From the moment we walked in to the Lion & were greeted with a warm welcome, we were impressed. Our room (14) was spacious & very well presented with a great bathroom. There was some traffic noise from the trucks passing by but it didn't keep us awake at night.
The bar offered a range of real ales & the fireplace was lovely. The bar staff were helpful & friendly.
The evening meal was served in the very pleasant dining area by a lovely waiter. The service was prompt & the food was very enjoyable- generous portions at reasonable prices.
Breakfast was great- a cold buffet of cereals, yoghurt, fruit salad & croissants and a self-serve toast station. The Full Yorkshire cooked breakfast was a showcase of good produce, well cooked & well presented, promptly served again by friendly staff.
When we checked out & staff enquired what we had planned for the day, a second staff member was called over to advise us on a sort local walk, and she happily provided us with a couple of alternatives.
We had our 8 month son with us & a room with a bath & travel cot were provided as we had requested. We were offered a high chair at breakfast before we had the chance to ask for one & it was spotless & well maintained. the walk we did was very pushchair- friendly. These little things really do make a difference when travelling with children & made us feel welcome.
We really couldn't have asked for more from our stay at the Lion. Nothing was too much trouble for the lovely staff & we hope to return before too long.
