Thanks as always for your hospitality , great service and great beer (hoping you have 49er on! but if you don't i'm sure you will have a lovely selection of real ales.

on a snowy cold thursday night. what better is there than a real coal fire and a pint of real ale?. well at the british lion you get both. intresting choice of beer in guiseley i was suprised to see a wharfebank and a saltaire brewerys beer both brewed 3 miles from where i live yet 260 miles from home. any way the abbotts was on top form, i noticed the menu sourced all it food locally,and there was fresh folkestone crab {not frozen}although it would have been that nite oh and thanks to the folk who roasted the chestnuts on the fire, they were superb
