We dine at the Red Lion 2 or 3 times a year, the food is always good and the service friendly. On this occasion, the bar and restaurant were very quiet. The fish and chips were exceptional, the calves liver excellent and the fish pie very nice. The Sticky Toffee Pudding was OK but not special.

Just stayed overnight at the Red Lion with friends on a walking trip. The Hetton Pale Ale evening meal and full cooked breakfast was terrific and the staff super friendly. We will definitely come back again

My wife and I visited this weekend to celebrate my birthday. We booked a room in the Manor House with breakfast. So on arrival we had a couple drinks and lunch. The portions were excellent and all the food was absolutely fantastic. Reasonably priced and grade A service. We then walked down the river before returning for our evening meal....

I cannot recommend this beautiful hotel enough. Brilliant friendly staff, gorgeous rooms overflowing with Molton Brown products, Princess and the Pea bed, robes and homemade cookies, outstanding huge portions of food and a bloody amazing gin menu. I'm hooked and can't wait to go back.

Originally only planned to have a drink, but ended up having Sunday lunch, and I'm so pleased we did. We both had the roast beef, which was cooked a little rare just how we like it, and very tender, so tasty. Served with a large Yorkshire pudding, roast potatoes and plenty of other vegetables, all of which were delicious, especially...

A lovely setting in the small village of Burnsall which is on the Dalesway. We had lunch and the food was delicious. I had the braised brisket which was a small joint when it came with lovely mashed potatoe. My Husband had Wood Piegeon and he said that was also delicious. The pub part where we had lunch could do...

Something about the 'can do' helpfulness of Yorkshire people, in this case all the staff, lifted our experience from an average 3 star stay to a solid 4. I've seen a remark about the rooms being small - not mine. Very spacious, nicely equipped and with a comfy bed. The bar area was fun and busy with good beers on...
