We stayed overnight on a Saturday night for my birthday with our friends and had s really good time. The staff are first class and take time to chat and make sure you have everything you need. The rooms in the old coach house are quite small but perfectly laid out and the decor complements them well. We ate a... More

Having heard so much about the Blue Lion we decided to try it ourselves. Having made a last minute decision to visit we were fortunate to get the last double room in the courtyard. Although advertised as a petite double it was adequate for a one night stay. The only downside was that the room was cold even with the... More

We spent one night at the Blue Lion in February to celebrate my wife's birthday which just happens to be Valentine's Day too. I've written a separate review of the restaurant - which, in short, wasn't as good as expected given the many accolades it has received - so this review will focus solely on the accommodation. We were very... More

lots of lovely touches. Staff in smart, traditional attire. Nothing too much trouble. Knowledgeable and efficient. Menus displayed on blackboards above roaring log fires. No glass and chrome here, lovely and cosy traditional dales pub in a lovely village setting. Presence of large group dining in separate dining room did not affect service. Dishes had local ingredients and style eg... More

This village inn pub in North Yorkshire Dales is a few miles south of Leyburn. Essentially it is a dining pub with rooms. The main bar has a wonderful atmosphere and on a winter evening the log fires, rustic furniture and flickering candles create the perfect atmosphere for a romantic meal. The well cooked food is imaginative, with an emphasis... More

An on spec visit today still resulted in us being given a nice table, in the bar by the fire and where we witnessed The Blue Lion's usual clockwork efficiency and impeccable service. Paul was a little too busy with his shooting party to check on our dining experience but this is untypical and since food, ambience and attention from... More

On our arrival on Christmas Eve we were delighted to find a bottle of champagne waiting for us though we elected to have tea and cake in the snug first. Our Christmas Eve dinner marked the opener of four days of superb food. The menu was well balanced including seasonal featured options. We concluded that food this good had to... More

Just spent two nights at The Blue Lion. As well as having two fabulous meals we also enjoyed several drinks in the bar area by the fire. It was always a pleasure returning from a days walk knowing we had somewhere nice to go back too. This pub really is cosy with a nice atmosphere and good food, we tried... More

The Blue Lion lived up to what our friends had described, a charming country Hotel with good food and log fires ideal for a Autumn stay. We were in room 1 which had a pretty rear view from large window. The room was spacious and pleasant, possibley not a charming as others and could have done with a larger television... More

Me and my boyfriend booked to stay at the Blue Lion for one night as we were visiting somewhere near by. We were welcomed by a very friendly member of staff and shown straight to our cottage and I was blown away! A huge modern bedroom with countryside furnishings and a marvelous king size bed. It also had lovely bath... More
