How often do you see new people take a place over and get it totally wrong? Too often! Dennis & Amelia, however, have got it just right. After months renovating, they have created a fantastic atmospheric country pub/restaurant/hotel. I just love the bar top which is a beautiful polished wood. The whole place is rustic yet chic. We decided to...

The bar/restaurant area is old world with slate floors and is very warm and cozy. On an evening it had a great atmosphere, the food was excellent with a good range on the menu, well...

Stopped in here for a beer whilst walking and have to say that it is a beautiful place. A lovely roaring log fire welcomed us in with a couple of good local beers and friendly bar man. Food looked excellent and the setting is very beautiful

We stayed overnight at the White Lion and it was a perfect venue. In wonderful surroundings in Upper Wharfedale, the owners are very friendly and the evening meal was superb as was the breakfast. Our room was so comfortable with everything you needed to hand. There were absolutely no downside to staying at the White Lion

Great service, well kept beer and a great lunch menu .. something for everyone. We had steak sandwich, chicken sandwich and the burgers ... all had high quality homemade ingredients. The Black Sheep beer was excellent.

A decent Yorkshire pub in an isolated position with an incredibly friendly owner. Dinner was good but this would also be a great lunch spot while walking. The roaring fire was very welcoming on a cold evening! Dog friendly as well which is always a bonus.

We stayed here for one night over the bank holiday weekend and wished we had booked to stay here for the whole of our trip! Rustic little pub with a great selection of Gin! Our room was excellent and the underfloor heating in the en-suite was wonderful! The views around the pub are beautiful! We ate dinner and breakfast and...

My husband's birthday fell over the bank holiday weekend this year and we were looking for a treat sans enfants with walking, open fires, good beer, excellent food and comfortable accommodation. The White Lion exceeded our expectations. We last stayed here 20 years ago. The pub has recently changed hands and been renovated and the hosts clearly go to great...
