called in the afternoon for a couple of drinks, not food. Still looks very inviting and comfortable but was quiet, no one was eating, we left at about 5pm and it was still only two people eating, not the cheapest place for food and ever time we've been there are different staff. Should be a wonderful pub as has the... More

The Lion is lovely pub. It's been very tastefully decorated and I felt very relaxed here. The staff were very warm and friendly, I couldn't fault the service at all. The food is also beautifully presented, fresh and cooked very well but it just lacked flavour. I tried 3 dishes and they all failed to deliver anything above average. The... More

This is a lovely Hotel for a weekend break, really friendly helpful staff, nothing is too much trouble, roaring fires, animal friendly even down to the towels placed by the door to dry your dog off. the food was excellent and plentiful. The only drawback is the noise between the rooms which is horrendous, you always know what the people... More

From the moment we walked in to the Lion & were greeted with a warm welcome, we were impressed. Our room (14) was spacious & very well presented with a great bathroom. There was some traffic noise from the trucks passing by but it didn't keep us awake at night. The bar offered a range of real ales & the... More

The Lion is in a good location, is clean and the staff are very welcoming. But, this is an establishment which can't make up its mind whether to be a pub, hotel or restaurant - and suffers on all counts. As a pub, there is a good range of ales but when we were there on a Saturday night, they... More

Despite only booking for 8 and turning up over an hour early, we were made very welcome at The Lion. The second we walked through the door and were greeted by a roaring log fire, and a pile of clean, dry towels for the dog (who we had left in the car, just in case!) we knew that this pub... More

We met family for a birthday lunch at the Lion at Settle. The restaurant is pleasantly decorated with plenty of seating without diners being on top of each other. There is a good menu and a specials board. The food was very nice, it being a Sunday most of us had beef or lamb but there were nice vegetarian options... More

Food was disappointing, having been recommended by friends. Steak and ale pudding was bland - lacked flavour. Liver was of the crumbly textured variety and slightly overcooked. Having to pay extra for vegetables to accompany the liver seemed a bit of a rip off, especially when we just got carrots and undercooked sprouting broccoli. Apple crumble dessert was good, thankfully.

A few friends went along to the Lion for an evening meal Food average, wine by the glass rather expensive £6.10! Just felt towards the end of the evening we were rushed, it appeared that the waiter wanted to go home and the table had to be cleared.

Thank you for your comments. I do apologise that you felt you were being rushed towards the end of the night. I shall see the staff members who was working that night and have a word as this is not what we are about at all. Not all of our wines are £6.10 by the glass; we have a wide... More

Recently stayed at the Lion hotel for the first time, though we have visited the bar previously, after a cheeky ask by myself they very kindly extended a good B&B rate, we had an evening meal which was excellent, breakfast again excellent (I'd recommend the full cooked Yorkshire), staff were very friendly. My only complaint (sorry) is that our room... More
