    We had lunch off the set menu. There were few people in for a a Saturday lunch so we weren't expecting to wait as long as we did to get served but we did know the chef was on her own. Fair enough, we weren't in a hurry. The Lion burger was delicious and the fries were excellent though at £14 I think they were a bit expensive. The coffee after was served only after second request and was luke warm. I did like the atmosphere and may go back but would think twice

    Recently moved to the area and have been looking for local pub grub. Visited for lunch today after reading the reviews and Facebook recommendations. Lovely old building and a traditional pub. Good choice of cask ales and other beers. Extremely friendly and helpful staff and the food is excellent and very reasonably priced. Highly recommended and we'll definitely going back to sample more of the menu.

    Lovely pub in Whitworth. Food delicious, good range of beers and a fantastic place to visit after a walk on the hills. Definitely check out the Beefy Chips. Oh and dog friendly too.

    Not stayed here as live locally. They serve real ale and make excellent food. What's not to love.

    Superb little traditional pub. Excellent food although a bit pricey it was extremely delicious. A great pint too. Lovely cosy atmosphere with a nice toasty log burning fire and friendly staff making sure you are attended to with prompt service. Parking can be a bit sketchy as it's on a small square. Can't wait to book my next visit.

    The best pub in Whitworth. Absolutely lovely staff happy helpful and friendly The food is genuinely some of the best food I've had. With a large selection with a verity for people of all dietary requirements The beer and alcohol selection is great too All at a good price Just bare in mind that if you are walking. It is on the top of a hill. But there is also ample parking and easy access for taxi drop off

    Went for a gorgeous meal on Christmas Eve, the pub looked and felt so festive the service was amazing as always and the atmosphere was perfect. We had 4 children with us and every one of us enjoyed our food. Would definitely recommend. Never been disappointed with a meal here and the prices are really reasonable too.

    We have just spent three nights at this delightful old pub. They have a good choice of real ales and delicious food. The room was nicely presented and very comfortable and we were not disturbed by noise from the pub as the people drinking there were very considerate.

    Fantastic local pub, perfect for walkers and dog friendly too. A great selection of ales, lovely atmosphere and in a perfect setting surrounded by the famous Whitworth Doctors homes. Not much parking so ideally visit on foot.

    A few glasses of Madri and a huge Sunday lunch, whilst watching the occasional cow walk past. The beer is good, the food is tasty, the service attentive and the locals friendly. Left here feeling very contented and stuffed. A perfect Sunday afternoon.
