Traditional some may say staid hotel bar, comfortable wooden furnished. The main entrance leads straight into a lounge bar area with a sweeping staircase to one side and a massive fireplace that looks like it means business but houses a relatively weedy wood burner. The counter is straight ahead with six pulls for decently kept Thwaites and one of Old Rosie, there are three more in a room to the left which was laid out for dining. There’s another dining type area away to the right. The drinks menu says they stock local and guests in addition to Thwaites. Other than the bar staff I appeared to be the youngest person in the room, I thought I’d wandered into an episode of “Waiting for God”, I suspect they may have the undertaker’s number on speed dial. There’s a more public bar called the "Lion’s Den" at one end, it has a separate entrance and offers the same Thwaites beers and a less refined ambience.

Paid another visit, now operating as the Golden Lion rather than the Lion at Settle, but it is pretty much the same place. There were seven hand pulls with one off, the selection being Wainwright, Sin Bin (Thwaites?), Lancaster Bomber, Thwaites Original, Thwaites Nutty Black and Jericho Blonde by Settle. The Jericho Blonde set me back £1.80 or £1.85 for a half.

The place is dog friendly and I noticed water, towels and cushions all available for those four legged friends.

Service felt a little "corporate" but I think the young chap serving was fairly new so it may just have been nerves. Certainly not unfriendly though.

The layout is pretty much as previously reviewed, still with the separate area laid out for dining.

I have been to Settle a few times but never managed to visit the Lion. Corrected that back in the start of December. It still appears to be a Thwaites house - offering at the time of my visit Thwaites Original, Nutty Black, Lancaster Bomber, Wainwright, Hygge (which I assume was a seasonal one) and a solitary guest which was Devil's Bridge by Kirkby Lonsdale Brewery. I had the Devil's Bridge and the Hygge which were both in good condition and slipped down nicely.

It's a nice pub with a couple of different seating areas plus a further area more set up for formal dining with glasses laid on tables etc. The lady behind the bar was friendly. I would be very happy to go again some time.
