The food and service will not disappoint, both really are excellent – you will definitely be well looked after. Prices are a little on the high side but you get what you pay for and I’m certainly not complaining. Also a good selection of class dishes. Make sure you book a table as some in the bar had long delays... More

Read about this place whilst staying in another 'Great Inns of Britain' so decided to book a two night break as a birthday treat for my husband. After I had booked, there appeared a few less favourable reviews on Trip Advisor so I was a little anxious before we came. I shouldn't have been! When booking, I had rung and... More

I've stayed here several times - usually in the same room. couldn't get it this time (just for 2 nights) - there was a shooting party in. But I had one of the little courtyard/cottage apartments which was every bit as good and nice and quiet away from the main building. Food is excellent at The Blue Lion and there... More

This is a great place , full of character and charm. The food is excellent and good value. And in gods own country. Open fires, a good pint and a fantastic menu . I'm sure there are others equally as good in the area but this one seems to have it for me . Locally sourced produce along side local... More

Its over 17years since we last stayed here, it was the day of Princess Diana's funeral, relevant as HRH wales uses the Blue Lion occasionally when Grouse shooting locally. Anyhow, now that I have finished laughing at 'Yorkshireman 1234's review, clearly someone who does not understand good kitchen, he seems to have no idea of how Grouse should be and... More

I had heard great things about the food at the blue lion inn for years but always palmed it off for another restaurant that i know i love. I decided to take me fiancé out to the blue lion instead of my usual the crab and lobster in asenby as they were fully booked for a wedding. On arrival the... More

We haven't been to the Blue Lion in over ten years and it is still wonderful. Warm, welcoming and delicious food. We went with our children for dinner, the dinning room is classic, like we are at home but so much better because I have not had to cook! We will be going again, perhaps every few months for that...

We returned to The Blue Lion for the first time for a few years to find that it is even better than before. We had a room in the house rather than the annexe - maybe not as big but probably more comfortable and on a wet night no need to take precautions against the elements. We ate in the... More

We booked a two night stay and invited friends along. When we arrived we were shown to our room in the courtyard which was of a good size, had soft white towels and nice toiletries. However, the door had to be locked to stay closed and the paint was peeling in the bathroom. There were cobwebs and spiders in the... More
