apparently there are 26 known versions of how to spell this town with the first three used on the signs as you come in one from each direction , we came across this place on the way in to the forest of dean from wales , first thing we saw were sign's on the way in to the town advertising a weekend cider festival at the lion inn that's my other halfs tipple so we were predisposed to stop, as we got to the pub right on thre bend there was a motorhome parked with room for our's alongside, looked like an invitation to me so we stopped one of our best moves, the pub is a bit spit and sawdust so if you want a modern plastic palace don't bother but to me it was home from home with 5 cask ales and 3 draught ciders in the bar then a further dozen ciders in a marqee at the rear with a band, by the time we were settled they were on to an open mike session in the tent so we went and hid in the bar after a couple of decent local ales i was well into a wye valley beer called butty bach simular to TT landlords & tribute after 5 pints couldn't tell the difference,
the pub is in ********* apparently and though a member i hadn't got my copy with me but tony/tom the lanlord said he's been welcoming camping van's ever since he's had the pub, also dog friendly shuts though at 4;30 sundays

Thanks for the info - I've added the pub to the POI database.

Well, this is very useful info for us ...thanks for the heads up!
My parents live in Cleddon, and we usually drive through Trellech past the lion pub, but as I am not a drinker, we have not ventured in, but used a wildcamp POI in a car park on the Tintern road, or a very small campsite called Heather Dene just outside The Narth.
We can't park near my parents house because the access road is overgrown with trees.

We use The Lion as a pub regularly. Carpark isn't particularly level. The pub though is as described and the Wye Valley Butty Bach is top notch.
