Settle is a pictoresque little town in the Yorkshire Dales and is a good place to stay in the region. The Lion fits right into that picture. It is on the main street of Settle (with traffic being a potentially minus if you have a room in the front - we didn't) and looks like the main pub in town,... More

We visited for our last drink of the night after visiting other pubs in Settle. I wouldn't say this was the best one, but it was certainly very nice. The only thing I would say is that the range of drinks on tap is limited to stuff that real ale drinkers like and the prices were really high. Probably would... More

Thank you for your comments. We have 7 different ales on tap, which I think is a great range, also not forgetting about the huge range of world beers we have in bottles which makes plenty of choice for guests to choose from. Again thank you for your comments; we do hope you will return. Hayley Mace and all the... More

Hello, thank you for your review. I firstly have to apologise you had to wait a while for your order to be taken and secondly reading your comments about your 'pulled pork burger', to me this looks like a misunderstanding when the order was taken, we have a pulled pork sandwich on the menu and a pulled pork burger, I...

We've been to the Lion to eat several times but this was the first time we have stayed there's, we weren't disappointed. We had our dogs with us and the room catered for them ideally, lovely cool wooden floor in both the bedroom and bathroom. A pile of towels as you came through the door especially for wet dogs, unfortunately... More

Stayed here for two nights while watching the Tour de France. The bar was packed when we arrived on Friday evening, but the staff managed to find us a table for dinner, and the food was good. Our room was comfortable. We got up at 4.30 am to beat the road closures so missed breakfast on Saturday. We asked if... More

We do ask guests to come in late at night from the court yard, unfortunately this sounds like it wasn’t the case here, which I apologise for. I’m glad you found the room to be comfortable. Thank you and we hope to see you again in the near future. Hayley Mace and all the team at the Lion More
