On board our Queens.
The cozy and inviting atmosphere is one of the reasons The Golden Lion is a popular venue on board. With traditional pub decor and a well-stocked bar, it's a comfortable and familiar space to enjoy.
A friendly home-from-home to savor classic gastro pub fare.
Offering an enticing menu of celebrated British dishes, prepared with Cunard’s signature flair, The Golden Lion is a wonderfully laidback destination to enjoy a relaxed lunch or drink on board.
With its sumptuous leather banquette seating, darts board, and occasional live sports, a visit to The Golden Lion offers all the charm, warmth, and authenticity of walking into a traditional British pub.
The food here is equally authentic, with a menu that showcases hearty and much-loved dishes enjoyed for generations throughout the UK and beyond.
You’ll find indulgent classics such as beer battered Atlantic cod, a prime Angus burger and our Signature Golden Lion Ploughman’s, served alongside a smaller plates selection (if you’re after a lighter snack), and a choice of desserts if you still have space.
A daily pie special is another highlight you can always count on - a perfect accompaniment to one of our Signature Cunard ales, brewed in partnership with Dark Revolution. There’s also a tasting flight available if you’re like to sample all three in the range.
The atmosphere at The Golden Lion is always relaxed and vibrant, with occasional live music and televised sports, complemented by lively pub quizzes and darts tournaments – an ideal way to meet new friends or put your skills to the test.
A casual dress code is observed all day long, although if you do wish to dress a little smarter in the evenings that’s perfectly fine too.
Food at The Golden Lion is included in your fare and alcohol is purchasable as priced.
Gluten free and vegetarian dishes are available. If you have any other dietary requirements, please contact the venue in advance. Find out more about dietary requirements on board.
With time at sea the choice, as always with Cunard, is yours. There is as much or as little to do as you please, with more possibilities than you have time to discover.
With its sweeping dancefloor, double-height ceiling, and glittering chandeliers, a visit to the Queens Room can’t fail to evoke the timeless romance of ocean travel.
Guests who sail with Cunard frequently have come to regard it as the social hub of the ship, and on Gala Evenings especially this elegant bar and ballroom offers a truly magical setting in which to be swept away in the spirit of the occasion.
It’s also where we serve our signature Afternoon Tea at 3:30pm each day. Just follow the soothing tones of the string quartet and the unmistakable scent of our chefs’ freshly baked scones. Then there’s the chance to brush up on your dancing or learn a new skill. From fencing to Argentine Tango, the Queens Room sets the stage for all kinds of activities.
It’s at night however that this elegant ballroom truly comes alive; no more so than on Gala Evenings (our famed black tie nights) when a live orchestra fills the air with music as guests take to the dancefloor in their finest eveningwear. Drink in the atmosphere from your table with a glass of champagne, or a speciality cocktail, and savor the chance to step out in style for one special night of indulgent celebration.
