Since the referb the Blacklion has a fresh and clean feel about it without to much change. The food is exciting and full of flavour. The staff are very friendly and accommodating which makes it a warm and inviting place to eat looking forward to going again

First off a big thank you for our wonderful night - 31/1/2014 you guys are the best. Delightful! Impossible to find fault with this first class restaurant. The welcome was warm and friendly and the service was excellent. We were made to feel like old friends and the food was just out of this world. My husband had the baked cod and couldn't believe just how good it was and I had the lamb shank which really melted in the mouth! For a real treat go for the Pantoni pudding. Inspired serving ideas, an excellent menu, fabulous food and all on our doorstep. Somewhere I can be confident to take my guests and know they are going to enjoy. Don't hesitate to use this place,you won't be disappointed.

Been a couple of times in the past 2 weeks for lunch and on both occasions found the service and food to be excellent. The menu is not huge but there is something for every taste. Seems to get busy after 1pm so best to book. The service is brilliant and staff very friendly and accommodating. A lovely setting and comfortable surroundings. Well worth a visit.

A really friendly welcome to an inn that was well presented and contemporary in its look. Had a really good pigeon starter with a tasty pint of Black Sheep bitter.
My friend had a great piece of belly pork for a main meal. I remain unconvinced that the contents of my venison sausage had been anywhere near a deer - a decent sausage except it lacked any game flavour. I hope my comments at the time were noted. Good value for money and worth a visit if you are staying in Thirsk.

What can I say, 14 ladies on their annual shopping trip to York, enjoyed an amazing night at the Black Lion in Thirsk. The food was excellent, the service was exceptional and the staff extremely friendly. We will definitely return to this little gem of a restaurant .
