Our Landlord, Iain, welcome’s you to the Lazy Lion, as if you are a guest in his own home.  We want you to be comfortable, and feel that everything is being taken care of, so you can focus on enjoying quality time with you friends and family.  The warm, bright ambiance of our dining room and bar area is the perfect setting for an afternoon or evening of delicious food, washed down with an excellent drinks selection.

We offer a wide variety of locally brewed beers, an exquisite selection of wines and bubbles, hot and cold beverages made using our locally roasted coffee beans, and soft drinks.

If it’s one of those beautiful coastal summer days, join us in our beer garden.  We get the sun all day, and if you would like a nibble, you can order from our main menu and dine Al Fresco.  There’s also a play area for the little ones.
