Embrace the new season with Daniel Thwaites’ charming inn, The Red Lion in Burnsall. Whether it’s a spring-inspired Sunday lunch or a two-night mid-week getaway, now’s the time for longer days and (hopefully) nicer weather.

Sunday night getaways

Beat the Monday blues and escape for a Sunday night break this spring. Check-in, unwind and enjoy a glass of wine – or a pint of Thwaites ale - before heading out to explore the local area.

With views out to the sleepy village of Burnsall and the sound of the River Wharfe trickling by, you won’t want to leave. For the sheer location alone, this traditional inn is a rambler’s or cyclists paradise with Malham, Bolton Abbey and Skipton only a short drive away. Or why not try paddle boarding on the river?

After a busy day sightseeing, nestle down in the inn’s restaurant for a hearty, homecooked meal before slipping off for a cosy night’s sleep. Small details make a big difference, which is why Daniel Thwaites ensures every room comes with a few little extras including deliciously crumbly biscuits and fresh milk for a morning brew.

Based on two people sharing, prices for a one-night Sunday getaway start from £125 per room*

Dog-friendly rooms

As dog lovers, the teams across Daniel Thwaites’ inns take care of canine companions from the moment they check-in to the moment they ‘wag’ their tail goodbye. The inns have a dedicated number of dog-friendly rooms and beloved pets receive their very own comfy bed as well as an exciting ‘Waggy Tails’ welcome pack – complete with food bowl and dog biscuits*. 

All four-legged guests are welcome in the bar areas while also enjoying the outdoor space surrounding the property.

*£20 charge. Subject to availability and welcome packs may vary.

Taste the season

The Red Lion has a range of menus available. Whether you want to sink your teeth into a fisherman’s platter, savour the barbecue brisket chips, or just indulge your sweet tooth with a dessert, you’ll find something that takes your fancy. For hungry little eaters with big appetites, they also have an action-packed children’s menu.

Traditionally, Sunday is a day of rest, so it makes perfect sense to let the inn’s team of chefs do all the hard work. Whether it’s a quick re-fuel or part of a longer staycation, Sunday lunch is always a good idea. Packed full of tempting flavours and locally sourced ingredients, the offering includes a choice of different cuts and of course, they have all the traditional trimmings, from homemade Yorkshire puddings to a medley of seasonal vegetables*.
