A very remote stunning B&B with very friendly staff and excellent food. The place is excellent overall and all the plus points have been mentioned in other reviews. Only downsides for me were the wines. Expensive and lacking in any quality. The food although great, again a little on the dear side and the fact that the bar closes at midnight, which is perhaps a little early for any parties that are staying the night. Would absolutely recommend.

We have just had two nights which my wife bought for my birthday as we always enjoy the North Yorkshire Moors. This is the first time we have stayed at The Lion and really enjoyed it and would recommend it to anyone who likes to stay at a traditional British pub. In fact we have booked three nights for next year at the end of August we liked it so much. We only had a main meal in the restaurant and the portions were more than sufficient. Reading some of the other reviews it almost seems as if they have visited a different place because we don't recognise those comments. If you want to see a wonderful part of the country then book a couple of nights at The Lion.

Room Tip: We had room 9 which had a four poster bed.

My wife and I stayed here on the C2C hike. The setting is tremendous and the inn is quite spacious. The room was very nice with a good size bathroom. We ate lunch in the pub and dinner in the restaurant. Meals were all good, accompanied by some fine ales. Our room was ready upon an "early arrival" as well. This is a lovely area of England and the Lion Inn is a very nice property. Highly recommended!

Visited for the first time with friends and family to celebrate a birthday. Its position on the North Yorkshire Moors is stunning, and it is obviously a very popular place. The bedrooms I saw were lovely - maybe new extensions or recently upgraded, and all were en-suite. The beds were comfortable. The food is good standard 'pub grub'. My fish was delicious, but I was told the steak was tough although came as rare as requested. The bar is well stocked with beers, spirits and liqueurs, but I was disappointed with the white wines. The staff were friendly and efficient, especially considering the business of the venue. It is a place I would recommend.

Room Tip: Only one room has a walk-in shower. This is a double shower in the form of a 'wet room'.

We stayed in Gillamoor for 4 days and visited the Lion twice.
Amazed that on a Monday night there were over a hundred diners in there , yet the service was excellent.Returned on the Wednesday when passing and again good value.
