“Christmas Day”
Reviewed January 5, 2014

For the 2nd year running our party booked Christmas day lunch here. The atmosphere was terrific and the food outstanding. Your table is yours for as long as you want it. To make the day extra special Santa arrives with a present for every child and he knows their names and the staff take the age and sex of each child when the table is booked. With 70 diners this year, if you want to be there next year - book early!!

This is the first time we have visited Richmond and I think we will be back again next year. Lovely comfortable bedroom. Breakfast was excellent with various choices. Very good value for money. We had a family room with 1 double and 2 single beds which was situated at the top of the building.

Room Tip: Our family room was at the top of the building so would not be suitable for anyone with walking diff...

We dined here on two evenings during our Coast to Coast trek. The pub has a friendly atmosphere and the staff are very helpful. A good range of beers and a varied menu. Both our meals were excellent on both of our visits. Highly recommended!!

Spent four nights here whilst exploring the delightful town of Richmond.
First time in that part of the world and first time at The Black Lion - and judging by my experiences, definitely not the last!
Staff were friendly and attentive (for example, packed lunches available, just the thing you need for a hiking trip), pleasant atmosphere in the downstairs bar, quiet and clean room and great cusine in the hotel restuarant. The 2 or 3-course Early Bird menu option being great value for money.

Room Tip: Slept like a log in Room 4.

The rooms don't reflect the character of such an old building. I was a little disappointed as I was expecting a much more trad pub/hotel experience, with cheaper, pub grub food. Menu was a little pretentious I felt. However, others may really like that. Staff were friendly, very good breakfast, decent sized room, just a little on the bog standard side rather than beams and olde worlde character. Nothing to complain about really, just nothing to rave about either.

A warm welcome, great location & good old fasion food.
After a long drive was greated by a wamr welcome & given directions to the carpark at the rear of the hotel (Satnav will tale you into the market square).
Room clean, with comfortable bed & everything needed. Dinner two courses for £9 or three courses for £11, if taken betweem 5pm & 7pm was good value & homemade, even down to the chips.
Breakfast great & would highly recomemd to anyone wanting wanting a good old fashion Pub/hotel stay.
