The conviviality, cuisine and chilling ambiance went a long way to alleviate our throbbing feet after achieving the half way - 20 mile mark - of our 40 mile historic and extremely challenging Lyke Wake Walk. The potent combination of friendly staff and regulars, roaring fire, eclectic mix of pooches and fantastic food made our overnight beak memorable and relaxing,...

Stopped in at the Lion Inn during our Coast 2 Coast walk for an overnight stay. Busy place but we were shown to our room with little delay. We had a room right over the pub. The place seems to have been built in stages and has a lot of corridors and extensions. It was loud until 10pm, but then...

This was an evening meal after previously stopping for an afternoon drink. Friday evening the place was busy but the service and food was very good. Considering the location the choice of menu and beverages were ample, as for the portions very ample. As a suggestion a smaller portion at a reduced price could be considered for ladies.

Stopped off here with friends after we'd spent a day out on the moors. Our friends had been here many times, our first time and wasn't sure what to expect. We each had quite a different meal but the meal I had (Lasagne) was excellent and very obviously home made. Was too stuffed to sample a pudding but the ladies...

Excellent food all round orders got a little muddled but otherwise very satisfied customers from Wakefield West Yorkshire. Shame we weren't there longer as it would've been lovely to sit and chill afterwards

Walkers, cyclists, bikers, motorists this is the place to stop and refresh yourself if your around the area. I regularly stop here and the fare is usually reasonable in quality and price. It's the type of place you want to linger at. If the weather is good, and it was stunning when I called today, there is a large beer...
