However each time we have been the restaurant has been quiet..... pub has been busy and with bar snacks but not the restaurant. ... people are... More

When we arrived the dining room was quite empty and the waitress very kindly gave us a choice of where we would like to sit. The service was very good and was quick. We had both starters and main courses and both were very nice and the wine and ale were nice.

Visited Monday evening on a whim. Enjoyed a three course meal and drinks for both of us for under £50. Drinks were surprisingly cheap for a restaurant. Service was lovely. Our waitress was attentive and friendly. She also gave us plenty of space. The atmosphere was lovely with quite background music. I was unable to finish any of the food... More

The old white Lion is a lovely old traditional pub in hebden bridge. It is warm and welcoming. It serves great food at reasonable prices. The staff are courteous and very professional. It has a good range of beers, cider and lagers on tap. Well worth a visit.

We went here for Sunday lunch. The meal was a set price for 2 or 3 courses. Very good value for money, and generous portions of well cooked and presented food. Staff were friendly and helpful, and we were not rushed at all.

We had a nice meal here but the service was something else! One overweight bartender humphing and puffing as he labored over pulling pints. Trying to pay the bill was an ordeal as the servers were rushing around and didn't have time to bring a bill. We had a date with the Great Bronte Debate and were anxious to leave... More

We visited the restaurant with friends for an evening meal. The food was good but as with other reviews some of it felt slightly over priced for what you got for your money, i.e. 7 small portions of scampi for close to £14. The steaks we had were great to be fair. The let down was the service. One of... More

Stayed here for two nights over the bank holiday weekend. Fantastic position, nice bar. The rooms are simple and a little outdated but it's all in with the age of the hotel and just adds to its charm. Breakfast according to my husband was the best he's had with locally sourced produce.

Thank Lollypolly89
