    We went into the Yellow Lion at Aston tonight, thinking of having a meal in our local. Nice and easy to get to, no car required.

    Mistake or what! The place was overrun with kids for a start. I've got nothing against kids in the right place, but playing with everything in sight in an eating area is not the right place.

    We ordered drinks and a meal. 10 minutes later no drinks appeared. We were told they would be here soon. The waitress was taking more notice of the kids. 10 minutes more, no drinks.

    While we were waiting, the chef came outside. He had a towel over his shoulder. I don't know what colour that towel was supposed to be, but it was filthy grey. Not just food spills, but you would have thought he had cleaned the floor with it.

    Temper getting up, we decides this was not the place for a nice Saturday night drink and a meal. We cancelled and went to Elmwood Farm.

    Two weeks ago this was not the case, so what happened?

    Had a fabulous meal this afternoon. Great price, and wonderful, polite service. Staff were very polite and couldn't have helped any more.

    The decor is delightful and clean. All round good pub.

    Will be back, thank you.

    We had a university re-union at this pub on Saturday 23rd May 2009. I booked in advance for 16 of us.

    Roger, the pub landlord, and all his staff were excellent. The food was fresh, tasty and very reasonable. Service was excellent and quick. Very good variety of beers for the boys! Although they didn't have a large selection of wine, because of the size of the party, Roger provided us with other wines as requested. They couldn't have done enough!

    Although unlikely to be in the area again, if I was, I'd certainly call in for a meal. It's a minute off the motorway and has a far better atmosphere than the sometimes grotty services! Well done to all staff for helping us to have an excellent weekend.

    Don't know who wrote the last review but they must be on a different planet.

    There is a good selection of beer, including a selection of real ales, which the landlord keeps in top quality and prices are the same as neighbouring pubs.

    The food is also good quality, homely and plentiful. If you want posh you can go to Aston Hall. We eat there regularly and all the selections are tasty and provide good value for money.

    The layout of the pub provides a kiddies room with games and a pool table, upstairs from that is a large display TV. In the main bar there are three areas, each with their own atmosphere. There's the main bar area for those who like to stand, a lounge area with plenty of seating and a third room which provides a quiet area.

    The decor is typical for a village pub and the atmosphere is friendly, you'll find people of all ages in there, which I think is always a good sign. Overall a good pub to visit!

    Around ten years ago this was a vibrant pub, good food and very friendly service, with a landlord who delivered the goods to punters.

    As I recall, we'd often be unable to get served on a Saturday as the place was heaving. The pub-quiz on a Thursday was almost bursting, and you had to grab a seat around eight - These days you can easily grab a seat minutes before, and the pub is still quite bare.

    Sadly, time has not been good for the Yellow Lion since the landlord change. Staff turnover is high, and the landlord quite distant and frankly doesn't have his fingers on the pub as he should.

    The beer is of good quality, and some smashing real-ales to be had, but over-priced.

    Food is of poor standard fayre, but does seem to be homemade, as opposed to the standard bung-in-the-microwave meals many family pubs are. The menu is average, and the food just as similar. Prices are OK, and if you're after a basic, quick meal for the family, it will be fine. If you're taking someone out for something a little better then avoid. One thing to avoid is their pies! A spoonful of meat filling, topped with claggy mash and gravy, and dry, over-cooked peas seem to be their speciality!

    For over a year the toilets stunk, until they were moved toward the back of the pub, and now almost inaccessible, though much cleaner.

    Just to give you a feeling of the pub, or rather the neglect of the landlord, their "Christmas Meal" banner remained up all year round outside of the pub for three years! So judge of that what you will.
