Nestled beneath Buckden Pike,  The White Lion Inn is a traditional Yorkshire Inn that's recently been renovated giving it a fresh lease of life but still retaining all its original charm. For those planning to walk to the Buckden Pike memorial on Day 7 of the Ales and Dales Trail, the White Lion Inn (in its former glory) was actually where the surviving Polish airman was taken to for rescue.


Expect hand-pulled ales and some of the best food in Yorkshire - all their menus are fresh and regularly change depending on what's in season in the area. They work closely with local farmers have a dedicated team that tailors every aspect of their menu from breakfast to dinner that includes as much produce that the Upper Wharfedale has to offer.
