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.
