Spent 2 nights here from the 18th May. Warm welcome, comfy room, good food, what's not to like. Parking is in a pay and display but that was close by and didn't cost very much. Would definitely recommend.

The town of Settle in the north of England is an ideal base for some excellent walking with a good selection of walks,shops and places to eat. The Lions Den is full of character and the staff are friendly and give a personal touch with log fires,good range of choice beers and proper fresh cold milk in the rooms. The... More

Just back from a golfing trip to Yorkshire. Stayed at the Lion for two nights, super pub/restaurant in a lovely village. Excellent food in the evening, good breakfasts, nice coffee. Five real ales, friendly helpful staff. Fantastic open fire in the main lounge, will definately be back again.

Stayed one night as part of a coast to coast bike ride. Very attentive staff from the moment we arrived . Our bikes were stored securely and the Inn has real character. The two rooms were both pleasant though ours had the noisiest floorboards and saniflo in the bathroom. The shower lacked power but these issues did not take away... More

Situated in the middle of a line of buildings on Settle's main street, The Lion's frontage doesn't look anything special. Step inside though, and things look up immediately: you're straight into the main bar area with open fire and inglenook, with a sweeping staircase. To the right is a modern, tastefully decorated and furnished dining room; through to the left... More

Had a lovely meal here on bank holiday Monday we were told on ringing the dining room was full but we're given a table in the bar no problem. Good choice on the menu and the kids were easily pleased with the fish and chips. They also got free ice cream afterwards. Staff were friendly and helpful especially the Italian... More

We eat here regularly and are never disappointed. The food is excellent and the staff consistently helpful, highly professional and friendly. Staff go the extra mile and are always very attentive. The environment is warm and welcoming and the menu brilliant. Cleanliness of very high standard with towels thrown in for wet dogs - and humans!!

Second stay here and very nice again. Lovely room with gorgeous big comfy bed, could have done with a net at the window during the day, not too big a problem though. Food was very good again, steak pud is tasty and very filling, breakfast is hearty and served quickly. Nice big fire to sit by in the bar, however,... More

We stayed a Friday and Saturday night mid April. We were welcomed as soon as we came through the door. Our room was nicely decorated and airy. As is often the case the ventilation in the en suite could have been better. We ate in on Friday night. The staff were young and very busy so service could have been... More
