Stayed for a Saturday night. Quirky uneven floors in the bedrooms are part of the charm and history of the pub. Great food and friendly service. Very atmospheric. A great venue whether you are staying or just having a drink. A great location in the centre of the town and with free parking.

There are many things to commend the White Lion as the place to stay in Hebden Bridge. First is the location, literally 20 paces from the centre of the town. Second is the free parking. Add to these that the staff were welcoming and helpful and our room was perfect, we chose one of the annexe rooms, described as "cosy"...

Went for Sunday lunch here today with friends. Three courses for £18.95 what great value. Seafood starter was amazing. Roast beef cooked to perfection with really good Yorkshire puddings. Desserts really good and all courses had really good portion sizes. All of the party really enjoyed it. Very helpful staff. When next stopping in the area would defiantly stop in...

On our arrival at The White Lion we were informed that the room we had initially booked (Room 1) at a cost of £105.00 was in fact £130.00. We were therefore offered the choice of paying the extra for the room we had initially booked or take a Courtyard room. We decided to check both out. Room 7,although quirky, was...

Great service, very generous portions, in fact perhaps too big for our taste. For nibbles we had mini Cumberland sausages, the melted Camembert cheese and calamari - all very tasty. We were disappointed that the salmon and pork belly 3 ways was sold out by 7.15 on a Saturday evening. So mains were the burger, the pork pie, sea bream...

It was a nice place to eat, food was nice but not worth the high price but nice atmosphere. Staff let it down by being quite formal and cold. Yes they were polite but not really friendly and engaging a smile never goes a miss!

Great place to stay right in the centre, easy access to many local walks and sights. We had a chalet overlooking the weir- very picturesque. Plus free parking is always a bonus! Food is excellent in the main restaurant/bar and it does get busy so book in advance.

We booked all 10 rooms here for our family to stay in while attending our wedding in Hebden Bridge. Everyone wanted access to their rooms prior to the usual 2pm check-in, as the wedding was at 3pm, the staff were extremely helpful and accommodating and everyone got access in time to prepare for the wedding. The pub is charming,warm and...

We came as a group of 8. The management and staff could not have been more accommodating. Nothing was too much trouble. Every request was met with good humour. The rooms are a good size. If I have an observation it is that there are insufficient accessible electricity sockets in the rooms, certainly those in the main part of the...

Loved this pub and to be fair it still has a lot of charm, mainly due to the established staff. However, recent changes have meant a decline. The staff are lovely but when the new management cannot pull a proper pint (and you want a proper pint of cask) and even getting a pint of lager is a stretch you...

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
