Ate here while staying in West Witton. The food quality was very good and there was a good choice of both vegetarian and non vegetarian meals - all written up on chalk boards around the top of the room. The service was good. I was impressed to be offered bread in a pub! maybe I got the wrong impression of... More

In the prettiest part of Yorkshire, there is a pub/hotel/restaurant here that is a belter. It is the best of everything English. The pub is traditional, with locals talking amongst themselves. The restaurant is out of the top draw. I paid £120 for a meal for three, with wine. I would have paid twice that and not complained. British food,... More

We tried to have a table at the restaurant on a Wednesday evening but it was full so we ate in the bar which was absolutely fine. Good menu with plenty of choice but you had to get up to look at it as it is was on boards on the walls! My husband really enjoyed his meal but I... More

We stayed for two nights in one of the Courtyard Superior rooms. Everything about our stay was perfect. The room was extremely comfortable, spotlessly clean, and well furnished. We had the usual tea and coffee facilities en suite with the offer of fresh milk or cream available at no extra cost from reception. The bathroom was newly refurbished with big,... More

Three generations and several strands of my family met here last week for Sunday lunch; the oldest member of our group was over 70 the youngest just 7. We ate in the dining room and had pre-booked which I would advise. The menu had the usual Sunday roast offerings and also other less traditional choices. We had three courses; all... More

We decided to plan a last minute overnight break and were drawn to the Blue Lion because of the dinner, bed and breakfast deal and the fact they allow dogs to stay over too. We went ahead and booked, arrived at our destination and were greeted with more than we expected. The guest room we were allocated was in the... More

We really enjoyed our evening meal here. The quality of the main courses was extremely good (smoked haddock/lamb) - and my cheeseboard to follow was a particular highlight! Although the venue was very busy - we could not fault the service. Good value and we would certainly recommend.

The Blue Lion is a very traditional Yorkshire Dales pub which just happens to have an exceptional restaurant. The food is excellent and the dining room is cosy and charming. Great wine list too. The rooms are spacious and nicely done with White Company toiletries! Perfect location for exploring the Dales and lovely market towns like Middleham, Masham, Leyburn and... More

Spent the weekend here, courtesy of my lovely wife. Exceptionally good overall, but one or two areas of potential improvement. The food, pricey...but worth it. Top tip...live in ...very good inclusive deal! Good bar prices...except the wine...very pricey...but again...for very good wine. Accommodation...room clean and well decorated, excellent bedlinen (excepting slightly soft but high quality down pillows) , and quality... More

We have just returned from the Blue Lion, to say we were disappointed is an understatement. The service from start to finish was appalling. We waited 1hr between eating our starter and the main course arriving, when it finally arrived it was Luke warm and mediocre, the 1 potato on my plate was hard and lukewarm. Not once were we... More
