Even the most discerning guest is bound to be impressed by the standard of comfort at the Golden Lion. All rooms have recently been stylishly refurbished, all have superbly appointed en suite facilities and all have flat-screen tv with Sky.

Particularly spacious, our rooms blend traditional and contemporary looks and are varied in shape and layout, reflecting the individuality of the Golden Lion’s heritage. We have several rooms suitable for disabled guests.

Free internet broadband is available in the Golden Lion’s public areas and a lift serves all five floors.

Robert Burns in Stirling

Robert Burns, Scotland’s national poet, stayed at the Golden Lion Hotel in 1787, and late one evening (or in the wee small hours of the morning) he etched the controversial poem Stirling Lines on a window pane in one of the public rooms. Was that room what is now the Library Bar? We do know that Burns returned some weeks later and shattered the offending pane with his riding crop (well, he was the pop idol of his day, mobbed in nearby Broad Street and at the Tollbooth.) The window glass is gone: the story remains forever.

Restaurants and Bars

For well over two centuries The Golden Lion has welcomed guests, with delicious fare, fine wines and refreshing ales. Friendly, knowledgeable service is another of our keynotes, in both the cosy Library Bar and the adjoining City Brasserie. You’ll find our sommelier has compiled an exceptional selection of fine wines from the New World and the Old, with something to please every taste. Our chefs make something special of dishes traditional and modern alike.

City Brasserie

The City Brasserie complements the adjacent Library Bar with an elegant, spacious layout, service that is always attentive, discreet and friendly, and a memorably high standard of cuisine. Delicious local produce such as beef, lamb and Scottish seafood are among the highlights of an outstanding and imaginative menu, which caters for all special dietary requirements. A children’s menu is also available.

Library Bar

Classic Hospitality is the hallmark of the comfortable, wood-panelled Library Bar, and a cool, quiet pint here is a favourite choice of guests and locals alike. There’s a fine array of malt whiskies to tempt you, or a cocktail or two, as you while away an hour or so under the framed prints and memorabilia that recall the Golden Lion’s 18th century origins as a coaching inn. The full bar service includes snacks served throughout the day, along with coffees, teas and pastries. A mouth-watering and varied bar meal menu is offered all day ‘til 10 pm and live entertainment is a regular attraction.
