Stayed here with two mates on Sunday 13th December for one night. The owners couldn't have been more helpful even for my cantankerous old chum who likes things just right, well it must have been because he is talking about doing it again and that is an endorsement!! The food, service and rooms were excellent and really good value and... More

An excellent choice of food on the menu, including vegetarian options. We ordered 4 different meals and each single one was freshly prepared and absolutely delicious. Very friendly service. Lovingly made Halloween decorations. Wish we had discovered the Black Lion earlier, we will go back many many times. I can only recommended it for the best food available in the... More

Nicely done. Good alternative. Preferred by bikers and very friendly. Off the main drag by a block or so. Warm and inviting. Food is comparable to the other Lion and of course I'll have a pint of bitter please! Cheers!

Oh, The Black. It's so good! Came here for dinner last night with my sister and her hubbie. It's very cosy and subtly lit, lovely old pub with a great atmosphere. There were people in a big group, and two tables of one, one chap reading and having dinner. We had two courses each and two drinks each, and it... More

We recently stayed here for two nights whilst attending a family wedding in nearby Tregaron. Lovely hotel - great food, very helpful and welcoming staff and fantastic rooms! We had a family room (room 6), which was large and spacious with enough beds for quite a large family (there was 1 double bed, 3 singles and a sofa bed!). Lovely... More

Excellent. Excellent. Travelling for business I stay in a fair few hotels per month. This is as good as a pub with rooms can possibly get. The Black Lion is perfect. Very friendly, great staff, nice cosy bar, amazing beds and HOT POWERFUL showers. Brilliant stuff!

Our room was very comfortable - though up some steep outside stairs. There are more accessible rooms. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom very modern.- nice tub. Unfortunately the shower leaked flooding the whole room. We did report that. Breakfast was good - served in a lovely old dining room. The location beside the stream is lovely. There were... More
