Review on Golden Lion
Traditional virtues and Yorkshire hospitality are much in evidence at the Golden Lion - a pleasantly welcoming pub/restaurant-with-rooms in a village just inside the North York Moors National Park. The place attracts its share of hikers tackling the Lyke Wake Walk, as well as tourists, families, farmers and out-of-towners.
The interior is essentially one open-plan beamed room with whitewashed walls, a raised open fire, dark wood pews and bare tables. Honest, unflashy cooking is the order of the day and the kitchen makes a special effort for vegetarians and those on gluten-free diets.
Standard dishes are firmly in the traditional mould of prawn cocktail, avocado and crispy bacon salad, chicken Kiev and steak and kidney suet pudding, although the blackboard offers a few extra ideas with a more modern outlook. Finish off with raspberry ripple cheesecake, poached pear with hot chocolate sauce or crème brûlée. To drink, there are well-kept real ales and a clutch of keenly priced international wines.
