The hotel itself from out side looks interesting and from in side is just like other B&B places in the area. The furniture is very old and rooms are very noisy, but you will get what you paid for. We stayed for one night as we joined the wedding party, so for that purpose was really good enough. Thank you.

First impressions didn't do justice to the service & food available here. It was late & near the end of serving time when we arrived, the back room was very clean & tidy. We were made to feel welcome & the food was really good, hoy & tasty.

I have visited the Black Lion a few times and had always had an enjoyable time there, but a visit to the inn last night was not a very pleasant one at all. The bar staff had faces like thunder, they were slow to serve despite the bar being quiet, rolled their eyes at our choice of music and swore... More

What a lovely welcome at this hotel. Dead centre of the town. We had a lovely room, staff were extremely accommodating. Breakfast was excellent. We did not have an evening meal but other patrons seemed to be very happy with their neals.
