The Old White Lion is situated at the top of Howarth's cobbled street. This makes it an ideal place to eat if you're visiting. Having eaten here on many occasions I found the standard of service has improved but it can still seem a little bit short staffed at busy periods. You have the choice of dining in the restaurant...

Located at the top of the cobbled Main Street in Haworth, it was everything that one could expect in a fine old pub! Good wholesome pub food in a lovely pub environment! It was recommended by the B&B owners where we were staying and it lived up to expectations. The White Lion has 2 sections - the bar area and... More

The food was cooked to perfection Wharfedale fillet (used to be called 'fillet steak of old England) huge steak, my wife had a fillet again cooked to... More

We went into this restaurant because it was close to our hotel and looked nice ... what a pleasant surprise! There are two areas, a bar area and restaurant. We went into the restaurant. We did the 3-course fixed-price menu. The food was fabulous - well-presented and delicious, using ingredients from the local area as much as possible. Portions were... More

Not only is this the tavern that Patrick Bronte frequented, right in the heart of Howarth, but the food is excellent too. Might have to book a table in peak season.

I stayed here for one night during a 2-day visit to Haworth. The staff were friendly and helpful at all times. The room was clean and cozy and had an excellent view of the town. I especially loved the bed. I also ate dinner here on my final evening. I ordered the venison pie which was absolutely fantastic. It was... More

Just returned from a really enjoyable weekend stay at The Old White Lion. Haworth is a quaint, pretty village with a chocolate box face, famed for it's association with The Brontes yet retains it's humble charm despite the large number of tourists. Given the literary association a fair number of those tourists hail from the chattering classes and I can... More
