Absolutely nothing to fault with this gorgeous little hotel set right in the centre of Haworth. Friendly welcoming staff, great pub with even greater pub food. Spotlessly clean comfortable rooms, with views over the valley to die for! Breakfast was perfect, great friendly service, and beautifully presented food. I know there are many hotels/pubs in Haworth, however for real value... More

What a find, we were in Haworth during the Tour de France weekend, and walked into town on Saturday night before the Tour cycled through on Sunday, it was totally mad and the hotel was full but after a little cajoling the head waiter managed to find us a table in the restaurant, (don’t worry because the bar menu is...

With being local we have visited The Old White Lion a number of times now and sat in the bar area, we are yet to try the main restaurant. We usually order gammon and chips that comes with a salad, fish and chips and the fish pie. All three dishes are amazing and plentiful. On one occasion we ordered the... More

Some of the most willing and enterprising hotel staff I have encountered. You can't fault the decor or facilities because they are exactly as you would expect from a small, traditional hotel in one of the most charismatic and beautiful villages in England. Good local food served very professionally and with a flourish. Oodles of places to visit - Hebden... More

I have stayed at the White Lion many times, and it never fails to impress. Excellent service from the staff, wonderful central location. Great rooms, well serviced. And the added bonus of incredible food in the bistro and pub menu. I wouldn't stay anywhere else.

Visited with friends for a meal after a number of months and was very pleased that the standard of food is as good as ever. Very good choice with competitive prices and a good choice of real ale. Good use of local produce seems to be the norm.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The 300 year old facade of this former coaching inn hides the fact this family run hotel combines charming olde world features with thoroughly modern facilities. Situated at the top of the famous cobbled street, walked by the Revd. Patrick Bronte and his famous family. In more recent times as illustrated on TV in Hovis advertisements. This is very much an establishment where food and drink are taken seriously, and dispensed along with hospitality in good measure. Warmth, comfort and a relaxed atmosphere prevail throughout the 14 en-suite bedrooms, beamed bars, restaurant and oak paneled lounge.Freshly prepared food is provided by the highly qualified chefs. Keeping up with modern trends, without ignoring the popularity of old favourites. Featured in major food guides the Gimmerton restaurant is open every evening. An extensive range of reasonably priced bar meals being available in the cosy bars, where real ales are prominent. Exceptional value breaks available both mid-week as well as weekends throughout the year. ... more   less
