Four of us called in here for lunch and were pleasantly surprised by the elegance of the large dining area, the extensive variety of the menu and the good quality of the food. Whilst not the cheapest of eating places for lunch the menu offered good value for money and there was an excellent choice of Specials of the Day.... More

Had the intention of having a couple of beers and some lunch, but was put off by the dismal atmosphere & decor in the bar, poor range of ciders, and the hugely inflated drinks prices. The tables were worn & chipped, seldom... More

We are local to Northallerton and often drop in to the Golden Lion for lunch. The menu is very simple with daily 'specials'. All the food is freshly cooked so although you may wait a while it is always piping hot. The staff are excellent. They are smart, friendly and attentive and well trained. My mum often has the small... More

I ordered a la carte, but others had a group menu. Both were excellent quality and value. The menu has a wide variety to choose from and everything I tried over two days surpassed expectations. The waiting staff were very friendly and efficient. Highly recommended.

We hadnt been to the Lion before for sunday lunch but our expectations were exceeded. Excellant choice of hot carvey meats and vegetables. Staff very pleasant and even though it was a busy day very calm. Never felt rushed at any point and we spent a nice afternoon.

We called in for lunch recently, my wife had previously been for evening meals but it was my first visit. The Dining Room is large and pleasant and on our visit it was not busy, there was no sign of anyone to meet and greet so we found our own table and picked up the menu. We both decided on... More
