We booked The Lion for dinner for 4 people - our dog was welcome in the bar area where we had a great table close to a beautiful log fire. Service was very friendly and quick and we all shared a lovely seafood platter starter, and 3 of us chose the steak suet pudding main course which was wonderful. We... More

Drove over, with my Mum on Thursday, from Blackpool to Settle for a drive. When we got there to be honest, we didn't know where to go for lunch. The Lion was recommended by a local. When we arrived we were shown to a table in the restaurant withouth delay. Mum and I both ordered Fish and chips, which came... More

I am so pleased we were recommended to you and you trusted their recommendation. It’s so nice to hear information is still being passed on by word of mouth. By your comments I am guessing it was worth the drive out from Blackpool? We hope to see you again. Thank you for your kind words. Hayley Mace and all the... More

Quick overnight stay in a pub we have stopped in many times. The food is worth every penny, good quality and generous portion sizes. The staff were all very friendly and the service was good, if a little slow for the food. The rooms were very nicely appointed only criticism is the size of the TV in the rooms, but... More

My son had the fish and chips and chocolate brownie from the '2 courses for £9' menu, while I also had fish & chips but the smaller size and a taster size... More

Stayed for just one night,although we had booked two. The room we were in - 14 - the bottoms of the net curtains were black with dirt and there were splashes/stains up the wall by the hospitality tray. Restaurant area very nice but the bedrooms badly need updating. My sister stayed in room 15 and had to ask to be... More

The Lion in Settle was the centre of a wonderful folk music gathering last weekend. For three nights in a row there were up to 20 musicians in the Lion's Den, and a special bar was set up outside with a dozen cask ales. The atmospheric courtyard was a venue for 'rapper' sword-dancers, morris dancers and general jigging about. Although... More

We were put up here when we were in Settle for work, and so I can't comment on the actual price of the room as I don't know it. But I thought everything in the pub was finished to a very high standard, with a lovely roaring fire and very good ale and wine in the bar. The food in... More

We were in room 2 overlooking the court yard. The noisy extremely irritating kitchen fan is outside these rooms and is on from early morning till 10.30. Then when someone puts their shower on the pump whirring away adds to the noise. The worst however was Friday night when it seems all the youth from the district descend on the... More
