Great service, food was superb. It is designed to be a London pub and wouldn't look out of place. It is however a lot cheaper. Well worth a visit. Beer not the best (go to John Hughes) however food and service easily make up for it.

I have frequented this pub many times over the last year. The menu is varied, and the food is very tasty. The prices are considered normal. Highly recommended for couples or groups.

They have a good choice of beers, wines and the menu is extensive, with European and Georgian offerings. Downstairs is a billiard room, where parties can be organized. Highly recommended.

Nice Welcome. You get large place to make your invited people relax. Food is top-selection, with ad-hoc cooking extras, at low prices for this high-quality level. Donetsk (the city with millions of roses) enjoy this restaurant, located right in the middle of the town, i.e. large street, green environment, high trees, flowers ... ... and no noise : absolutely quiet! I went there many times, with my invited people feeling happy from the beginning. Nice crew, very polite and multi-languages skilled ! What Else :-) ?

The single best place in Donetsk for an American, Canadian Brit, Aussie or Zealander - before the Russian infestation. This pub has great food, and excellent service - probably the best in Donetsk. Something as simple as a four cheese pizza is almost artful. I am sad that Westerners arenot welcome in Ukraine any longer. Sad that I can't include a stop here any longer. When the war is over, I will be back.

This pub has improved greatly since first time I was here in 2010 ... Clean, nice food with the odd Irish name thrown in to make it seem authentic .. Johnny Foxes Rabbit dish ... And for those Irish that arrive when the menu says 'proper Irish chips' it is wedges and not chunky Irish potato chips :-)

Pretty generic pub, looks a bit out of the box, but you are getting your Guinness (poured properly), and the food is OK. Scottish steak is good, so are onion rings. Strangely enough, I've also got some sushi there (you can't get away without a sushi anywhere in ex-USSR I guess), and they were pretty nice! Service seems to be a bit slow.

When I am in Ukraine, visit Golden Lion Irish Pub in Donetsk - as I was told all details and materials were brought really from Ireland. I like decor of the walls by drawings. This is a place where I ordered Murphy and Guinness. We used to spend Fridays with my bank ex-colleagues and even played casino there and billiard; alive band entertained us downstairs. Tequila I tried there as well the first time in my life. British Council has organized several evenings there (not only Irish dinner waited for us but we prepared a special program with songs, humor stories, quiz - winners got prizes!!!). Once I and my daughter met New Year there - was great fun! With a pride I invited my husband there to try pizza - he appreciated as well. So this place is so democratic and you may visit it on any occasion. Staff were always welcoming (started with the hostesses at the entrance) and barmen and waiters. Many foreigners there any time.

I am from the USA and have eaten at several 'Irish Pubs'. I loved this one. The food was great and the portions were great for the price. I loved the Vodka and Tequila. My friends had two straight nights of drinking shots there for an amazing price! The staff was great, quick, great service. We sat both inside and on the outside terrace. I have never been to an outdoor place that gave you blankets to keep you warm on cool nights. I enjoy the atmosphere both inside and outdoors. I will return on my next trip to Donetsk. It is a great place to go to relax, to socialize, drink and have nice pub food.

I know this place from the long time! And in general like it but management have to start change something there all changes not really interesting - for example why there are sushi in the menu, I have never seen sushi in the pub, it doesn't suit to concept also prices for glass of beer are not cheap! Food is average. Only atmosphere there still good!

love the food, its mostly British i think, and they have a lot of imported goodies! so for those missing food and drink (ginger ale or malt :) available in your native countries but not in Ukraine, there is a definite possibility that you will find it here. the environment is nice and the waiters are very helpful and downstairs they have a Ballard table( dunno if i spelled it right) in my opinion its a perfect place to celebrate a special occasion

I have been to the Golden Lion now five or six times over a year or so. Service is always friendly and efficient, even willing to go the extra mile for special requests. They have an excellent selection of Ukraine, Irish and European beers on tap. And while I have not tried the sushi, due to personal policy of not eating sushi certain distances from an ocean except at real Japanese houses, the food we've had there really is excellent...always fresh and clearly home made. In total it makes for a nice place for a drink along with a good meal.

I do not recommend this restaurant, the administration does not comply with sanitary standards. There are plenty of other cafes within a 3-5 minute walk from GoldenLion.
