Golden LionMayton Lane
See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.
Traditional village local with many activities, including darts teams. Bat & trap is played in the large garden in summer. The Golden Lion lies just outside Canterbury in the quiet village of Broad Oak and was built some 500 years ago to serve waggoners carrying timber from nearby Blean Woods, where there are plenty of walking trails. The 7 bus stops near the pub, and the more frequent 6 buses stop about 0.8km away. There is a spacious bar and separate restaurant, each decked out in traditional style and bathed in natural light. The large garden has two bat and trap pitches which are used for league games and the county finals, and can be hired for corporate team building events. The pub can also be used for private events: the restaurant is available for hire, and there is an option to use a 70-seat marquee. Motorhomes which belong to the Brit Stops scheme can use the pub and its car park.
