I think the Black Lion might be under new management. We (six of us) called in on a weekday evening after a good soaking on the Wainwright coast to coast path. the basic menu was £7.50 for two courses and for another two quid a greedy person (me) could have a third course. All of us thought food quality and quantity were first class – my lamb liver and bacon might have been just a tad overdone for my taste but three of us had fish and all three reported that it was very good indeed. It wasn't flash – I don't do flash – and the service was prompt and friendly without being sycophantic. I'd be a regular if I lived closer.
