The food was excellent as was the service particularly on our last night which was Thursday 10th November when we had a really helpful waitress & ourselves as well as our two dogs were made very welcome. We would especially recommend the curry.

We called into this pub late in the afternoon for food after touring the dales for a day out. On first impressions, the room was dark and the whole place was tired looking in need of modernizing and/or brightening up. We ordered food which we didn't have to wait to long for and it was nice enough served really hot... More

We had parked in the village and completed a 6 mile circular walk climbing up to the top of Penyghent, the 3rd highest of the 3 Peaks. on a warm September day. On our return to the village we were after a well deserved pint or two of local real ale to celebrate. The Crown Inn down the road had... More

Real ales were served cloudy and off. Barman was reluctant to swap and when swapped to a different ale that was also off... Pub seems run down and poorly run which is a real shame given the location at the bottom of Pen-Y-Ghent

We stopped overnight at The Golden Lion while walking the Pennine Way. The accommodation was small with very little room between the twin beds. However, the en-suite was large and airy. Friendly staff. Good beer at reasonable prices.

You'll only be here for the three peaks walk, if your not go ANYWHERE else for food. This is a basic bunk house and buffet pub. The food, imagine school dinners where quantity is paramount and is still depressingly overpriced for what it is. If you have time and want a nice meal make the effort and go else where.

One of two pubs in the village friendly locals who welcomed you in for a beer and a chat, brilliant...!! Staff friendly and welcoming and geared up for the many walkers.... Good choice of beers, and basic bar menu, with a fair selection to choose from.

I'll keep this just to the highlights. Myself and three friends were trying to run the pennine way and my family had come to meet us on route and take us for a meal out. A lasagna was missing for one of my friends when the meal came out so I asked the waiter if he could tell the chief... More

My friend and I had booket a twin bedded room and got a tiny one where the beds stood as a double bed. We could only push them 20 cm apart. The room was so small, that my suitcase had to be placed in the window next to my bed, and my friend had to use the window in the... More
