Nice atmophere and a good selection of drinks. Local beers on tap and soft drinks for the drivers. Real fires in both rooms which made it feel very cosy. Didn't stay for food however it looked a very comprehensive menu. We were not staying here so can't comment on the rooms.

Stayed to do some walking in the Dales, great location, lovely rooms and the food is very very good. Walked up to Buckden Pike and the war memorial, great circular route via Buckden. Bar area is very nice, nice beer and good wine selection. Food was well presented, warm and very high quality.

what a find. A special little place that gives you a perfect mix of a small country inn with really good quality food and service. Excellent situation for local walks in stunning scenery. Lovely couple running the place make you feel at home. Will definitely return.

Excellent one night stay - young hosts who offered excellent service Refurbished to a high standard - stripped back interior but retains the feel of a classic Yorkshire dales pub, stone floors and roaring fire Cosy room again of high standard Better than average pub food Superb situation for walks and cycling

What a wonderful place to stay, we will definitely be returning. We had one of the larger rooms with a very comfortable king size bed.

The food...

Amazing location with amazing views. Good parking right next to the stream. Lovely & warm as you walk in with two log fires burning. Room was pretty small but had everything we need and could want really. As its an old building the floors are pretty thin so we did get woken up a few times by other guests. We...

We have just returned from an overnight stay at The White Lion, visiting with another couple and their labrador (there are a limited number of "dog friendly" rooms). The White Lion is located in a beautiful area of Yorkshire, nestling close to Buckden Pike with the river Wharfe running through the valley just the other side of the road. Having...

We stayed in the dog friendly room downstairs at this wonderful pub. Lovely cosy bar/restaurant with roaring fire. Superb walks in stunning countryside.

Absolute gem and wouldn't hesitate to recommend. Will definitely be...
