Expected a typical inn, a high street pub with OK rooms. However, the Golden Lion is probably the best of its type that I've stayed in. The reception was superb - friendly, efficient and they couldn't do enough for us. The rooms have obviously been upgraded recently with modern, high quality bathrooms and comfortable new beds - the decor is...

Decided to give this place a try for lunch whilst in Northallerton for shopping. Excellent choice for lunch. We settled on the Giant Yorkshire Puddings, mine with pork & leek sausages with onion gravy and the missus with liver, bacon & onions. Both were very good.

We had a wonderful two night stay at the Golden Lion. It was clean and comfortable. Our room had a door that lead out to a small patio. We relaxed there with our tea. It was fun to explore the village during our stay in Osmotherley.

New addition of a modern coffee facility tucked discretely into the traditional lounge. Some things just don't need to change and coupled with great customer service in there, it remains unique, cosy and untouched by The ubiquitous Farrow and Ball paint chart and laminate flooring!
