Staff mostly quite young but very well trained. Room small but very comfortable and warm. Food decent pub grub and good selection of beers. No car park but plenty of room in the Market Place when we visited. Only slight criticism - bathroom had a light bulb out and a dirty glass left there.

This is my second visit to the Lion, the last time we went, it was really good along with the food. Our visit last night was very average, I don't know if it's under different management now but we won't be going back any time soon. I ordered the rib eye, I like steak and know when I get a...

After contacting your sister hotel in malham and being advised they had no rooms, they checked and said a room was available with yourselves well what a wonderful 24hrs Saturday we have had. From the moment we walked through your door we felt welcome. Fantastic staff, quietly attentive to my husband, myself and our Ickle big pup. We really appreciated... More

During a weekend at Settle, where we spent our days out walking we were keen to find a local pub where we could have a nice drink and chill out. We sat in front of the fire and had a drink, then moved to the restaurant for some pub grub. Staff were friendly, food was nice, and atmosphere was cozy!

Visited for an overnight stay. The rooms are tastefully furnished, immaculately clean with plenty of additional extras i.e toiletries,refreshments, fresh milk,hot water bottle etc. Staff are welcoming and were all pleasant throughout our stay. The bar area is friendly and relaxed. The restaurant offers a wide range of food to choose from all freshly prepared to order, again this area... More

Called in after a trip to the cinema at Giggleswick School towards the end of service. Staff pleasant and attentive, food arrived quickly and was hot and wholesome. No issues with food or service and very pleasant surrounding. Would revisit again. Menu prices reasonable and portion size above average.

Good food,generous portions @ fair price,friendly efficient service,good real ale in pleasant surroundings ! However I think perhaps screening off part of the main dining room would improve the ambience & make the bar area more cosy,as it... More

If you are going to stay in only one British hotel, make it The Lion in Settle. Situated right in the middle of historic Settle, a charming Yorkshire town, it offers spacious, modern rooms, a fully licensed bar, and a restaurant. There's a cosy sitting area with easy chairs around a fireplace downstairs that's a great place to have a... More

We spent two nights in the hotel. Very warm and comfortable with great food. I asked to change rooms and the receptionist moved us with no problems. We ate in both nights and the food was great... Tasty hot and well cooked. The room (6) was lovely and warm with loads of room. The guy who served breakfast was really... More

The Lion very quickly became our relaxing station in between walking everyday. We booked a house in Langcliffe and whilst out walking always found ourselves either settling down for a coffee, lunch or main meal with the odd pint of real ale in the Lion. The atmosphere over Christmas was fantastic! The welcoming committee on every visit was amazing, we... More
