Visited with a friend on a Tuesday early evening, lovely little country pub with lots of character and very cosy however on entering no staff were visible and no one manning the bar, we took a table and had to go hunting for some menus ourselves, decided what we wanted and approached the bar to order, still no staff manning...

We passed this pub on a Weds whilst having a drive out and decided to call in for lunch. It was just gone 12 and already busy. We both chose the steak n mushroom pie which with chips, peas and fresh carrots. The pie was absolutely lovely and tasty. The pie itself would have been enough as the portions are... More

The Lion Inn Pride themselves (Pride - get it!) on serving the more undiscerning customer and are far and away in a class of their own. There were so many things wrong that I can't list them all, so as a favour to the Inn I have developed a new menu for them. Enjoy :) STARTERS Prawn Cocktail Freshly bought... More

The Lion Inn to me is the best pub i have ever visited, the friendly staff, the warm atmosphere (especially when the fires are lit) This pub is so welcoming, as soon as you walk through the doors you are home! you approach the bar to find an enormous array of beers, lagers, and ciders, then there is the food....

Every time I go back to my home links in Yorkshire, I visit the Lion Inn. This is of the most welcome oasis on a cold, windy and often snowy North Yorkshire Moors. Saying that I have also visited in the height of Summer and it is great then too. The food is good pub grub with plenty of selection... More

Having spent the day driving around the moors, driving through countless villages trying to find somewhere to have lunch, and being told sorry we've stopped serving lunch. We carried on driving...... We stumbled across The Lion Inn, the car park was almost full & hoped they did food. Wow, what a place!!! It's located at the top of The Yorkshire... More

Wow!!! First time I'd been here despite living in ryedale all my life! At first looks the menu seems expensive however when our meal arrived the size was more than worth the price. My partner had gammon with home made chips pineapple and huge side salad. I had the pork fillet with carrots peas and potato croquettes. The meal was... More

Six of us had lunch and a few drinks here when doing the Coast to Coast walk. It was a perfect day weather-wise and the beer garden (and car-park) was packed. The whole place was very busy but we did not have to wait too long for our food. The food was good quality pub fair and everyone enjoyed their... More

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
