“Smashing!”
Reviewed 17 April 2014

Wide menu catering for all, big portions,good food(settle pudding is immense), varied wine choice served in a typical largish English pub. Dogs allowed, is this good or bad?

Thank you very much for taking the time to review your visit to the Lion. We get alot of great feedback from guests about allowing dogs, as there are not very many places that do allow dogs. Hayley Mace and all the team at the Lion.

“Good value, easy to deal with.”
Reviewed 7 April 2014

Had supper here a couple of nights during a recent visit to Settle. It's better than cheap and cheerful but along the same lines; menu is perhaps a little limited but there'll be something for you.

Service was prompt and friendly, food was perfectly reasonable- had a steak pudding on both nights which consisted of good quality meat and the portion wasn't sparse.

Not where I'd go for anything special but for a bite out at a reasonable price it fits the bill well.

“Average pub food with fussy presentation.”
Reviewed 6 April 2014 via mobile

We have eaten here a couple of times and whilst we have not had a bad experience we haven't especially enjoyed it either. The presentation of the food is rather fussy and the taste doesn't quite live up to the presentation. Probably fairly reliable pub food but we won't rush back.

“Upmarket”
Reviewed 1 April 2014

Good food, served by an Italian happy waiter it appeared - he made the place! It was a little 'stiff' sitting there surrounded by locals.. expensive meals but worth the price. It was quiet compared to the Talbot that was too busy to go in.
