Visited a few weeks ago and have been meaning to review ever since,

Out in the middle of nowhere and popular with walkers for obvious reasons. it has rooms although we didn't stay in them. We were told the food was good by someone at work so after a little wander around the moors we ventured inside.

The place is massive separate dining area, plenty of seating for bar meals or just a drink The actually bar itself is big and well stocked with a good variety of beers and ciders etc
on a nice day I imagine the view is very good and there are benches outside to take advantage of the scenery.
When we arrived we were told to go to table one in the restaurant slight problem that the tables aren't labelled up so we were stood around like lemons for a minute until one of the waitresses came over to direct us where to go.
The massive everyone will find something its the usual pub classics but the menu is double the size of most places.

After seeing a huge starter come out for one person on another table we decided on just having a main. We both ordered steak and they were huge! but cooked to just how we had asked them add to that they came with chips (more like chippy chips) peas, salad, onion rings and mushrooms. The mushrooms were my only problem with my meal as they weren't to my liking I think they may have been put in the friar so they were a bit greasy. Everything else was very good.

We finished with a couple of desserts another large portion of chocolate fudge cake and a white chocolate and raspberry cheesecake which was fine.

The steak came in around £18-£22 if memory servers which might seem expensive to some but with the location and massive portion sizes hard to fault.

Staff were friendly and accommodating I would defiantly return in the dictionary where it says good pub there should be a picture of the lion

A very remote stunning B&B with very friendly staff and excellent food. The place is excellent overall and all the plus points have been mentioned in other reviews. Only downsides for me were the wines. Expensive and lacking in any quality. The food although great, again a little on the dear side and the fact that the bar closes at midnight, which is perhaps a little early for any parties that are staying the night. Would absolutely recommend.

We have just had two nights which my wife bought for my birthday as we always enjoy the North Yorkshire Moors. This is the first time we have stayed at The Lion and really enjoyed it and would recommend it to anyone who likes to stay at a traditional British pub. In fact we have booked three nights for next year at the end of August we liked it so much. We only had a main meal in the restaurant and the portions were more than sufficient. Reading some of the other reviews it almost seems as if they have visited a different place because we don't recognise those comments. If you want to see a wonderful part of the country then book a couple of nights at The Lion.

Room Tip: We had room 9 which had a four poster bed.

My wife and I stayed here on the C2C hike. The setting is tremendous and the inn is quite spacious. The room was very nice with a good size bathroom. We ate lunch in the pub and dinner in the restaurant. Meals were all good, accompanied by some fine ales. Our room was ready upon an "early arrival" as well. This is a lovely area of England and the Lion Inn is a very nice property. Highly recommended!
