Square Meal Review of The Lion Inn ?

Located on the highest point of the North York Moors National Park, this greatly extended 16th-century freehouse is famed for its fabulous views over Rosedale and Farndale. Original beamed ceilings, old prints, high-backed settles and open fires blazing in ancient fireplaces add to the touristy appeal of the place, and the crowd-pleasing all-day menu (served throughout the pub) is tailor-made for holidaymakers, families with kids, sightseers and even coach parties – think giant Yorkshire puddings, pizzas, steaks, fish and chips, burgers, curries and booked-up Sunday lunches. Beers from big-name Yorkshire breweries including Theakston’s, Thwaites and Copper Dragon are supplemented by regularly changing guest ales from further afield. The Lion also has around a dozen assorted bedrooms – a welcome stopover if you’re tromping the nearby Coast to Coast Footpath. Be warned: the pub is regularly cut off in hard winter weather.
