Blue Lion  

The Blue Lion was originally built towards the end of the eighteenth Century as a coaching inn, attracting trade from travellers and drovers, on their journeys through Wensleydale. Recently the Blue Lion has undergone an extensive, yet sympathetic renovation programme and is now widely recognized as one of North Yorkshire's leading Country Inns. It boasts a string of culinary awards and achievements. This in turn, has made it a popular venue and resting place for both locals and visitors alike. Prince Charles even dined here two nights running. Though mainly a food pub, they do serve real ale - Black Sheep beers plus a few fizzy brands. The big square-ish bar has high backed settles and old Windsor chairs and round tables on the turkey rugs and flagstones. Ham hooks feature in the high ceiling decorated with dried wheat, etc plus log fire in the same room. Of course there is the obligatory bric-a-brac, sporting prints, etc. Bar food is not as expensive as you might think, but the restaurant (closed Sunday evening) is. Outside there are picnic tables and a big garden. There is accommodation here, 12 individually furnished en-suite rooms, double/twin ?89-?79-?69.00, single ?53.50, weekend ?70 per room, per night including full English breakfast (mid-week breaks available).
