The White Lion is a traditional coaching inn; with exposed timber and masonry, an abundance of comfortable corners to hide in, and always a warm and friendly atmosphere. Set on a riverside location in central Hebden Bridge, the inn has always been well known for fine country ‘pub’ dining, and its extensive choice of wines and real cask ales. All of which can be enjoyed throughout the year, whether that be in front of a roaring log fire, or in one of our scenic riverside cobbled courtyards.

Visited for a late lunch on a very busy weekend. Staff were friendly and the food was superb. The lamb kofta received rave reviews from my partner and my chicken and bacon sandwich was delicious, the chips were also gorgeous.

Good morning. Yes, we have a small car park located behind the hotel. It can get quite full at times, but we can usually arrange the cars to maintain you a space. Many thanks.
