Stopped off for a bite to eat on the way through to Kendal. Nice friendly service as soon as we hit the bar. The wife ordered the Fishermen's and I went with the Butchers platter. Served on slate with plenty to pick through. One of the best platters I've had for a long time washed down with a good pint...

We planned to stay just one night, but changed our plans so we could stay longer. Very homely, comfortable and friendly place in a great location. Dog friendly too, if that's what you want. We'll be going again. Great location for visiting the beautiful dales. Attractive décor throughout the hotel and great brekkie

Excellent lunch. The beef and onion pie of the day was all gone but we were recommended to try the Wainwright beef pudding Wow that was good. Also we had the sea food linguini at least 8 plump juicy mussels, big prawns, salmon and a lovely flaky white fish, and fish and chips. All excellent value and good sized portions....

Booked a 3 night stay through Booking.com, for a walking trip in the Yorkshire Dales. Hotel is right in the centre of the town, but has no parking. There is a car park about 100 yards down the road by the petrol station, but the secret is to use the rail station car park which charges £2.00 for 24 hours...

Thank you so much for taking the time to review your stay at the Lion and the surrounding area. All your points have been taken on board and are being actioned. The kitchen is now in the middle of an upgrade, we are hopeful that with better equipment service will be quicker. The downstairs works will (fingers crossed) be finished...

We stayed here on a walking break in the Yorkshire Dales. From the first contact with Lousie when we were booking rooms the experience at the Lion was so warm and friendly. This is an old Inn so compromises have been made to create en-suite facilities which are practical and effective. The room and beds were all very comfortable and...

Spent 2 nights here from the 18th May. Warm welcome, comfy room, good food, what's not to like. Parking is in a pay and display but that was close by and didn't cost very much. Would definitely recommend.
