Surrounded by the splendor of the Yorkshire Dales National Park and nestled in the heart of iconic Wensleydale the historic 18th century Blue Lion Inn encapsulates the finest elements of traditional rural England.


At the Blue Lion they take dining seriously and enjoying food is certainly their main aim…

Bottom line – The food is fantastic and the service excellent – not cheap – but you get what you pay for – (visited by some well known people) and dog friendly in the bar areas…

You’ll be spoil for choice by the Blue Lion’s freshly prepared seasonal menu that sources the best Yorkshire produce to be found – it’s no wonder we’ve won the Dining Pub of the Year Award three times.

The real ale bar with its log fire fueled cosy atmosphere, large sweeping settles and sturdy oak tables provides an English pub setting for you to sit back, relax and take in our famous cuisine which is laid bare on our chalked up menu boards ready for your taste buds to be tantalised.

The Blue Lion is renowned for a fantastic range of hand-pulled unique guest ales to the more recognisable names from the Black Sheep Brewery from nearby Masham.

With its mix of traditional wooden furniture, classically decorated picture clad walls and splendid wine list the restaurant is the perfect place to indulge in a gourmet meal.
