We were recommended this pub by a friend who lives in York and we were not disappointed- the food was brilliant and reasonably priced. Service from staff was excellent. Would definitely visit again the next time we are in York.

We stopped off here for lunch and everything was good. We ordered a ham sandwich which was huge but the ham was of very high quality. We were well looked after and we received a proper Yorkshire welcome. We will definitely return.

Description
For many hundreds of years, the Lamb & Lion Inn has fed and watered weary travellers visiting the ancient city of York. To pay tribute to the Inn's long history we have created a menu that focuses on providing our guests with authentic, deeply satisfying meals and simple but hearty soups and sandwiches that go perfectly with a pint of real ale (or two!).
