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

We stayed for two nights and the room was very small but warm, clean and well decorated. The breakfast was good too, it made us think that the cook might have had higher ideas at some stage in his career. It is right in the centre of town with it's own parkling although this can be tricky as the car... More

We stayed here over Christmas and the twin room was very clean and had everything we needed for our short stay. The staff were very welcoming and the breakfast room was by far my favourite part of the hotel. The food is amazing and even the breakfast was presented in a way that would be welcome on masterchef. If I... More

The Black Lion is ideally located in a small street around the corner from the Market Place where you can enjoy a quiet night then easily catch the bus the next morning. The building is an ancient inn with a function room on the first floor where breakfast is served and smaller rooms on the ground floor for evening meals.... More

My wife used Trip Advisor to pick this hotel in Richmond to meet a friend she hadn't seen in over 30 years. In total there was 8 people and after drinks we decided to have lunch at the hotel. The staff were very accommodating, putting together a table big enough for us all. We stayed in the hotel until the... More

The Black Lion is a lovely hotel in the centre of Richmond. The room we had was warm and clean. It had a separate sitting room and it's own entrance. Dogs are welcome and allowed in the bar. Everyone was very welcoming and the service good. The food was very good and the cooked breakfast excellent. There is a car... More

I ate here twice during my recent stay in Richmond; as a lone diner I was made to feel welcome by the reception/waitressing staff and was very well looked after. I enjoyed the early bird menu which is great value (available Monday-Friday 5.30pm- 7.30pm) at only £9.50 for 2 courses. The food was beautifully presented and very tasty! I would... More

First time in Richmond (a lovely town to wander around). The black lion is nice and quaint. Staff friendly and attentive. And Sunday lunch was lovely - just what was needed on a cold day! The beer was very nice as well.

Went to Black Lion today, small but cosy. We found seats ourselves and when greeted by staff reception was less than welcoming...you will need to wait as a party of 8 just arrived! It was only 3 hungry children that made us stay, not exactly a WARM YORKSHIRE WELCOME! Food was ordered and arrived in a reasonable time, after the... More
