I called in with my dog to find the loveliest of welcomes! Stayed for a drink and a meal which was delicious! A very friendly staff. Open to suggestions for developing their vegetarian options!! Going back with my other half who is vegetarian, so hope to see what they have done about my suggestions.

We called at the black lion hotel on the off chance we could get some lunch and bring our dog. We received a warm welcome and the service in the bar was excellent. The food was lovely and our pooch was looked after with treats and water. Would definitely recommend for an impromptu visit for food after a winters walk.

Stayed one night amazing position, seconds from main square. Warm and welcoming, great breakfast, friendly staff. Rooms were fine, clean and well equipped. Highly recommend this hotel. Parking at the rear of hotel and so central for all shops and pubs.

We visited the pub during a short trip to the area and enjoyed it so much we went for a second visit. We had a dog with us so we had to choose carefully but the staff were fabulous and kept him occupied with a steady stream of visitors and dog treats. The pub was spotlessly clean and the pub...

Having decided to brave the adverse weather with friend and dog needed somewhere warm and welcoming and pleasantly found both by accident. The staff( esp Laura Gilmour) couldn't of been more helpful and after making a fuss of my dog with biscuits and water offered a simple lunch time menu that was more than adequate. I had sandwiches and soup... More

We stayed at the Black Lion for 2 nights on a B&B basis - New Years Eve and New Years Day. The staff were very friendly and attentive. We stayed in room 8 which was quite small but perfectly adequate for 2 nights. The bathroom was very small, hence the shower cubicle wasn't very big (big enough for me but... More

I ate here as a pre wedding dinner in December. I had called the night before specifically to request we were given a square table and that despite an increase in friends attending, we would squash up - I hate long tables as you don't get to talk to everyone. I was disappointed that despite calling the night before, a... More

The largest fish I have ever seen or had when getting fish and chips so large I couldnt eat it which is unheard of. Every one seemed to enjoy all their meals which included curry, chicken roast and... More
