My wife and I got married in Hebden Bridge in March 2013. The wedding was at the registry ofice and we needed a hotel that could accommodate our family and provide a wedding breakfast and accommodation for 3 nights. I used to live near Hebden Bridge but had not been for sometime and stumbled across a review in the Telegraph by Bernard Ingham singing the praises of the White Lion which was under new ownership. We contacted the pub and booked the wedding dates and every room in the hotel. However, a few months prior to the wedding we decided to do a secret reconnaissance visit and organised an overnight stay. Well, we were blown away with what we experienced on that visit. Michael and his fiancee Rebekah were warm and friendly and could not do enough for us and the food was fantastic! The White Lion also serves my all time favourite beer, Timothy Taylors Landlord, an award winning ale from nearby Keighley. Could it get any better? Yes! The rooms are boutique style with roll top free standing baths in some and furnished to the highest order...all this in Hebden Bridge!
When it came to our wedding Michael and his team of staff could not have done more for us. All of our family, ranging from tiny tots to OAPs were catered for. The wedding breakfast was perfect and everything went smoothly and seamlessly. I can highly recommend the White Lion to anyone, whether a rambler after a bit of luxury on the Pennine Way, a couple looking for a cosy weekend away from it all, or a family planning a celebration or a meal.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The White Lion is a traditional coaching inn; with exposed timber and masonry, an abundance of comfortable corners to hide in, and always a warm and friendly atmosphere. Set on a riverside location in central Hebden Bridge, the inn has always been well known for fine country ‘pub’ dining, and its extensive choice of wines and real cask ales. All of which can be enjoyed throughout the year, whether that be in front of a roaring log fire, or in one of our scenic riverside cobbled courtyards. ... more less
