First time to Leyburn and called in at The Golden Lion. Landlady was extremely friendly. Decided to have a Sunday lunch and was fantastic value for money. £7.50 for large and £6.00 for medium. Beautiful home made Yorkshire puddings. Will definitley try again.

We planned a cycle trip around North Yorkshire and booked two rooms here. The staff were very helpful and explained about the meals available (i'm a vegetarian) and the arrangements for bikes. We confirmed the booking nearer the date and were told that one of our two single rooms had been upgraded at no extra cost to a double room,... More
