We were staying in Pickering and my boyfriend knew the pub from his childhood. A good traditional homely pub! I can only imagine what it's like in the winter with the fires on! Very comfortable atmosphere, some great beers and drinks and proper home made food. It gets pretty busy because of its reputation and all the above reasons. We... More

First of all, absolutely fabulous location. I recommend walking to it from somewhere farther west--it's on the Coast to Coast path. Stone interior of bar and restaurant is lovely and evocative of its long history. Hotels rooms are comfortable, sadly not stone but modern, but with nice views of the moors. Food is fine, excessively large portions but better than... More

Had a lovely night at The Lion. The staff were welcoming and very helpful. Food was good, room was clean and comfy. The bathroom had a double shower and was a wet room with lots of space for disabled users We would certainly stay again

What a place! With excellent beer and food to set you up for a weekends walking. The steak and mushroom pie is to die for as is the T bone steak. The hospitality is true Yorkshire and very honest and friendly. We walked both Saturday and Sunday with full stomachs from a hearty breakfast, and retired to the bar for... More

The Lion at Blakey is fantastic place to stay. Fabulous panoramic views in an isolated location on the North Yorks Moors. The place oozes history. Good pub grub with very large portions. The rooms are quite small but comfortable.

We'd had a splendid day racing at Beverley & decides to call into the Lion Inn en route to home in Saltburn. We hadn't been for a few years & as usual pretty busy. The Theakstons hand pull was spot on & temperature just right. Unlike out last visit the meal arrived promptly in 15 minutes from order! The food... More

A welcome sight in the distance when walking across bleak moors. Evening meal excellent and a good breakfast and packed lunch. Rooms were comfortable with a bath - ideal after a day walking across the moors.

i loved this character hotel. It reeked with history and charm. You have to duck if you're taller than 5 foot to get through some of the doorways, but it adds to its charm. It is ideal for hikers on the Coast to Coast track. After soaking in our bath and delighting in the exposed beans and character windows in... More
