I booked a room for two people on the 9th May and requested an extra bed to be added to the room. I paid an additional fee for the bed to be added in. When we arrived at the hotel, the room was tiny and only had one double bed, despite the requests I had made through booking.com for another... More

Visited as part of a group for one night, the hotel is an old English pub situated near the market place which makes it an ideal location. It has a small car park but difficult to get a park as its busy but fortunatly we were lucky. Rooms not ready on arrival so had a few drinks & lunch in... More

The Black Lion offered Afternoon Tea for 2 @ £9.95. We had (choice) a round of marie rose prawn and a round of hand cut ham & tomato sandwiches; 2 scones with jam & cream and 2 delicious strawberry tarts with plenty of excellent tea. The whole thing was delicious and we actually had to take the scones away with... More

I was in Richmond on a day trip with friends. We were looking for somewhere to have lunch and happened upon this place. We waited some time before anyone came to our table. She said she would be back in a minute, but we waited some time. Eventually, when the waitress came back to take the order, we asked for... More

I came here recently on a family visit to experience the local area and decided to stay in The Black Lion Hotel. I have to admit I read some of the reviews before staying and wasn't expecting much but I must admit I was pleasantly surprised! The rooms are nice and spacious, although slightly dated with lots of storage space... More

Firstly this place has two entries in trip advisor. One as The black lion Hotel for accommodation and as black lion hotel as a restaurant. I will review the hotel here and food on the other entry. This was our first time visit, purely based on previous reviews. We arrived late on Saturday and the car park was full. No... More

Very modest B&B pub house but I loved it. The room was nice. Great shower. Right near the center of town. Pub was active and good. Food was good and beer selection was great. Gemma was such a friendly worker make sure to say hi.

On a visit to Richmond today, my Partner and our Daughter decided to stop here for a Sunday lunch. After sitting down at 12.50pm, we were still waiting for three roast beef dinners at 1.30 pm. Our waitress did not communicate once with us about any delay. I approached the staff at 1.30 pm when another couple who had come... More

As soon as we walked in they made us feel welcome, telling us where we could sit with our dog; there were even free treats for our dog. We ordered toastie and chiabatta with a portion of chips. It was all good but the coleslaw was amazing. Also the service was excellent and the staff were very friendly.

Carpet dirty , stair case very unsafe , uneven steps ! No banister rail on some stair cases , mentioned this to staff , as no management available, she told me hotel WAS 400 years and they did have a lot of customers, that must account for the dirt and wonky steps , !!! Not nice
