We stayed at The Lion at the start and end of a walking break. Our first room, although dated was ok but the second room was very disappointing. It was very small, dated, had grubby paintwork and a repair patch on the ceiling that hadn’t been painted over and had a minuscule bathroom which felt cold and damp. However, our... More

Lovely big rooms and lots of space for our toddler. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Atmosphere was good. The staff after some negotiation made us a decent kids dinner of sausage, dauphinois potatoes and vegetables. But the sausage was very greasy and the carrots quite bland. Downside - the food was very greasy and a lot seemed to be... More

Thank you for finding the time to write your review. Our dauphinoise potatoes are made with double cream, we would not recommend that they are served with sausages as the fat content in the dish would be very high. Kind Regards, Chef More

Stopped off for a bite to eat on the way through to Kendal. Nice friendly service as soon as we hit the bar. The wife ordered the Fishermen's and I went with the Butchers platter. Served on slate with plenty to pick through. One of the best platters I've had for a long time washed down with a good pint... More

We planned to stay just one night, but changed our plans so we could stay longer. Very homely, comfortable and friendly place in a great location. Dog friendly too, if that's what you want. We'll be going again. Great location for visiting the beautiful dales. Attractive décor throughout the hotel and great brekkie

Excellent lunch. The beef and onion pie of the day was all gone but we were recommended to try the Wainwright beef pudding Wow that was good. Also we had the sea food linguini at least 8 plump juicy mussels, big prawns, salmon and a lovely flaky white fish, and fish and chips. All excellent value and good sized portions.... More

Booked a 3 night stay through Booking.com, for a walking trip in the Yorkshire Dales. Hotel is right in the centre of the town, but has no parking. There is a car park about 100 yards down the road by the petrol station, but the secret is to use the rail station car park which charges £2.00 for 24 hours... More

Thank you so much for taking the time to review your stay at the Lion and the surrounding area. All your points have been taken on board and are being actioned. The kitchen is now in the middle of an upgrade, we are hopeful that with better equipment service will be quicker. The downstairs works will (fingers crossed) be finished... More
