Here at The Golden you won’t miss any of the action. We have Sky Sports, BT Sports and Racing UK showing all the sporting action you would expect on many large HD TV’s. Come & enjoy a great pint whilst watching the best in sport. Here at The Golden Lion we are dedicated to supporting the local community, with this in mind we open at 11am on all home match days so we can accommodate you before and after the match!

Watford FC home football games are ridiculously busy for us, as we are walking distance from both the stadium and train station. It is standing room only, and as a consequence on these days we serve an alternative handheld menu.

We tend to be busy both before and after the match when the supports all return.

It has caused a few issues with “non football” customers turning up to discover that they can’t hear themselves think because its so busy, cant get a seat, and cant order from the advertised menu. The consensus being had they known it was a home match day and we would be so busy, they wouldn’t have come in and would like to have seen this information advertised.

  • We are first and foremost a home supporters pub where families and children are welcome. Although we will usually allow peaceful away supporters, there will be occasions where we admit our home supporters only.
  • On these dates, an alternative handheld menu will be served. Our main menu WILL NOT be available.
  • Space may be limited at times to standing room only.
