We stayed in Haworth on a Saturday and Sunday night and though the place was buzzing during the day, it went very quiet at night. We ate in The Old White Lion on Sunday evening and were the only people in the restaurant. Not surprisingly, the service was prompt and the waitress was helpful. She made a note of how... More

We booked a table in the restaurant here, after reading the Tripadvisor reviews and checking the menu on the hotel website. We were given a lovely table for two by the window, so nice and light and all in a lovely setting. We both ordered the fillet steak, filled with Stilton and wrapped in bacon. I asked for mine slightly... More

I have to admit, I was apprehensive when I first sat down at the Old White Lion. An almost empty dining room... a very large menu... it just didn't seem promising. But our innkeeper had recommended it, so... Well, thank you innkeeper! Both our dinners were excellent (my husband had the duck, I went for the two cheese tarts on... More

I was swayed by all of the good reviews to take my elderly father here, for an impromptu meal. The main bar area was a little too 'claustrophobic' for us both, but there is a large, barn-like, area at the rear which had very few customers in. We placed our orders ... simple, basic options. After 20 minutes of waiting,... More

The lunch was gorgeous and reasonably priced. The building was beautiful and the historic information they displayed was very interesting, especially the links to the Bronte family.

My partner and I ate here tonight, nice place, comfortable seating, informal atmosphere. I ordered the lasagna which I sent back! There is an expectation of layers of pasta, but this was an entree that was oily cheesy gratin-type dish. My salad was covered in salad cream, they might have asked first what type of dressing I wanted, but to... More

Both meals were eaten nothing left on the plates good sign as my wife... More
