A two night stay, yes the room had some marks from previous repairs and leaks, but the new owners are gradually getting everything sorted. Nice bedding, great breakfast and very friendly hosts - at reasonable prices. Give them a try and enjoy a Dales market town.

Has a great variety of food and drinks. Had a wonderful meal with my family. I can personally recommend the lamb shank! The staff are very friendly and the service given was excellent. Looking forward to the Sunday carvery which has been highly recommended to me.

Having stayed in the Golden Lion several times now over the last three years I have only good things to stay about the hotel, the staff and the meals. I have usually stayed for bed and breakfast and have been very happy with the accommodation and the full Yorkshire breakfast provided. Clean well appointed rooms have always been a big... More

It's the first time that we've been here. Lovely calm decor. Well spaced tables. Clean and tidy. We popped in for a quick drink. Good selection of wensleydale ales. First try of this brand. Very nice too. We'll be back to try the menu. This wasn't very varied but good pub grub.

Stayed here for one night for a get together with friends to celebrate a birthday. Room was large with a big en suite shower room, very clean with crisp white bed linen and very comfortable bed. The staff were really friendly and helpful. We had our evening meal there, pub grub tasty and reasonably priced and can't complain about the... More

The sign on the door said they were looking for a new chef. Not the greatest of starts. I ordered a simple ham, eggs and chips. Eggs were over cooked, ham very thinly sliced and a small portion, chips dry. The best part of the meal was the cup of tea. There was a long wait of 30 minutes. Maybe... More

Popped into here for a drink or two. Very friendly staff more than helpful. Nice cosy pub. Didn't have anything to eat but nice for a stop off to drink. There's a nice fireplace which would be good when its cold out doors. Decent menu as well

We had a lunch and drinks but, in all honesty, I'm sure we could have done better in Leyburn. Whilst the food was OK there was nothing inspiring about it to make you want to return......although we would have no complaints about the service
