We were pleased that we stopped here on our way to a National Park nearby for lunch. There was a choice of three pubs within sight of each other but we looked at the menu outside and chose The Golden Lion. The starter of calamari was enjoyed by all of us and the main from the Specials board of slow... More

Very accommodating as many of our party came in late, and later still! Great atmosphere and service. Very nice ales and good variety. Great Sunday lunch, no beef left unfortunately but we were late in the day so I can certainly forgive that. Chicken was really good, everything nicely cooked and one fully satisfied table for 11! We'll be back... More

Nice homely little pub with great food. Visited on a Wednesday night... The slow cooked daube of beef was excellent... served with a rich gravy, mashed potatoes and cabbage... Mouthwatering delicious. Excellent substantial goat's cheese starter. Reasonably priced. Quality and quantity of food very good. Nice place. Already recommended to friends and family and I will revisit in a couple... More

Another fantastic visit to this quaint pub for lunch. The staff are always welcoming and friendly and there are not enough words to describe the food, the only trouble with us is we always have the same woe betide if they ever take the salmon fishcake or chicken kiev off the menu. As it was just into the new year... More

We've stayed here a couple of times while visiting relatives in the N-E. We had the same room - room 5 - each time and it's a little odd. The bedroom is only slightly larger than the bed and there are no windows - as I say, a little odd. However the bathroom is absolutely wonderful - enormous with a... More

This is a great place to stay (fabulous rooms) and all the meals I have had here have been excellent. The staff/owners are lovely and very helpful too. Osmotherley is a beautiful North Yorkshire village too - though parking can be difficult.

We've just come back from 4 nights staying at this lovely, friendly pub. Our room was great - huge bed, wonderful shower - quiet and dark so that we slept like logs. Freshly cooked breakfast in the morning. We ate here three times , twice with family members . The food and service were wonderful - we were especially impressed... More

11 of us ate here on a Friday evening and the food was great, good portion sizes, cooked well and large sides to share. They kept it simple, nothing too flairy and it worked very well. Good, well kept beers as well. The bar was very busy and made for a vibrant atmosphere, maybe a bit too noisy for a... More
