The hotel has been modernised and the Chiraz dining room has been tastefully decorated and is a very pleasant place to eat. breakfast was good and the staff were very helpful and pleasant. Our room was up three very steep flights of stairs and we feel that this should be mentioned with rooms 12 and 13 to be avoided because... More

Not expensive, rooms perfectly acceptable for what you pay. Nice restaurant and good breakfast. Sausages delicious ! I wanted to buy some from the supplier but they are not available to the general public.

Stayed a couple of times in this town centre Inn. Fulfils all needs, staff helpful, food average but plentiful. Excellent freshly cooked breakfast. As a town centre hotel with parking I would recommend the Black Lion.

Lovely old pub, very friendly staff and we had a really fantastic evening meal. The only complaint was that the mattress really needed replacing. It was very uncomfortable. Apart from that it was brilliant and we will definatly go again.

I had an overnight stay in the black lion on the 24th of February with my wife son and daughter inlaw. On entering from the car park at the back we were met by a friendly member of the staff from behind the bar who could not do enough for us making us feel welcome but we found this to... More

Attractive looking and family friendly in a great location. However that is where the compliments stop. Way below average quality and value for money. Salad was gritty, Chicken Kiev overcooked and dried out and the T-bone steak was small, thin and over cooked, served with what looked and tasted like tinned mushrooms! At £30 for 2 small, poorly cooked plates... More

For visiting a hospitalised Mother in the Friary I could not have asked for more. 5 minutes walk from the Hospital, even less from the wonderful square and conveniently placed for some great walks to pass the time between visiting hours.But the biggest plus was the warmth and friendliness of all the staff. The chef was happy to provide a... More
