After reading the reviews we were really looking forward to dining here but sadly we were very disappointed. The service and welcome we received from the barman and waitresses was excellent and the décor was beautiful but that is where the dream came to an end! My husband had the vegetable Kiev, which proved dry and tasteless, but he managed... More

Have been a semi-regular here for a number of years now and not once have I been disappointed. The food is as outstanding as the service. We went on a Sunday, and it was pretty busy so I'd recommend phoning up and booking a table if there are more than two of you. There is plenty of parking available and... More

We were in the area having walked along the old railway line from the junction. So we came for a late lunch. For this sort of thing it's perfect - sandwiches, a kids yorkshire pudding, a warm beef bap and drinks. Large portions, decent beer and drinks and a warm place on a windy old day. I'm not sure I'd...

We came here on a recommendation having never heard of it before so without any expectations. Positives: My husband liked the lager, the location is breathtaking and the look of the pub itself is very quaint. Big negative: The food is shockingly bad! We, as a family enjoy our food and like to eat out quite often. This is one... More

Decided to try the Lion Inn on the spur of the moment. We went on a busy Sunday lunchtime but had booked a table in advance. Food was delicious and portion size was more than generous. Service was excellent and friendly. Tips: book a table to ensure getting a table in the restaurant rather than the bar. Don't have much... More

This an interesting pub set up in the North Yorkshire Moors. It has a very interesting series of bars and dining rooms with good open fires. when we were there the place seemed to be full of walkers. This perhaps influenced the meals. They were very good quality pub grub, but probably in deference to the 'walkers' as the main... More

a great spot to stay for either of the meals during the day. great place to spend a night or two, pub and restaurant always full of life. food portions very generious, vegetarian options good and not too limited compared with other pubs. always a place to at least pop in while we are visiting the area
