Address: Duke Street, Settle, North Yorkshire BD24 9DU

Behind the unassuming façade of this 17th-century coaching inn awaits a rustic interior that celebrates The Golden Lion’s Yorkshire heritage. Still retaining much of its original charm, you’ll find beautiful oak flooring, inglenook fireplace and tweed fabrics. The traditional bar is one of those places where you could enjoy lazy afternoons by the fire with a pint of local ale, hearty food and good company – everything a good Yorkshire pub should be. And don’t worry if the drinking goes on into the evening, you can always slope upstairs to one of the bedrooms for the night.

Food and Drink

Taking great pride in its Yorkshire heritage and location, food and drink at The Golden Lion draws discerning foodies from across the country. Tuck into a comforting homemade pie or try the traditional Settle pudding which has proven to be a big hit with the locals. Made with locally sourced produce and a large helping of culinary flair, the food here hits all the right spots.


Bedrooms at The Golden Lion blend bold wallpaper, tactile fabrics and artwork inspired by the Yorkshire countryside and local wildlife. The finishing touches have been carefully considered to inject a boutique vibe with an extra element of luxury, and you’ll find a good night’s sleep is simply unavoidable.

Out and About

Most famously known for its railway line which runs from Settle to Carlisle, the traditional market town of Settle is a popular stomping ground for walkers returning from a day in the hills. With fabulous walks such as the Yorkshire Three Peaks, Ingleton Waterfalls and the iconic Ribblehead Viaduct all close by, The Golden Lion is the perfect place to wet your whistle
