The 300 year old facade of this former coaching inn hides the fact this family run hotel combines charming olde world features with thoroughly modern facilities. Situated at the top of the famous cobbled street, walked by the Revd. Patrick Bronte and his famous family. In more recent times as illustrated on TV in Hovis advertisements. This is very much an establishment where food and drink are taken seriously, and dispensed along with hospitality in good measure. Warmth, comfort and a relaxed atmosphere prevail throughout the 14 en-suite bedrooms, beamed bars, restaurant and oak paneled lounge.Freshly prepared food is provided by the highly qualified chefs. Keeping up with modern trends, without ignoring the popularity of old favourites. Featured in major food guides the Gimmerton restaurant is open every evening. An extensive range of reasonably priced bar meals being available in the cosy bars, where real ales are prominent. Exceptional value breaks available both mid-week as well as weekends throughout the year.

I picked the Old White Lion because of its location and proximity to the Bronte Parsonage Museum. No doubt, the hotel is in an excellent location, just minutes from the Museum and steps from the parish church. The hotel is an old building and has an olde worlde feel. Breakfast

Nice old hotel. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Our room was quite small and the decor stuck in the 80's,however it was lovely and warm and clean. Bed extremely comfy. You certainly won't get a better location either, right at the top of Haworths cobbled Street!
