Considered going into the Black Lion Hotel for lunch on Thursday as we had been told by a friend that it had improved greatly during the last couple of weeks. Previous experiences of mine here had placed this hotel as one of the worst places I have ever visited. However on approaching the entrance the general 'run down' look of...

Stayed on the Bank holiday Sunday. Parking at the back was good for 5 motorbikes and we were allowed to put them under cover. Rooms were a good size and shower worked well. TV did not work. Generally the service was poor. Only 2 people working. Took ages to get served and food took even longer. Only 11 people eating...

£30 for B&B is excellent value. The breakfast was splendid. The room basic but clean and fine. Bar food a good standard and real ale - Brain's bitter very tasty. Secure lock up for my cycle. Arrived without a booking and was easily accommodated.

Room was nice and spacious but needs modernizing, little things which cost barely anything to fix and create a big improvement are really not excusable for example the bath panel was hanging off at the bottom and was broken all the way across the cost of a new panel is nothing for the lasting impression it gives, the wardrobe which...

Very reasonably priced and food was delicious. The staff were friendly and efficient. Would certainly go there again . The chicken korma was very tasty and the scampi was plentiful. Couldn't fault it food wise.

Under new management! Although the Black Lion wasn't bad under the last management team, the new staff at the hotel have brought a new feeling of refinement to the place. I think it's true to say that small changes have had a big effect. Definitely will be a regular customer.

I ordered the monteray jack ,black eyed bean burger, but got the worst excuse for a frozen veggie burger I have ever seen, nothing on the plate resembled anything described by the menu. it took 20minutes for it to be served, I asked for my money back and left.

We just wanted something cheap and cheerful for 1 night. The place was easy to find, parking very easy. The bar was a bit tired, and the room a little old fashioned, but perfectly clean and comfortable. Comfy bed, fluffy towels, and loads of hot water. The menu for evening meal was extensive, and the food was inexpensive and not...
