Family and friends travelling from Peterborough, Gloucester and around Leeds met up at The Lion for a meal on Friday 24th July 2015 for a wedding the next day, about 28 of us. We had a lovely meal and were looked after so well. Thank you to all involved for making this evening special.

The Lion is a wonderful old coaching house with lots of character. We went as a group of 5 couples for 3 nights. The rooms were brilliant really big and airy. The staff were fantastic so helpful and pleasant and the bar staff and waiters/waitresses are lovely. The breakfast was amazing you couldn't ask for anything more and served with... More

My partner and I love the outdoors and walking, and this pub/restaurant/hotel is in a perfect location. It is in a lovely little village and serves by far the best food, and reasonably priced. When your tired and cold it's great to warm yourself in front of the log burner. It is dog friendly and even has towels to dry... More

Just returned from a 2 night stay at this friendly hotel, the best thing about this place is the staff, they are more than welcoming and ready to help. Good food at the restaurant and very reasonable. Rooms are small and a little dated, the shower in our room really did need replacing, however. overall, a pleasant stay in a... More

We visited here twice for dinner whilst we were staying in Settle. Such a lovely cosy pub. great atmosphere and even better food. We had the sharing boards and ceasar salads- really yummy food. Great selection of drinks and always nice and busy! We will be back.

My wife and I visited on a Tuesday night in July. We had a very good experience, a warm welcome, good food, although we were told that one particular item was off the menu only to see it served half an hour later. This however, although slightly annoying at the time, did not spoil our experience. Good food, good beer,... More

Cosy place, very well ran, from what I saw the oldest member of staff was early 20's. There were about 6 staff, very well presented, very courteous and everyone knew what job they were doing with precision. We had dinner there..... Very nice. The rooms were small but extremely clean. We left early on Saturday am for the Three Peaks... More

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
