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

I have been staying at The Black Lion for the past eight years on business but this visit was for a quiet mid-week leisure break with my partner. The hotel is situated only yards from the main square of this quaint, historic market town but is in a quiet street where you will enjoy a great nights undisturbed sleep, especially... More

We had a really lovely stay at the Black Lion. It was friendly with a great atmosphere. The room was clean and had a comfortable bed. We did not eat in the dining room as we were meeting friends for dinner, but we all came back for drinks and had a fun night. Breakfast was also very good. We thoroughly... More

Our room was clean and tidy. The staff very helpful and a adequate breakfast. The hotel is well situated for the town square. The buildings are old and the rooms just need a good update. Certainly ok for the money
