News, Events and Offers


“Lovely Meal”

Good cooked meals and especially the puddings. Worth a visit and friendly staff. Would visit again, great to take friends and reasonably priced.

“Medieval Night”

Another exceptional night had at the lion on the 22nd April. the food the sevice and the hospitality was fantastic, the night consisted of fancy dress for a medieval banquet . The chef Steve excelled once again with the amount of food provided for all tastes and was enjoyed by all 12 that attended. The landlady vicki supported and joined in the fun showing that this is the best pub to have this kind of venue in.

“Friendly pub with good food”

This is a lovely pub which serves well cooked tasty food at a reasonable price. A great place for friends to get together over lunch in a lovely city.

“Lovely Hospitality”

On our visit to Skipton we found this little Oasis tucked away off the main st, the landlady was very friendly and the food from the excellent varied menu was superb, all locally sourced and cooked to perfection, washed down with some rather fine beers from a well stocked bar. we will be visiting again. At two meals for £12.50 it would be a shame to pass it by.

“Very friendly staff”

We visited for Sunday lunch last week after reading other reviews and were glad we did. Food was good value for money and the birthday boy even got his free of charge which was a nice gesture. All of the staff were welcoming and friendly and although a few things were mixed up (wrong size meal etc) they couldn't have been more lovely. All though it is not the most modern pub it was spotlessly clean. The only negative I could say is that there appeared to only be one vegetarian meal choice available (veggie sausage) with it being a Sunday. Just to add one extra option to your specials would have been great.
