From the outside I thought it was an old mans pub as the front is oldy worldy but the back modern. We sat with everyone else in bar. 2 ladies behind bar were very helpful & chatty. We ordered the carnivore sharer this was fab but maybe an extra basket of chips for price but meat and ribs delicious. Very... More

Had a bit of a walk from the car park. Room was ok, I don't mind dated furniture, but it could do with a good dust. There was a handle missing from the chest of drawers with sharp screws jutting out. The rest of the room was clean and tidy. I ate a bar meal downstairs. The menu wasn't extensive... More

We visited the Black Lion on sunday afternoon for the 1st time after a long walk along the coastal path & really loved the feel of the place. It's a beautiful old pub with real charm. We got a friendly welcome from the lads behind the bar who was eager to chat & made us feel at home. The dining... More

A huge improvement to last time! Very welcoming front of house staff. This alone was very different to last time we came! From the comfy lounge area, the bar area and a very well presented restaurant area... We where overwhelmed with the change! The food was another great surprise. Home cooked hearty meals at its best! All most like a... More

We went as a family for Sunday lunch recently and were disappointed. The veg was cool and some of the swede mash had large, 'al dente' lumps. it would have been pointless mentioning it to the staff because they couldn't have done anything about it. The gravy and the cheese sauce were from a packet and the portions of meat... More

I only stayed one night but I felt the Black Lion was a perfectly good 3* hotel. The room was clean, comfortable and reasonably priced, the breakfast was full English (in Wales) and the staff friendly. My only gripe, and it is a fairly big one, is that the board outside said "car park" and I asked to confirm this... More

£65 for a single (actually a double as they had no availability on singles) is steep, but Cardigan is a Travelodge free town. The staff were friendly and the room was very quiet despite it being a Saturday night on the High Street outside. But... no wi-fi in the room only in the bar, room wasn't very clean (two very...
