Stayed here on one of their winter offers, (DB&b), and had a great time. Staff were wonderful, food simply perfect, and we had a great night at a folk evening with the brilliant Mike Harding. We will definitely go back.

We had lunch here yesterday, having eaten here on our last visit to Settle . Again, we weren't disappointed ; there was a welcoming log fire with inviting tables nearby , next to the bar, or a very nice dining room with a more formal touch. Staff were very friendly and pleasant and we were seated and offered drinks very... More

We visit the Lion every couple of weeks. Has excellent beer and very good food. Could do perhaps with a bit more seating during the day. Often struggle for a table but plenty of space. I have often seen people walk out because of lack of seating. No problem in Summer as a lovely big garden.

At the time of booking, we asked the receptionist if they were proposing to do anything special for valentines night in the associated restaurant? we were informed that the chef would be, and with this in mind we also booked a...

We came here on the 5th off feb for the winter deal stay which included a 3 course meal bed breakfast.

We arrived in Settle on 20 January at 4pm. Having gone in a couple of the other pubs in the village, we went into this one and were greeted with an amazing log fire and friendly staff. We asked about availaibility of rooms and were lucky enough to be shown a really nice one (Room 15) which we took instantly.... More

Just had a wonderful 2 night stay with friends at the Lion Hotel. It's our third year staying at the Lion. The staff are very welcoming and friendly. The rooms are clean and tidy with very comfortable beds ( just what you need after a day's walking!). The evening meals are excellent from the menu, I would recommend the Settle... More

My partner and i stayed at the lion for new-years, We had to take our dog and were put in a dog friendly room, which was lovely, but as we booked thinking that we had a dog sitter and the room we originally booked was bigger and more expensive, we still got charged for the original booking.

I apologize you were charged the original booking price, we would have obviously changed that had we known what had happened. I'm not sure why you heard noise from the room next to yours as that is not used until 11 am every day. I apologize for the 'ill mannered, unhelpful staff member'. We do have WI FI, it is... More
