The Lion Inn is an absolute must stop for all Coast to Coasters! It is a family run 16th Century free house located on remote Blakey Ridge at the highest point of the North York Moors National Park. If you are lucky enough to make the walk from Clay Bank on a clear day, the moors are gorgeous in their bleakness and you will see some breathtaking views. This walk is part of the c2c, so you will come upon the Lion Inn and if you are not stopping here for the night, you must at least stop for lunch and a brew if you wish. The food is fabulous, offering a huge variety and the bar has won numerous awards for its great selection of drinks and ales. The place is absolutely packed every time we have ever been here, which attests to it's popularity. The Inn oozes with ambience and has a fascinating history. The manager, Paul, and all his staff, could not be nicer or more helpful. This a superbly run business and just a great place to stay and/or eat.
