Very spacious room with great en-suite.The night we were staying the flood siren went off so not many people around but meals were good quality with open fire in main bar and comfortable seating around it. Not cheap but would thoroughly recommend it and no complaints whatsoever.

This is a pleasant and lively pub just away from the main square in Hebden Bridge. The atmosphere is jolly, the beer well kept, the staff attentive and the food looks very good, we didn't eat. However all of this good was undone when a large white dog arrived. This dog must be familiar to the staff and was much... More

Visited many times over last 4 years. Have spent a lot of money here. Initially first class (if a little pricey) but over last 18 months has consistently failed to impress. We have given it the benefit of doubt in hope that it will improve but it shows no sign of doing so...food poor, portions smaller each time, staff vacant... More

The White Lion was perfect. My room was #7 - beautiful, spacious, comfortable, clean room right next to their private parking. Nice selection of teas, coffee, and biscuits. Location couldn't be more perfect either, right in town centre for an easy stroll to everything including station and local walk routes. The pub area is gorgeous, nice wood burning fire on... More

We arrived late and reception was very helpful. The room (number 3) was a lovely en suite. Very warm turn down the radiator as not too cook. Breakfast was lovey and portions were enormous.

My partner and I stumbled across this place after a day out to Hardcastle Crags. The food was absolutely spot on, we both opted for pies. He had the steak and ale and I had the 3 cheese and onion and we are still dreaming about them now! The only thing which really lets the place down is the poor... More

We regularly eat at the White Lion every couple of weeks and have never been disappointed. The pub was refurbished a few years ago, but has managed to retain its old-world charm. There is a big open fireplace with a hearty fire in the winter, and a small but attractive garden at the back to enjoy in warmer weather. For... More

Lovely hotel/pub. We were made very welcome and a staff member helped us with our bags upstairs to our room (#4) above the bar. It was clean spacious with a large en-suite bathroom.

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
