log burner.

If you have any queries then please do contact us – via our website or social media.


General Information

The Lyon Inn is open to all and is dog friendly too! We are situated in a popular walking area and we always have treats, doggy bags, water and towels on hand for muddy paws. You’re more than welcome to pop in for coffee & cake, or for a lunch/dinner with your pup! We do ask that dogs are kept on leads and are not able to go into the restaurant room – but all our other spaces are suitable for dogs.

Eat & Drink

From the welcoming bar to the wonderful restaurant you will find The Lyon offers all you could want; from meeting friends for coffee and fresh cakes, a burger and a pint, a lingering lunch or a 3 course evening meal prepared freshly for you by our skilled chefs, using locally sourced, daily delivered seasonal produce and a wine list especially prepared to pair well with our menu.

We will always have a good selection of local hand pulled ales, gorgeous gins, super spirits and wonderful whiskies – aswell as all the favourites! We also serve a small menu of cocktails, along with prosecco, champagne and good wines.

The Lyon Inn is amazing! We just had a fantastic meal, which was so tasty. The team looked after us really well and there was a really nice atmosphere. Well done everyone! We will be back soon.
