My brother and his wife came to look after the house while we were away. They visited the Golden Lion and were very well looked after.Good beer friendly atmosphere and an open fire. What more do you need in a pub!

We left Hawes and decided to drive through flooded roads to Leyburn, where we hoped for a variety of restaurants and shops. The Golden Lion seemed a good place for a light lunch.

The hotel was reopened 15 months ago by its current tenants after being boarded up for some considerable time. We were made very welcome and were surprised at the... More

Called in on a lovely sunny October afternoon, and sat in the outside area with the dogs soaking up the sun. Lovely pint and kir royale, great sandwiches and all at a reasonable price. Will call in again when next in area.

After being let down by the " Black Swan" pub just up from the "Golden Lion" we inquired to see if they could accommodate 6 adults, 3 children and 1toddler for lunch. The staff were so helpful and friendly, and the lunch was just what we all hoped for, Tender meat, fresh veg etc. Anyone with children and buggies would... More

I booked about ten months ago and the lovely Debbie has always kept in touch and was great help about parking during this busy weekend. We stayed in a lovely twin room overlooking the market square. Lovely comfy beds and very clean.... More
