The Golden Lion serves a pub lunch between 12.00 and 2.30pm which is free. You just pay for drinks. They don't serve afternoon tea.

Afternoon tea is served in the Queens Room at 3.30pm and is free.

The Lion's Share was going to be the special afternoon tea on QE & QV, I didn't see any sign of it being offered last time we were onboard but it was only a short trip and we didn't spend a great deal of time in the pub.
It's showing on the Cunard website.

It's called The Lions Share and is on Queen Victoria. More savouries and beer served with it.

It was available last week on QV. I didn't succumb (no room!) but it did look quite substantial and the Queen's Room tea is more our style...

Here are the menus and the price ( $25) from the Queen Elizabeth...and the Queen Mary 2 so I suspect the Queen Victoria is similar.

Queen Elizabeth

Thanks, tmee. That's good news that "The Lion's Share" is now available on QM2. The initial roll-out announcement last September only indicated it was going to be available on QE and QV at that time.

You are welcome. The QM2 sailing I was on, was last November (2017.) So, they may have been testing to see how it would go?

Does anyone know if the afternoon tea or lunch in the pub has any veggie options? Looking at the menus can't see anything . I wanted to try the fish and chips but nothing available for veggie hubby

I'm inclined to agree. I do love beer and it's fun to taste a flight, but at afternoon tea, I believe that one should drink TEA. And maybe a flute of bubbly.

I agree. Doesn't appeal to me at all. It does just make you wonder, though, whether there will come a time when afternoon tea in the Queens Room is no longer 'free' but also comes at a charge...
