We have stayed at the Red Lion the last two years on our annual xmas shopping break in the dales, there was always a big hearty warm welcome on arrival, and excellent food, sadly not so this year, on arrival there was nowhere in the bar to sit, a good sign as the place was busy, we were an hour...

I booked the Red Lion Hotel as a last minute booking. We had the Friday off work and were due to visit the Grassington Christmas Fayre on the Saturday. So we decided to have an overnight stay beforehand. A very good decision. I have stopped at the Red Lion many times for a drink but never overnight. Its in a... More

Thank you so much for your lovely comments, they really are very much appreciated. The star rating is very complex and they rate you on things such as if you have an elevator, night porter etc...and not on things such as food, service etc... We have a great team of staff here at the Lion and they always endeavour to... More

Then we came back for an evening meal the following evening. Excellent menu. Two starters for me as usual . Very tasty and well... More

Me and my boyfriend chose to stay at the Red Lion after attending the Grassington Christmas Farye 09.11.14. We stayed in room M38 (which I requested a week before hand after looking at the rooms on the website) in the Manor Hotel.

thank you for reviewing our hotel, The bar man in question is a very good member of staff, why you feel the need to comment on his appearance is beyond us, as a business we do not discriminate on looks/colour/nationality etc. and do not find you comments acceptable. The bar is approximately 10 steps away from reception not exactly a... More

The Red lion pub is in the centre of a beautiful village. We stayed for 2 nights (Mon & Tues) at a very reasonable price. The staff were very friendly and the food was excellent. It has a lovely residents lounge where you can sit in front of a roaring fire. Our room was small but cosy and full of... More

We stayed one night in a luxury room. Booked via late rooms.com and paid £120 B&B, per couple. Excellent value, as full rate is stated as being around the £300 mark (more about that later!) Checked-in and was shown to our room, in the annexe to the side of the pub. The room had stacks of character:antique furniture,stunning open fire,... More

Good choice of food on the board. Had ploughmans and home made soup along with home made chips - which were fantastic!! Reasonably priced, though other dishes go up to the usual gastro pub prices. Plenty of parking around the back, and nice to stroll / dog walk by the river.

My son and I arrived, footsore and weary, after a days walking on a fairly damp and dreary day. We were a little hesitant to enter the pub as we were somewhat wet and muddy, but a sign outside stating that families and walkers were welcome put us at ease. It's one thing for a pub to welcome walkers (muddy... More

We went to this Yorkshire pub/restaurant/hotel in October, a beautiful month at this location. The service was great, (the place is run by a family). The food was wonderful and the setting is relly pretty. We were there for three days and had a great time visiting the local villages and pubs.
