Head to the legendary Lion Inn for a warm welcome

Blakey Ridge, North Yorkshire

It’s the simple things that matter when you’re out winter walking – like a pint, a traditional Sunday roast, a roaring fire and stunning views.

The iconic Lion Inn on Blakey Ridge does these things to perfection, much to the relief of Coast-to-Coast hikers, touring cyclists and other hardy types who pass by in all seasons.

It’s one of the oldest inns in the North York Moors, sited high above Rosedale and Farndale, with spectacular views in every direction. Ancient stone crosses and boundary markers pepper the surrounding moors, but otherwise this seems a long way from anywhere.

If you’ve tramped across hill and dale to get here, the tempting menu soon revives flagging spirits – a place that offers twelve puds, from roly-poly to chocolate fudge cake, can really be said to know its market.
