Spoilt by having the Golden Lion as our "local" . Is simply the best place to eat in the area. Sirloin Steaks are always excellent and the service and atmosphere exceptional.
i havent stayed but colleagues who have rate it highly
I use the restaurant for both family meals and business meals and cannot fault it
Keep up the good work Christie and Team

We had a fantastic weekend stay at the Golden Lion. Our room was superb, beautifully decorated and a lovely en-suite bathroom. The staff are extremely friendly and very helpful and made us feel very welcome.
We ate in the restaurant both nights, and both nights the food really was five star.

We will definately be returning very soon.

Stayed with a group of girlfriends for one night, we all loved it! Bedrooms were decorated to high standard, delicious food, decent wine list and lovely full english breakfast with fresh coffee and hot milk. nothing too much trouble here, can highly recommend. Bring walking boots, some lovely walks and views around the village - not to be missed!

We have been to Osmotherley for many years but had never stayed at the Golden Lion before. We had wonderful meals at the hotel but had never managed to get a room. This year we were finally successful - we had a wonderful 2 night stay. The room was wonderful - the shower in room 2 was fantastic as were the breakfasts. Our hosts could not have been more welcoming. When we couldn;t get a taxi for the christening that we were attending they took us to our venue -what more could we have asked for - if visiting Osmotherley you must stay here - an amazing hotel in a wonderful location - we will definitely stay here again and would recommend any other visitor to stay here. Thank you!!

Room Tip: As far as we could tell - all rooms looked fantastic

What a little gem of a place - stayed for one night with wife and friends and ate in the atmospheric bar. Food and service great with good menu choice.Our bedroom was very clean and so very comfortable. We will without a doubt be making a return visit to the Golden Lion sometime in the future and possibly for longer than just an overnighter. This is just the type of place that so typifies a truly English village pub and one which is much appreciated.

Just returned from The Golden Lion after a week-end with 7 good friends ; we took up all 5 rooms which were most comfortable and perfectly suited our needs. A great host in Christie , and friendly and quietly capable staff ,helped to make our stay very relaxing . Good food [ one of our friends said the sirloin steak was one of the best he had ever had ] , regular change-over of real ale barrels , and a fine selection of malt whiskies , log fires , candles , locals and visitors chatting , a great location in a pretty village , a variety of interesting walks from the pub , and good communication links , all added up to a really enjoyable get-together . To anyone thinking of going - go ! you will not be disappointed .

Room Tip: All are smartly furnished , comfortable , clean and with good facilities , especially the shower !

This was a special family occasion and we were confident that the Golden Lion wouldn't let us down, and guess what...it didn't! The rooms as ever were very clean, comfortable and comfortably stylish. There was plenty of choice for our evening meal, we had delicious food and we were looked after very well by Christy and his staff. We will return very soon.
