As part of my husband's 65th birthday celebrations, we spent three nights in the Yorkshire Dales, concluding with a one night stay, with dinner, at the Black Lion Hotel. The atmosphere was very friendly and the staff couldn't do enough for us; the food was good, and we also took advantage of the on-site parking. Thank you to everyone!

Stopped for lunch on journey south we had a super lunch, quality of food was excellent, we had the burger which was well cooked and presented and the chicken tortilla wrap which was delicious. The service was unassuming efficient professional and friendly. Our second visit and we look forward to returning.

Very friendly and attentive staff, especially towards our two dogs! Clean and quite large room with a powerful shower. Only charged £10 for our dogs for a two night stay. Breakfast and dinner of good quality and lots of choices especially for vegetarians. Excellent base to visit the Dales Would recommend and would definitely retun.

Had the afternoon tea for two. Lovely food, great service and nice and cheap, £10.95 per couple. Nice sandwiches. The scone could have done with a bit of butter though! Tip: arrive early or book I'm advance as they sell out.

Visited with a friend & my 11 month old daughter & they couldn't do enough to accommodate us. The waitress was very attentive & friendly. We both had sandwiches from the lunch menu which were freshly made with good quality ingredients & they were huge! Will return next time I visit Richmond.

We stayed one night on New Year's Eve as we were booked into a restaurant just down the road. A bit pricey on NHew Year's Eve (double the normal rate) but hey, that's the way it goes. Friendly staff, food looked interesting, comfy bed and tasty, freshly cooked breakfast. Hopefully we'll be back!

This was our annual pre Christmas get together with two other couples. The hotel is located just off the town square on a quiet street. It was a coaching house and the building retains some of that character. We were greeted with a friendly smile and although we arrived around 11.30am we once checked in were taken to our rooms....
