Lunched in the hotel bar area which is dated decor wise, but full of atmosphere. Very friendly and efficient staff. Great selection on the menu and good range of drinks on offer. Portions were very generous and the food was beautifully cooked and presented. We visit Northallerton fairly regularly and The Golden Lion will be our regular stop off and... More

Stayed at the Golden Lion for 1 night on business. The hotel is right in the middle of Northallerton and so is handy for local pubs and restaurants (try the ' Aroma' just around the corner; cracking Indian / Bangladeshi food).The room was clean and comfortable and the shower passed the 'decent shower' test . The staff very pleasant, welcoming... More

The goujons were hard and tasteless, the soup bland and the accompanying bun cold hard and stale. Onto the carvery, it looked ok but... More

dropped off for lunch today and had an excellent sandwich, best in 2 weeks holiday. Had ham, cheese and tomato sandwich on wholemeal bread and it came with crisps, coleslaw, and salad. Excellent value meal for £4.70.

Stopped for lunch today. Chose the ham and egg mayo on granary bread and it was by far the best sandwich I've ever had!!!!!! Shocking, I know but it was bulging with filling, had crisps and salad with a dressing. Brilliant and not at all pricey

Had a great meal here. The menu was large, plenty of selection for vegetarians. Had a starter and a main, plus a few drinks came to about £25. The hotel itself was clean and inviting. Will definitely visit again.

I've eaten here three times and have enjoyed each occasion. The staff are attentive the place is clean and if you get tipsy you can always stay the night. More importantly the food here is consistently above average and worth popping in for lunch with the better half. I think their prices are very competitive too.

We have visited the Golden Lion 4 times now, this in itself tells we're happy. We did have an issue once with the room we were offered but this was sorted out straightaway and a suitable alternative offered. The rooms can be noisy, the market sets up in front of the hotel on Saturday mornings from very early. The night... More

Called in for a drink or two on a evening out following recommendation from a friend. Lovely bar space with a great atmosphere. The room was nicely decorated. Helpful and friendly staff. Drink prices were very reasonable considering the venue.

Met up with relatives to have a midweek lunch and chose the christmas one. The terraine starter turned out to be a bog standard pate which didnt taste of anything, the bread and chutney were nice enough. Chose turkey which was nice and it had stuffing, one tiny sauasage and a tiny cranberry tart with it. They only accompanied it... More
