This is a very good inn - my wife says it was cute - and it had new bathrooms. The food was excellent. Having accommodation, food and drink in one place is great when doing the C2C walk. However, I wasn't paying close enough attention to the distances involved when walking from Richmond (especially so since there is a detour... More

This was a fantastic pub to eat at. Firstly service is spot on, staff are very friendly. The food is right on the money for pub grub. It's very reasonably priced for a the quality. I personally had the ribs and the kiev, but tried the lamb and it was fantastic. We sat with a party of nine, served quickly,... More

We stayed for one night last Saturday. Having driven six hours to have a meal with the family I was anxious that the 'village' accommodation arranged for us would be OK, but this place surpassed all my expectations. We were made to feel welcome from the moment we arrived and the staff couldn't do enough to help. The food was... More

Stayed at The Golden Lion over the Easter weekend when visiting family. We have stayed at many places around and about the area over the years, but this definitely beats them all. Value for money, we really couldn't fault this bed and breakfast. Large clean room with very comfortable large double bed. Great breakfast freshly cooked. Dinner was excellent on... More

All I can say is good things about our two night stay at Golden Lion. We were a little apprehensive as it was quite a bit cheaper than some other places in the area; but it was fantastic; and superb value for money. The room was lovely. Very clean, bed very comfy bed, and the shower was amazing. There were... More

Beautiful and idyllic location nestled in the Yorkshire moors, this is well worth the drive. Very busy pub and restaurant with traditional ales, a decent menu offering classical fare with modern twists. Competitive prices and great with the kids - couldn't fault it at all. Really impressed for our first time and will return. Well done indeed.

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
