On the C2C we wanted a stop in Osmotherly and this pub delivered. From the outside it looks nothing special but the rooms at the rear are of a good quality. Our overhead rain shower was the best of the whole walk. The meals were good pub food. I am always a little wary about staying in pubs but no... More

Good sized ground floor twin room with decent sized beds and a lovely large wetroom. Just what you need after a particularly long days... More

Went last night for a business meeting with partners. Our favourite table reserved. Restaurant full spilling over to the pavement outside yet the food was excellent. There is nowhere I know that does a sirloin like the Golden lion. Quite simply perfect. Order rare and then it's about MEDIUM RARE. Staff are excellent. Thanks Chrisie Nick and Lindsay. Simply the...

Although Osmotherley is slightly off the Coast to Coast path, this was very worth it! The owner seems to have everything under perfect control; the room is newly refurbished and with a great bathroom, the restaurant serves gastronomic treats, and breakfast was an excellent start for next day's walk.

Mid-way across the Coast 2 Coast and arrived in Osmotherley with limited expectation. Wow the Golden Lion did impress. We stayed in Room 2 - brand new decor, huge bed and large walk in shower. We ate dinner and it was one of the best "walkers meals" of the entire trip. The started of garlic prawns, grilled sardines and goats... More

I am so glad I stayed in Osmotherly on my coast to coast walk and this is because of the Golden LIon, and because Osmotherley is such a beautiful village.! My stay here was superb. The room was spotless and absolutely beautiful. The bathroom was the best of my entire walk and the shower was voted number 1 shower! So... More

After an increasingly stressful and ultimately unsuccessful attempt to find somewhere to stay in Northumberland, B and I grudgingly decided to cut our road trip short and head south and home. Fortunately she is a much clearer thinker than I and as we whistle down the motorway moodily contemplating 'sandwich supper and the television screen', she suggests a night at... More

We visited the golden lion tonight with relatives from Bristol who, on their first visit felt the place had really something special. The friendly atmosphere food and service were excellent and my mother who is not easy to please, pronounced the calves liver, delicious and the best ever.
