In the heart of York, just beyond the entrance of Bootham Bar, the Lamb & Lion Inn offers hearty food, real ales and luxurious bedrooms, some with spa baths. The bedrooms are beautifully decorated in earthy colours and all have en suite bathrooms, free WiFi, a TV and tea- and coffee-making facilities. The restaurant serves authentic, rustic dishes, including a cooked Yorkshire breakfast. A wide range of real ales and lagers is available at the bar. York Minster is close by, while the National Railway Museum is a 15-minute walk, and Harrogate, a 40-minute drive.
