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

We stayed here for a near by wedding. The location was great. Parking is an issue.. We paid for a long stay ticket at the local co-op. Unfortunately.. The bed had a plastic under sheet which was very uncomfortable. The shower blocked and so didn't drain so you end up standing in your room mate's dirty water. The first night... More

Stayed here for a nearby wedding. The pub itself is OK with friendly staff, the rooms are not great but you get what you pay for. Bed wasnt great, window didnt open, smelt slightly of damp, shower was a little cold. Location is in the middle of town and short term parking is a problem as you need to top... More
