“what a welcome sight”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 31, 2012

.....popped in for a soft drink and a plate of chips to top up our energy supplies as we were cycling in the area. Was very surprised by the number of people inside as we arrived.....knew the food must be worth it as The Lion is quite remote. Although we only had a snack the diners food look great.

“Truly Yorkshire portions!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2012

We planned to walk to Blakey Ridge from Rosedale but were diverted by a visit to some Tearooms at Dale Head Farm so drove up to The Lion instead. It was Saturday night and very busy but we found a table and were served quite quickly considering how busy it was. The food was very good and piping hot - can't beat their steak and ale pie! A woman at the next table ordered a prawn salad and it was ENORMOUS! It seemed to be served on a tray rather than a plate! A really great atmosphere in The Lion as ever and spectacular views. A perfect stop for walkers with appetites!

“Location!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2012

Stayed here on the C2C. Room was fantastic, the location is great,very romantic. I had to give it a good score for service as most of the young staff were lovely and very helpful but one senior waitress was more than just offhand. The food was good but not exceptional
