My copy of the Cunarder has just been delivered by Postman Pat.

You can now eat in the Golden Lion on the QV in the evenings ($4 for starters, $8 for mains) between 6PM and 9PM.

So that, I would suggest, is the reason why the dress code has been removed from the pub.

Next the "Casuals" will require to dine free in GL on formal nights, as they already paid for formal dining in Cruise price. Or possibly demand a refund.
A new can of worms methinks.

And two meals if one should happen to pay twice?

I don’t have a great problem with this. I just hope they extend the existing menu, which is not great for vegetarians.

I don't have an issue with most of the menu choices listed so far:
"Garlic rope-grown Mussels, Sticky Sesame-crusted Norfolk Duckling Drumsticks, Mac and Cheese, Tandoori spiced Dorset Lamb Shank, 28-day Angus Beef Burger with pulled Brisket, Lobster Scampi, salt and pepper Squid, Sole Goujons, Scotch Eggs".

As this is in addition to the wide choices already available in the various main dining rooms, buffet, and extra-charge restaurants, this menu offers even further selection each evening, whether one is vegetarian or carnivore.

Paying for dinner in the Golden Lion is no different to paying in any of the alternative dining options. As I have already paid for dinner I only eat in my appointed restaurant on principle.

I have never eaten in the Pub of an evening as prefer the Dining Room. I certainly won't be eating there now if I have to pay. Have already paid for an evening meal. Rant over😀😀😀

'Lunch' (midday) may have been free. 'Dinner' is often a meal served after 6pm.

Quite right Luv, and knowing you, you'd be far too overdressed ( after 6pm) for the Pub. ...like you, I don't pay thousands of pounds for a single supplement to snack in the evenings in a Pub. I can nip next-door to my local to do that when I can't be bothered to cook in the evenings ........Jeans and all.

I was talking about dinner and it was free.

Normally we wouldn't take this up, but next year, the second half of our Hong Kong to Southampton trip is in Britannia, and while the restaurant itself doesn't especially bother us, having to dine at an appointed time - early or late - definitely does. So I can imagine, if we don’t get our waitlisted cabin, we will take advantage of the evening menu in the GL, as well as the various alternative dining choices in the KC.

My question was purely asking for facts as you state dinner was free in the pub yet the start of this thread was giving the cost of starters and mains at dinner time.
