On a recently holiday to North Wales we made a stop at The Old Lion Harborough Magna to break up the long journey home.  This pub is located in the small Warwickshire village of Harborough Magna near Rugby and what a find it was!

The Pub

It has a large outside patio area with lots of seating, great on a nice sunny day.  The décor inside is smart, clean and modern.  I loved all the pictures of Lions hanging around the restaurant.

There were lots of nice touches such as blankets to use outside to keep you warm.

The Menu

They have a great varied menu of meat, fish, burgers, steaks and a number of stone-baked pizzas.  They also have a set lunch time menu or sandwiches.  The kids menu had a choice of mains for £5 and a dessert for £2.50.  It was hard to decide what to choose so we shared a chicken burger and a pizza.  The food was really good!

I would definitely recommend one of their fresh dough, hand stretched, stone-baked pizzas!  We went for the American Hot one.  We also saw their sandwiches being served and they looked amazing.

The children also went for pizza which gets served with a choice of two sides.

The kids get to choose ice cream or fairy cakes to decorate for dessert.  My daughter immediately went for the fairy cakes!  I think this is a great idea.  They get two fairy cakes topped with icing and some marshmallows to decorate them with.  Amelia really enjoyed that part.

Would also recommend the Baked Alaska from the dessert menu!

Final Thoughts ….

Overall we had a lovely experience eating at The Old Lion Harborough Magna.  There is a good selection of food on the menu and it was all presented well and tasted great.  I would say its a little pricier than your average pub menu but I think the quality of food deserves it.  The lunch time menu however seems good value for money.  Well behaved dogs are allowed in the bar area.
