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

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
