Just returned from a one night stay at the Black Lion and have to say it was a very good experience. Michael the manager was friendly and professional, his staff were very attentive, polite and helpful. The hotel is clean and comfortable and I would describe it as a quirky boutique hotel. We particularly liked the way the feature rooms...

We try to have regular nights away from teenage kids and general work/life chaos and attempt to choose places about an hour from where we live. Having tried The Swan at Lavenham and The Bull in Melford, my wife chose the Black Lion on a whim. It was just delightful - a cosy country hotel with attentive staff and great...

My wife and I stayed at the Black Lion as we had travelled to the South East to pick up an Orrery from a nearby specialist. (It's like a miniature solar system.....) From the nice welcome we received as we arrived Nikki and Ryan looked after us very well. The evening meal with wine was excellent as was the three-egg-omelette...

Visited Black Lion after a five year break and was disappointed. Last time visited we ate in the restaurant this time we were shown to the front bar with no choice and ate there. Food was average - service good. My reason for choosing the Black Lion was the very good offer and the that on previous occasions we had...

I love The Black Lion and have visited several times for drinks in the cosy bar with leather sofa's and warm open fire and for meals in the intimate and splendid resturant. It is just the place to take a loved one - snuggle up on the sofa in the bar for a pre dinner drink - the Pinot Grigiot...

Stayed at The Black Lion while on route to meetings in Suffolk - great place to stay and the team really made me feel welcomed. Fantastic steak dinner with a glass of wine, followed by relaxing by the fire place in the lounge. Perfect destination for a chilled out evening ready for the day ahead. The room was beautifully decorated...
