First time to Leyburn and called in at The Golden Lion. Landlady was extremely friendly. Decided to have a Sunday lunch and was fantastic value for money. £7.50 for large and £6.00 for medium. Beautiful home made Yorkshire puddings. Will definitley try again.

We had a lovely dinner in the bar on one evening and there was an excellent selection. There is a lift for the use of the more elderly guests and plenty of free parking outside the door, provided...

We confirmed the booking nearer the date and were told that one of our two single rooms had been upgraded at no extra cost to a double room,... More

I was grateful for a place to stay whilst cycling the Tour de France cycle route in heavy rain. The owners found me a room and hospitality was great. The full English breakfast was a delight with as much coffee or tea that you wanted. Local produce was used and the overall value excellent. Great location in front of the... More
