The Golden Lion is a well-appointed pub/hotel set in the heart of Wensleydale with a selection of fine real ales and a reasonably priced bar menu. The food is home-made and very tasty. I particularly recommend their chips which are chunky, hot and not in the slightest bit greasy (Americans please note that what you call "chips" are actually "crisps"...

The venue sits at the end of the market place and from the outside it consistently looks busy on the inside. Once inside the place has a buzz with both locals and tourists. Both the landlady and the landlord are friendly and welcoming. The locals likewise are chatty making it easy to strike up a conversation with them. We visited...

Turned up 2hrs late for our 7.30pm booked meal for 15 off roading lads and we were greeted as if we'd turned up at 7pm, we were welcomed and they couldn't do enough to help us get settled / fed and watered. We had better rooms than we booked and a great night sleep in well equipped clean rooms, it's...

We were in Leyburn for just one night, and chose The Golden Lion for our evening meal. It is a warm and friendly pub with a blazing log fire. Bar staff were friendly, and the real ales were in great condition. We had fish and chips with a side salad, other diners chose different things and all seemed to be...

Stopped in for a 'pub lunch' with my parents for a proper meal and really wish we hadn't bothered. The lass on the bar seemed to struggle with the concept of 'stout' and 'Guinness' being the same thing, and it didn't help that the closest thing to either OJ or lemon squash was Robinson's concentrate or oj in small bottles....

Called in for Sunday lunch with hubby. Lovely atmosphere, welcoming and friendly. Food was great. Hubby had the large size and I opted for the medium which was more than enough for me. There was a choice of meats and a good selection of veggies which were cooked to perfection and a very tasty gravy. Landlord, Landlady & all the...

What wonderful people. The staff were amazing. Great food at great prices. We stopped overnight, our room was facing the market place. We never heard them setting up the following morning. Breakfast was served at a time of our liking and it was amazing. Lovely full English with black pudding, fresh fruit and fruit juice. The pub is lovely and...

Firstly if you regard Toby Carvery as a good meal don't bother going or reading any further! This is a Traditional pub on the market square in Leyburn with an open fire and a warm welcome.

Called for an evening meal on a cold November night. Have to say the beef and ale pie and the sea bass were both very good. Staff friendly and helpful - and glad we could take the dog in with us. A little cold at the left side of the bar, so will make sure we go nearer one of...
