On entering the bar area there was no-one around or behind the bar to greet or serve us. Then a smartly dressed man appeared and assured us that someone would be wih us soon, I... More

My husband rang the Golden Lion and was told no problem we can accommodate you. We arrived at 8.40pm, 10 mins after the chef stops cooking but were fed much to our relief as we... More

I was grateful for a place to stay whilst cycling the Tour de France cycle route in heavy rain. The owners found me a room and hospitality was great. The full English breakfast was a delight with as much coffee or tea that you wanted. Local produce was used and the overall value excellent. Great location in front of the... More

The bathroom was partly refurbished but there was no shelf or towel rail - where do you put a damp towel? Tea and coffee provided but no glasses for water - medication is... More

We stopped off for lunch at the Golden Lion whilst touring in the Dales on Easter Saturday.We really enjoyed the well cooked food, my wife had the fish and chips and remarked that they were the best she had tasted. The service and the staff were first class.
