“An unexpected delight”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012

When you arrive at the Black Lion it's a lovely traditional pub with a really nice atmosphere, the food is beyond expectations really well thought out dishes the sharing platter to start is to die for. It's somewhere you can sit and relax. Will be going again!!!

“Excellent Sunday Lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

We enjoyed an excellent Sunday Lunch in very nice surroundings and at a very good price the staff were very helpful and the choice of sweats ticked all the boxes Only downside was no Black Sheep but other real ales were good .

Ally good food and excellent portions and service. Thought it was great value for money! It's so lovely in its idyllic location that it is frustrating its not open all day!! Check out open times (even for weekends!) defo recommend for a nice meal and friendly service. Would love to check out the guest rooms as often have lots of people visiting and thought this place would be perfect!

“Evening Out”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2012

Booked at table for 3 when we arrived it was in the bar area,not a problem really apart from the fact you had to go back to the bar to order your meal.Friendly staff at the bar and drinks reasonably priced.. My partner had mushroom risoto which was delicious,my daughter had pork which came with very generous helping of mashed potatoes and a selection of vegetables. The pork was well cooked with crunchy crackling.I had Lamb Shank which came in a large dish with far too much gravy with little taste and the vegetables were not cooked enough for my liking.The lamb shank was however very tasty and tender.
