“A wonderful place to stay over.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

A warm welcome from the outset from the staff, great atmosphere and the food was scrumptious! Would recommend the Hunters Chicken from the menu, the best I've experienced anywhere to date. The room was clean and extremely comfortable, the location perfect for a nice quiet walk to unwind, especially along the canal behind the church that lies by the Inn, Intend to go back again sometime.

A long working weekend staying at the White Lion was fabulous. Our room was clean and comfy. Dennis our dog was made very welcome and as a dog friendly pub it was really great not to find any evidence of previous four legged visitors having been in our room. Breakfast was perfect and the staff were really flexible regarding time - a lovely lazy lie in on our last day made our weekend even better.

Friends came for a meal with us on Friday evening when it was busy, vibrant, with a buzzing atmosphere. Our meals were all delicious- and the service was friendly and quick.

A great pub in a lovey location.

On arrival we upgraded to double room with breakfast a no extra cost. We were attending a Wedding 7 miles away and arrived before check in and the landlords kindly allowed us to check in early.
They even asked if we would like a late breakfast, allowing us a lie in (which nursed my hangover)! Room clean and spacious, ideal for a stopover.

Went to Kildwick for the weekend on our friends narrow boat and my wife and myself were introduced by our friends to The White Lion. On walking in, the landlord greeted us with banter from the start. Our friends have been going there for a few years and love the place. Great cask beers, great wine selection. We didn`t try the food which we`re told is very good. Atmosphere is very chilled resulting in us staying drinking for a number of hours. Very reasonable prices and a whole lot of fun had by all. We`ll definately return. Thanks guys.

Arrived at the White Lion on a very hot, busy summers day. After a few minutes wait I was served by a friendly member of the bar staff. We ordered sandwiches and they were plentiful & well presented. I would recommend a visit.

Have waten here 5 times and has been excellent everytime. Lovely beer garden and definitely an excellent place to eat on summers evening. Steak night on thursday excellant as usual. Service slower than usual but then it was very busy but was told before ordering would be 20 min which was good, at least they have the decency to be honest unlike some places who just take your order and leave you waiting ages. Will definitely be eating here again

ordered a jacket potato with cheese. It was like a new potato that small with a teaspoon of cheese and a small handfull of leaves was the salad. Very poor quality and value. What a shame as the pub and surroundings has such potential
