I stayed for one night in August as a solo traveller in a double room. I didn't have time to read any reviews and am so glad I didn't as I am dumbfounded by some of the adverse comments. To begin with, I arrived at 10am, fully realising check in wasn't until 3pm. I had already asked if I could... More

On a wet and windy day, we popped into this pub for a bite to eat, Pint of Guinness was as expected very good, Pint of Theakstons Black Sheep, tasted nice but was a little cloudy (possibly near the end of the barrel). We had a Club Sandwich and a Brie, Bacon and Cranberry Panini, both were excellent with fast... More

The room we stayed in was adequate but the carpet... More

We had a good stay at the Black Lion. The room was spacious and clean and the bed comfortable. We ate in the restaurant and the 'monster' fish and chips was fresh, tasty, with light batter and, monstrous! The staff were friendly and efficient - particularly Aysha(?), who seemed to be everywhere - evening waitress, check-in, barmaid, breakfast server. An... More

Spent quite a few lunches here during our year in Catterick. Lovely service, traditional pub setting and standard pub grub. The sunday lunch is great value. We've brought a lot of our family members here for occasions.

Stayed here as The Castle Tavern was full. The room was very comfortable if not a little on the small side, but it served the purpose. The only thing I didn't like was that the bathroom was not ensuite but across the corridor. So not so great for in the middle if the night but for a short stay I... More

A large group of ex-service men and women stayed at and ate at this venue. We were all made very welcome. The food was very good, Some of the food orders were not as requested, special diet requirements, however this was very quickly rectified. The room I stayed in was very clean and tidy, even though I was right at... More

Really comfortable stay. Restaurant was just perfect and accommodating 11 of us was no problem. Food was very good with wide ranging menu, so much so that we ate there both nights. The staff were always courteous and very helpful.

Rooms were clean and tidy, bathroom was also clean and the showers was easy to use. The Wifi should be available in the rooms, they seemed short staffed so little mistakes were made. Dinner times should be explained to customers on arrival.
