We booked this hotel for a birthday gathering after visiting for lunch several years ago and being impressed with the atmosphere and food. The hotel could not have been better suited for our needs. We booked 6 rooms, all were ample sized, comfortable and slightly quirky. If you want standard characterless modern hotel, look elsewhere! As I had booked the...

We have stayed numerous times in this gorgeous, cosy country hotel. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. The room in the hotel with the wood burning stove is a particular favourite. The food is gorgeous. The restaurant is lovely and we also adore eating in the bar area or snug. Breakfast is superb and the location is idyllic. Love, love,...

This is a bit of a find. They have great ales, great food, the bedrooms are clean and cosy, and the guest lounge is very comfortable after a days travel. It is on the dales way. The surrounding hills and moor are full of circular walks with other cosy tea rooms and pubs never more that a couple of miles...

Just spent the night here and what a lovely place. The setting is really pretty with nice walks from the doorstep. The staff are friendly and very helpful, the rooms comfortable and clean, the real bonus for us here is how great the food is. We had an evening meal and it was delicious, no complaints whatsoever. The wine list...

We had a large group of friends meeting at the Red Lion for a birthday celebration. Everything was very efficiently done. It is deservedly busy with another event going on at the same time - but we did not feel that this impacted on us at all. Food was absolutely first class with excellent wine (South Africa Kloof red) which...

Stopped for a unplanned lunch. 1x Beef and ham salad and 1x fish and chips. Both dishes were perfect. The village is stunning and the Red Lion unspoilt . The staff are helpful and welcoming. We will definitely return..

As a result of the death of the licensee we were dining during the period that the new licence needed to be granted. We were warmly greeted clutching our bottle of red wine which was immediately taken away to be brought to the correct temperature. A very nice gesture given that we had been walking from Ilkley that day and...

First impressions good but room absolutely boiling hot. Had to ask for assistance to get it cooled down. Comfy bed but rest of room very dated. Hot water ran out mid-shower which was very annoying. Service in the (BOILING HOT) restaurant absolutely dreadfully slow. Massiman curry horrible. Rest of food pricey but generally ok. Took hours to eat. Service terribly...

Many thanks for taking the time to give your feedback, sorry to hear you didn't enjoy your stay or food, all rooms have a fully adjustable radiator in them so that guests can have rooms at the temperature they want, maybe an overzealous housekeeper turned that up a little high before your arrival, but you can just adapt this on...
