The Lion sits on the High Street in the middle of Settle. No car park but public parking is close by, and you don't pay for the main square. You walk into the large bar with log fire, some comfy chairs and tables spread through the 3 areas. Selection of well kept Thwaites's beers and decent wine selection. The atmosphere... More

Thank you for taking the time to review your visit to the Lion. We are pleased you enjoyed your meals. You said the room wasn't great, as it didn't have a view. None of our rooms have views, the only views they have is of the main road or the courtyard. However we look forward to you returning. Thanks again,... More

A real nice little treasure we found here and we'll definitely be coming back again!! Welcoming of dogs and same sex couples is a perfect match for our requirements and the staff were really friendly and helpful. A great place to stay. Great food, really nice restaurant, smart bedroom and very nicely refurbished modern bathroom. We have had difficulty in... More

Thank you for taking the time to review your visit to the Lion. I am pleased you enjoyed your meals, all our food products are fresh on the day and are cooked to order, so I'm quite unsure how your vegetables tasted like they had been 'hanging around all day'. All of our staff are local and come from the... More

We stayed in Settle for two weeks and visited the Lion almost every day. The food was good (large portions!) and the staff were really nice. There was always a welcoming fire. Two nights we saw local musicians who were wonderful. We'd like to stay in the Inn sometime. Do the rooms come with a dog?

Thank you for a great review. I am pleased we were your choice of 'local' while you were away for 2 weeks! It would be a great idea if the rooms came with dogs, maybe something I can persuade my manager to do... ( I can dream ). We hope next time you decide to stay with us! Thanks again.... More

Ate here on a Sunday evening & were greeted with the words " have you been told what's not on the menu" resulting in 50% of the menu choices not available. Then after placing our order they managed to get this wrong. We decided to try again two days later & were greeted with words " we can't take your... More

Firstly I apologise that you were greeted with those words, our greeting is usually friendly and welcoming. This particular day was extremely busy resulting in selling out of a few of our dishes and we were letting guests know before they had chance to look at the menu just in case they ordered a dish we did not have.

Nice clean room and very friendly staff. The food was very nice overall but the breakfasts were fantastic. It's a great location too. I got a fantastic rate through my gym membership at Cottons in Knutsford
