Stayed here before Xmas and could have bet my savings it would not stay afloat a year. Beer really poor and place was empty- basically a Shadow of its former self since enterprise inns got their hands on the place. They have completely destroyed it. Not even the best, most dedicated landlords have a cat in Hells chance of making... More

Back in June we booked a two night stay at the White Lion in Cray for 15th and 16th August. We booked early as we knew accommodation would be busy in the area at the time we wanted to go due to the Kettlewell Scarecrow Festival being on. When we turned up on 15th August there was a sign outside... More

Called in here for a pint or two or three here whilst walking the Dalesway in June. Good selection of real ales and received a warm and friendly reception. Didn't eat here but would definitely recommend calling in for a drink.

This is definitely a case of 'don't judge a book by its cover'. We tried several pubs in the area to eat and this had the best choice menu, friendly good service and the food was excellent. We visited twice and my party all had different meals. Every meal was excellent. Pub itself could do with a little brightening up... More

Great pub & setting with very sunny terrace. Traditional atmosphere. On the route of the recent Tour de France Grand Depart in beautiful Yorkshire. Needs to improve coffee though. Good parking by stream on and on the route of the Buckden Pike walk.

Arrived here recently with a group of friends for an overnight stay. Very warm welcome from staff who showed us to our rooms. My room was very clean and tidy, as was the en suite bathroom. Bed was nice and comfortable and a good nights sleep was had. The shower was a slight let down. We couldn't get anything more... More

Dropped into the White Lion Inn during a visit to Barnard Castle last bank holiday, after deciding to take the scenic route back. During our visit we decided to book a couple of nights midweek stay in June. Two nights for the price of one (so long as you dined at the White Lion in the evening). The owner Tim... More

Had a great weekend. Lovely hosts. Looked after like a king . Breakfast was just what great just what was needed to set the day off and the evening food was really good. Hope they can go from strength to strength. Highly recommended.
