We stayed here as a special deal three nights for the price of two. Condition was, we had to have a main meal two of the three nights in their restaurant. This place is everything a good pub should be. Staff can't do enough for you and are very warm and welcoming. The one drawback we found was, we didn't... More

We stayed here for one night with friends, but would have loved to have stayed longer to explore the beautiful countryside. The Blue Lion is a high class but friendly inn. Lots of history within the building and surrounding area which is detailed in the room guide. We had dinner in the hotel which was excellent - lots of local... More

We have visited The Blue Lion many times over a 20 year period, both for overnight stays and just for lunch, as a family with young children and as a couple. We have never been disappointed. The rooms are light and comfortable and the food is mouth-wateringly delicious. As for the staff, they are professional, courteous and go the extra... More

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
