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

Called in for Sunday lunch while staying in Settle. Staff very welcoming & helpful. Good menu, served very quickly & efficiently with superb food in a relaxed atmosphere. Given time to enjoy our lunch without feeling rushed. A very good lunchtime experience. Highly recommended. Bob Bate Buckinghamshire

We stayed here for a walking weekend and really enjoyed our visit. The staff were great, we did have a minor problem with our room bookings, but this was sorted out without too much hastle. The place had a very nice relaxed feel and the food and beer was really good. Our bedroom was fine and had everything we needed.... 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

Enjoyed a nice meal at the Lion on our first night in the Dales. Very nice pub, with a small menu but good food. Price was not bad for a restaurant that in the South would be significantly higher. Worth a visit

Thank you for taking the time to review your visit to the Lion. I'm a bit confused when you say a 'small menu', maybe you never saw all four of our menus? Thank you again, Hayley Mace and all the team at the Lion More

Called in mid-week while visiting Settle. We chose lunch from the 2-course "Market" menu and were very pleased indeed. The quality of the food and the standard of the service exceeded expectations . Will certainly call again.

I usually end up in the Lion when I take my dog for a walk, we are both made to feel very welcome in this lovely town center pub. Dog biscuits on the bar and towels to dry a wet dog make this the best dog friendly pub I've ever been in.It has a friendly atmosphere with open fires, fine... More

Staying at the Lion for a couple of nights whilst walking the three peaks was excellent. Very comfortable rooms excellent food and friendly staff. Great value for money. The one and only negative point I could think of is the extractor fan in our shower room was extremely noisy and so was the room next doors. This would not put... More

Called in for lunch Saturday 14 June, ordered 2 x pints and both were sour. To be fair they were changed without fuss for 2 other beers. One of the beers was fine however the other one was again sour. Not a good start for an obviously upmarket hotel with prices to match. Had a look at the menu and... More

Thank you for taking the time to review your visit. I apologise about the beer, however we do test our beer every morning and throughout the day, we had been selling numerous pints of the beer you ordered with no complaints. We are absolutely fine about changing a pint if it isn't to the guests taste, which is what we... More
