The White Lion Hotel

Traveller (101)
Room & Suite (32)
Dining (28)


The White Lion is a traditional coaching inn; with exposed timber and masonry, an abundance of comfortable corners to hide in, and always a warm and friendly atmosphere. Set on a riverside location in central Hebden Bridge, the inn has always been well known for fine country ‘pub’ dining, and its extensive choice of wines and real cask ales. All of which can be enjoyed throughout the year, whether that be in front of a roaring log fire, or in one of our scenic riverside cobbled courtyards.

Had a fantastic night away on the 9th. All members of staff were extremely helpful and polite. There was a welcoming and relaxing atmosphere and the huge open fire was an absolute delight on a February afternoon. We dined in the pub in the evening and the food was exceptional.

Thank you for your review. The White Lion was built in 1657 so it has a few little quirks in a couple of the rooms, it’s part of its charm. Your recommendation is much appreciated.
