There's been a few landlords here, some weren't interested, some were. The couple there now are fantastic. They're attentive to all customer needs regardless of what it it, their customers always come first. They hold great entertainment in regards to live bands, solo singers and even had a drag queen. It's always busy on weekend nights They hold fun days,... More

We stop here regularly for Sunday lunch. The food and service is amazing, and the portions are huge - make sure your hungry. Free parking makes visiting the Black Lion easy, and the free wifi is also a bonus.

Went here for Sunday Lunch today and the food was fantastic. The Beef was melt in your mouth, perfectly cooked, the roast potatoes and Yorkies were gorgeous, the cauliflower cheese and vegetables cooked to perfection. To say I was surprised was an understatement. Do you taste buds a favor and try the black lion. Service was excellent too.

When Dean Black took on the lease at the Black Lion last year, he inherited a basic pub with basic facilities and basic, tired decor. In just a few months, he and his wife, Sam, have already begun to turn this venue around and it's fast becoming a successful business. We had a meal there, last month, when we went... More
