AWFUL does not even begin to describe this horrendous experience. We drove over forty miles for a special occasion ... memories of enjoying a visit long ago making us plan this way. What a bad, wrong, regrettable decision that was. The food was awful. I don't care how much is on my plate if I don't like any of it.... More

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

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...
