Room was on the high street with windows that seemed from 1920, the noise from passers by was bad but not compared to when the binmen came at 530am! Dinner was ok apart from the floor in the restaurant vibrating??? Breakfast was awful, had a bacon sandwich with ridiculous amount of butter on, managed to scrape some off but most... More

First impressions didn't do justice to the service & food available here. It was late & near the end of serving time when we arrived, the back room was very clean & tidy. We were made to feel welcome & the food was really good, hoy & tasty.

I have visited the Black Lion a few times and had always had an enjoyable time there, but a visit to the inn last night was not a very pleasant one at all. The bar staff had faces like thunder, they were slow to serve despite the bar being quiet, rolled their eyes at our choice of music and swore... More

What a lovely welcome at this hotel. Dead centre of the town. We had a lovely room, staff were extremely accommodating. Breakfast was excellent. We did not have an evening meal but other patrons seemed to be very happy with their neals.

The Black Lion is an ok place to stay, but dont expect 5 Star, it is basic and the place is in need of some updating. All that said its good value - and the bar and food are very good and reasonably priced, for a quick stopover its fine.

We had spent the day exploring the town as d were looking for somewhere to have a meal. We stumbled across this pub and gave it a try. We were shown to the pleasant restaurant and quickly picked our choices and the service was already great. The food arrived quickly in good portions and with a smile. It was felt... More
