An Inn in a perfect Yorkshire Dales setting on the river. The staff cannot do enough for you, they are young and polite. It is family run and they seem to go the extra mile which makes the difference. I have stayed in a cottage across the courtyard which was lovely with views across to the bridge and down the river, and also in a hotel room which was spacious, clean and very comfortable. Our friends stayed also and their room was smaller but still as good. Each room seems to have its own style so no corporate theme here:) our last visit was 2 day New Years Eve gala weekend which was wonderful. four course meals , breakfast, fireworks at midnight and a disco until the early hours . Very good value.
There is a large bar area, function room , gorgeous dining room and bar meal seating,and also there is a residents lounge which has lots of sofas and two stove fires, with wifi. Lots of walkers use The Red Lion as it's in a perfect spot for a hike.
Loads of places to visit nearby.
Back for another visit in May, love it.

Like many other people booked one night and stayed in the Manor house and dined in the restaurant at the Red Lion. We were made to feel welcome and the staff were very helpful.The room was very comfortable and clean, and the setting is very quaint and peaceful but not much in walking distance on a dark evening. The food (while a bit pricey) was lovely and the breakfast was also very good. Hope to return in summer to enjoy the river and the scenery. Would recommend.

So pleased you enjoyed your stay with us, we do try to give value for money with regards to food and accommodation, all produce is sourced locally and ironically this can sometimes make it a little more expensive!! however we believe the quality is worth it.

We have dined here many times and we were not disappointed with anything on Boxing Day. Atmosphere was lively and the staff were attentive charming as always. We were stumped with what to order, as there were so many fantastic choices on the daily special's board, but I settled with the pheasant and celeriac mash while my husband enjoyed breast of mallard duck. This is one of my top dining experiences since my first time here in the summer of 2007. If you plan a visit in warmer weather, the beer garden and the river view seating are lovely, food is extensive and there is something to suit everyone's pallet with seasonal and local produce (game, meats). Hats off to you for wonderful service and outstanding beer.....try the Timothy Taylor Boltmaker (IF you are lucky to be there on that magical day it's on) or Hetton Pale Ale).
We have stayed here twice, and I do suggest a room not overlooking the street or main door (on the restaurant side) as voices and traffic did carry up to the rooms, but that was in the summer months when we had the window open in the evening. The rooms were comfortable and the Molton Brown amenities were grand. We chose that room because it was one of the larger rooms, but we have stayed in a room that overlooked the back of the property that we found to be just right.
If you are an avid walker or just fancy a gentle stroll, Burnsall is the essential place to be with a splendid river walk, and if you don't eat too much, you can make that walk to Grassington! The walks are well marked and there is a lot of choice even without a map.

Booking in for a night to get to a friend's wedding, the communication was excellent. On arrival - ample parking - the welcome was friendly, and booking in was smooth.

The room was lovely - in The Manor House, and only a couple of minutes from the main building.

After a lovely meal and a pint of local ale, with great service, we headed off to the reception.

Breakfast in the morning was hearty, very quickly served and blinking tasty!!

Highly recommended all round!

My wife and I had one nights stay at the Red Lion. We stayed in the Manor House , and the only down side , although it did state on the booking , was that the ensuite was "compact".

However , this did not detract from our overnight stay. There was an excellent range of beers , and the food, both choice and quality , were superb. Put this with the idyllic location and friendly staff and the picture is complete.

We have booked to go again in the New Year, and this time will take the dogs , as selected rooms accommodate these.

Room Tip: As mentioned above , if you were staying more than one night , the ensuite may be a little small in...

Stayed for two nights. Wonderful place. Lovely, friendly staff and amazing food. Cosy bar an good beer too. Only very small niggle, we were surprised at how small our room was, we had room 9. Fortunately we didn't pay the full price advertised on the web site. Home made biscuits were an nice added touch and lashings of hot water for a deep bath after a long walk! Location is wonderful, right on the river. We walked up to Simons Seat, stunning walk and lovely views
