Beautiful place to have a good pint. Lovely location, great service, fantastic pub food. You really cannot fault this place a lovely Yorkshire village pub, with loads of charm and character. A relaxing beer by the river.

A traditional and comfortable English Country Inn serving very good food with great local views of the spectacular Burnsall Bridge over the River Wharfe. Made very comfortable; the excellent evening dinner promised much for a good hearty breakfast the following morning which didn't disappoint setting us up well for further touring of The Yorkshire Dales

We arrived here very wet after our first day on the Dales Way. We were relieved to find our rooms clean and comfortable. The restaurant had a good menu, and the food was very good. The hotel also has a pizza restaurant which we did not sample.

Stayed in Burnsall, nearby Red Lion. The food was excellent, great variety of choices and served with style. The seafood platter so different to usual version, extremely tasty. Recommend the red lentil saugages too. Only in village one night- wish we lived in the vicinity. Oh and the beers were excellent too.

Many thanks for your lovely review, great to hear you enjoyed your food, the lentil sausages are made for us locally and they are very popular (even with the non vegetarians!), our menus are due to change again soon, so maybe you will visit again to sample our autumn/winter menu.

We stopped at the Red Lion in Burnsall on a Sunday evening, it was lovely, the staff were excellent, service fab and the food in the restaurant delicious, we were originally booked into the Manor House, part of the Red Lion, but we were told there was a wedding party there and it may get a bit noisy later so,...

Four of us ate in the Red Lion on a Sunday evening which meant it was reasonably quiet. The food was fantastic - we were spoiled for choice. The service was faultless. And what a location! Thank you to our family for choosing to take us to the Red Lion

Doing way of the roses and stayed in Burnsall , so we called in here for our tea . It's a beautiful pub / restaurant. Ordered gammon and my wife ordered Lamb. The food was lovely warm and well cooked we really enjoyed it. But at £3.70 for a pint of bitter I thought was expensive .

My husband and I stayed here after a wedding . Loved it. The location is beautiful. We stayed in the red lion itself, room 3. Lovely products provided, great shower, great room. The staff were really friendly, thoughtful and attentive. You can only get signal in the bar for 'phones and wifi is also limited. I'm disabled and although access... More

Many thanks for your review, pleased you enjoyed your stay, room 3 is the best room for disabled access although we agree not perfect as you do have to cross a gravelled area, although most people do manage, we try to tailor our service around guests special needs to make their stay as easy as possible.

We stayed at this brilliant, down-to-earth hotel (actually stayed in the Manor House B&B which is an annex just round the corner) on a whim. We were camping nearby and had just popped in for a drink and an hour in the warm but were so impressed we decided to get a room for the night despite having paid for... More

Thank you for your lovely review, with the weather being as it is I am surprised we haven't had more washed out campers, maybe after reading your review we will, all your comments were lovely, we do explain about the compact double rooms (of which we have 4) at the Manor House, they are undoubtedly small! maybe next time you...

Very nice location next to the river Wharf where you can fish, take beautiful walks and even get your bike out. Our room was pleasant, chintzy, comfy but not 'boutique' style. Unfortunately our pushed together twin brass beds both made 'twangy' noises when we turned over. Bathroom modern, roomy and well laid out, pity about the towels which were a... More
