Great menu terrific offers. Good fresh wholesome food beautifully cooked and presented. Had the three course offer, brilliant. Would have paid at least double elsewhere for such a lovely meal. Lunch menu was very extensive. Evening menu also very good. Get yourselves there.

When in Northallerton, we usually eat at the Golden Lion. It is a bit like a relic from a bygone age but to be able to sit at a nicely dressed table with good linen and eat cumberland sausage and mash for just over a fiver then what's not to like?

We visit here for a meal every time we pass through Northallerton and have found the place to be consistent, tasty and well staffed at all times. The food is traditional hotel/pub food but lifted a level into quality English cooking. The service is always excellent, the wait time is good between order and service and there is always more than enough to eat, you never leave the table hungry. We have tried both the a la carte menu and the buffet at various times and have had consistently good food. The setting is traditional English, up-market, town centre hotel/restaurant/pub, with low ceilings and a slightly old world atmosphere, great for an evening out with friends or a nice meal with your partner. The only caveat is that it is wise to book at weekends and busy holidays.

A perfect afternoon tea at The Golden Lion in Romanby, overlooking The Green. A warm welcome from the landlord and his wife (the chef), we had a drink in the bar first and then went through to the dining room where the table was laid beautifully with white table cloths and traditional cake stands (one per person), laden with smoked salmon and cucumber, ham, roast beef and egg mayonnaise sandwiches, 4 different cakes and a giant scone with whipped cream, butter and jam. Limitless cups of tea and good company - what a way to spend the afternoon, and all for £7.25 per person. Fantastic.

Nothing better than a good afternoon tea. The Golden Lion in Romanby is your typical traditional, local pub.

They have just introduced to their menu afternoon tea or a cream tea, Tuesdays to Fridays from 3pm to 6pm. My husband took myself and my nine year old as a treat. Landlady came out with a lovely white table cloth which set the mood. Service was very quick, lovely selection of sandwiches, cakes and scone with cream and jam and a good teapot of tea, topped up by the landlord. We thoroughly enjoyed it and at £7.25 for one or £13.50 for two, it was really good value for money. Will definitely be visiting again.
Cream teas also available at £4.75.
