The Blue Lion named Inn of the Year 2014 by The Good Pub Guide.
Built as a coaching inn towards the end of the eighteenth century, the Blue Lion at East Witton has been welcoming travellers for hundreds of years as they journey through Wensleydale, North Yorkshire. After extensive but sympathetic renovation by owners Paul and Helen Klein, the Blue Lion has become recognised as one of the region's leading country inns.
The cosy, traditional bar, with its welcoming log fire and flag stone floor is a popular meeting place with locals and visitors alike, where an excellent choice of bar meals is complemented by the fine selection of hand-pulled beers. The charming candlelit restaurant is the perfect setting in which to enjoy the highly acclaimed a la carte menu which emphasises local produce and seasonal ingredients.
Deservedly, the Blue Lion boasts a string of culinary awards and achievements for its fine food and wine. During the last decade, it was named the Dining Pub of the Year three times. The twelve en-suite bedrooms are individually designed in keeping with the inn's comfortable, country style, with dark wood furnishings and old prints complemented by the expected modern-day comforts.
