The White Lion Hotel 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, yet informal and relaxed country ‘pub’ dining, and its extensive choice of wines and cask ales. All of which can be enjoyed throughout the year, whether that be in front of a roaring fire, or in one of our scenic riverside cobbled courtyards.
Surrounded by true Yorkshire history and the stunning countryside of the deep ravined valleys of Calderdale; the area is popular with walkers, cyclist, country lovers, and those just in need of a contrast to a hectic lifestyle. The countryside can be easily accessed by foot straight from the doorstep of the inn, and that same doorstep has frequently provided a place of respite to many attempting the Pennine Way. Also within easy access to the rail and motorway networks, and just far enough away from the vibrant cities of Manchester and Leeds; the inn is centrally based for business and leisure.
And if you were to require an excuse to stay with us for longer, then there are 10 spacious en-suite rooms to choose from. The rooms within the main building boast Victorian roll-top baths and deep luxurious colours, and are complimented by family rooms and courtyard cottages – with the riverside literally at your front door.
Dated 1657, the White Lion Hotel is reputed to be the oldest building in the beautiful town of Hebden Bridge which is renown for its independent lifestyle, creativity, and philosophy – the Yorkshire way!
We look forward to welcoming you soon…
