The last time we were here was over 20 years ago and little has changed.This area was one of... More

A few glasses of red wine by the open fire in the middle of winter. The lion is the perfect English country pub; offering classic ales and fantastic wines to complement their delicious menu. Having stayed over night the rooms are extremely clean, and comfortable. Plan on staying here again and again. A 'must stop' whilst completing to Rosedale walk... More

Overnight stop on the Coast to Coast. Staying here is a no-brainer. Good evening meals and good beer. Rooms are comfortable and ensuite. Despite being busy it is generally quiet in the rooms. Breakfast was just OK, although there was loads, and the breakfast staff could have been a bit more cheerful. Still, recommended stop.

Walking The Esk Valley The Lion Inn proved a perfect stopping point for the night. Arriving late afternoon we were able to to dry off, having 'enjoyed' a wet July moorland walk, with a lovely pint. As I was preparing to head off again for the 4 mile walk to collect my car a staff member insisted on driving me... More

There were two couples here for a late lunch in May. Coolish but sunny day so the Lion Inn was a very welcome oasis on the Moors. Friendly, cosy place with lots of atmosphere - but watch your head on some low beams – and a great location on the moors. It was not too busy on this Wednesday. Nice... More

Three of us ate lunch at The Lion today and neither the food or service could be criticised in any way, The ordering went like clockwork and food arrived promptly and efficiently, served by very pleasant staff. The helpings were VERY generous to say the least, perfectly cooked and delicious. All three of us struggled to finish our meals due... More
