Standing in Osmotherley, the ‘Gateway to the North Yorkshire Moors’, The Golden Lion is a 250-year-old sandstone building. The atmosphere is warm and welcoming with open fires, a wooden bar, bench seating, whitewashed walls, mirrors and fresh flowers. As well as some 45 single malt whiskies, there are always three real ales on offer. The extensive menu ranges through basic pub grub to more refined dishes. Starters might include deep-fried calamari, tartare sauce; or rough pâté with onion and apricot relish. Mains are along the lines of calves’ liver, fried onions, mash potato and red cabbage; and whole roast poussin with rosemary and garlic, green salad and chips. A popular dessert is steamed treacle sponge and vanilla custard.
