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. The room we... More

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

We visited the Lion for Sunday lunch a few weeks ago. We were disappointed that the bar snack menu wasn't available until 3.00pm so we opted for the 3 course lunch, I wish we hadn't bothered. The soup was luke warm, the pate wasn't too bad but the roast beef mains were awful and so was the pork. The beef... More

We had our Christmas lunch at the Lion. This is a very difficult thing to do well - but they excelled themselves. The Lion was heaving with diners of all ages but lunch was well organised, the service was attentive and prompt and the atmosphere was lovely. I have paid more than twice as much for Christmas lunch in the... More

We booked the day before our visit as the weather forecast was good so our aim was a bracing walk in the dales prior to arriving and so it proved. £59 in total for B&B was an absolute bargain. The inn was not overly busy and our room (number 7) was very spacious, with a large double bed, sofa, coffee... More
