|The Red Lion Hotel is on the High Street. I'd just visited the Bistro des Amis, around the corner and not listed on here. The Red Lion itself is a Greene King establishment that obviously gets fairly busy at times. The number of empty glasses on tables reminded me of a Wetherspoons. Being a Greene King pub, it had Abbot & IPA. But there was also Bank Top Bad To The Bone, Ossett Silver King, Kirkby Lonsdale Monumental & Moorhouses Blond Witch. As luck would have it, the barman let me try a sample of the Bank Top beer. It was in a very poor condition. So I opted for an Old Rosie instead. I'm sure this pub gets very busy on market days. Food is served. But again, that looked a similar quality to 'spoons. One of the better Greene King pubs though.|

|Large Greene King pub on the High Street and only one of three pubs that was showing the Wales vs Portugal Semi Final during the Euros.|
At 7.30pm it was already busy with quite a few pi**ed blokes at the bar, fairly off putting coupled with the empty glasses and plates of food left on the tables, oh and the flies that were circling by the tv!
8 hand pumps with 8 ales on, only a couple of these were from the GK stable.
The several pints of Kelham Islands' Riders on the Storm @ 4.5% were extremely good, I have to say the ale choice was excellent.
Not a pub I would return to when I'm next in Skipton, it served a purpose for the football and the ale was good but that's it for me.

|I was in here about 6 months ago and although all the pumps didn't have beers on them, there was a choice of 4, mainly from the Greene King empire. The food was good too. However, I visited the Good Beer Guide listed pub this Saturday to find lots of incleared tables and apart from the GK IPA modern pump thing, there was only 1 beer on the pumps - at 1.99 which was obviously a clearance thing! Kids crying, the place looked a shambles - we retreated back to the safety of a real pub, that does not try and be all things to all men, women and children! |

|Decent choice and quality of beer but not a place I'd recommend. Service was fine and the pub itself is comfortable if rather sterile. But the only 'atmosphere' in the place came from a very noisy lot watching live football on TV, one or two of whom really seemed to love the sound of their own voice. |
