Had lunch with my family today. How this place is so quiet I do not know!! We had two 3 course meals & a kids meal free all for £30 with soft drinks. Excellent quality cooking and food. Fab service. Perfect for taking little ones. Real old pub atmosphere, with a log burner. My fave place to eat Sunday lunch.... More

We returned here after a gap of just over a year. Having previously had great meals here (hence the return), it was quite disappointing to be presented with a sheet with only 5 choices of meal. All three of us selected a different dish and decided that maybe it was because it was the chef's night off and so they... More

We chose the Black Lion Hotel because of its location. It's situated perfectly for great off-roading, quad biking & cycling. What really made the weekend for us was the hotel. The owners couldn't be more helpful. The rooms are top quality and the food is excellent! We will be back again next year :)

We've stayed at the Black Lion twice already this year, both times while we've been completing hiking projects in the area. What can we say? The welcome is warm, the beer good and the service friendly. The breakfast tomatoes are to die for... I asked for the recipe and have been eating them ever since. The rooms vary in size... More

Stayed here for one night. It's a pub in a small, quiet village with accommodation in converted outbuildings. Our room & bathroom were nice, quite small but clean, cosy & with tea & coffee, enough storage space & Sky TV. We had a great welcome and had dinner in the pub, the food really was good and generous portions. There's... More

I stayed there for 1 night. The staff were all very friendly and welcoming. The food was excellent. The room was the biggest surprise. It was big, nicely furnished and very clean. I would recommend the Black Lion to anybody visiting this area.

Have to agree with previous comments about the exterior wooden steps leading to/from the room, but only insofar as we arrived in the dark, in stormy weather. If in daylight would have been fine, even with very small children. As it was, him indoors turned his ankle (but thankfully not seriously) trying to get back down to the car for... More

Stayed here for one night on route to meet and subsequently adopt a rescue Spaniel. Great pub. Very welcoming and friendly, room was large and nicely done. Fab breakfast to set us up for the day ahead. Recommended.

Arrived lin the evening when work in the area overran unexpectedly. The hosts were extremely accommodating and were able to provide food and rooms even though we hadn't booked. Rooms were excellent, warm and welcoming and the wifi was a real bonus for our work needs. An excellent pub, with good food and great rooms. Would certainly stay again when... More

My partner and I stayed here at the end of November 2013, in room 7. All in all it was a lovely place to stay. Room 7 is a family room, with its own small balcony which is wonderful if you are a smoker and want to 'pop out'. The room was very clean but FREEZING on arrival - as... More
