Situated on the main street running through Settle. Warm and comfortable bar and restaurant, serving a good range of beers and wines. Nice menu with service from pleasant and attentive staff. Tried a steak which was of excellent quality and cooked to perfection.

We stayed at this Inn in September. The room was fine although small but expecting that due to the age of the Inn. The bathroom was covered in mould and the sink was dirty. We had to ask twice and wait for two hours to obtain a small piece of soap. After we complained, we were moved to a larger... More

We stayed at The Lion for a few days in midweek. The rooms were very comfortable and clean. Food was excellent and the service was good. We liked the fact that we were given fresh milk to make tea/coffee in our room, instead of the usual UHT. We would recommend The Lion to everyone visiting the Yorkshire Dales or the... More

Hello, I am pleased you had a relaxing mid-week break. We like to impress with the small details as we know it makes a big difference, such as the fresh milk for your tea and coffee in your room. I noticed your room tip said to choose a room at the back of the hotel, due to noise levels, our... More

Stayed for a night on the recommendation of a colleague as I needed to be in the locality for an early meeting. Wasn't too sure about no parking provision but on arrival there were places in the market square available and plenty of car parks within "throwing" distance. The check in was very relaxed but professional and once checked in,... More

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

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
