We were recommended this pub and stopped to have a Sunday Lunch. Quite simply, one of the best Sunday roasts I have had, excellent! Great service and nice beer.

Outstanding service, delicious lunch! Arrived at 2.20pm and were served with a smile. Good for cyclists, allowed us to charge our electric bike batteries.

Lovely village pub - amazing steak meals and super dog friendly. Delicious food, innovative choices but also pub/restaurant classics. Well cooked and beautifully presented.

Called in the Black lion for lunch today and certainly wasn’t disappointed with the service or the food, if I had a gripe I thought the menu was very limited, I would love to see local pubs doing home cooked food, liver & onions /...mince & dumplings etc proper home cooked food but like I say the food we did have was spot on and yes I would recommend this place to eat.More

Came here for a meal with my sister and ordered the madras… it was very tasty but it wasn’t a madras as it had no heat to it at all- I’d say it was more a tikka masala. Maybe don’t call it a ‘Madras’ though!

Not good poor staff let’s it down Looking at other reviews we obviously got it wrong a bad day. But we got surely staff and attitude. We only came in for drinks hardly anyone about but all it takes is a smile guys No manager...to be seen but guess early sorry but not good. I was recommended by a friend to come here but it let us down and didn’t deliver and I hope the people that run the business may need to work on staff training on how to greet a guest. I doubt I’ll return i’m Sure my review will be ignored as they will go on their great reputation. I wish them all the luck for the future. venue and location top marks. Just staff need to be addressed. I’m sorry but not great not even good.More

This is our third visit to the Black Lion for breakfast, and it never disappoints! The ingredients for breakfast are super quality and local. The new additions to the breakfast menu are a great idea, although you can't beat the full English

The Black Lion never disappoints. We've eaten here recently for dinner and last weekend for Sunday lunch and both times were excellent. There's an interesting menu with small sharing plates which are delicious together with traditional favourites and specials ... something for everyone and you...can have a sharing plate (or 2!) as a starter. Staff are great and work really hard. Its a popular place so you will need to book if you can. They also do daily breakfasts which we've yet to try but have heard that they're amazing too. What a success story.More

I went here for a works staff dinner on Friday evening. I've not been in here for many years since the running of the pub had changed hands. The food was very good and the service was alright. Can't really compare it to my previous...visits as it wouldn't be fair as it was prior to 2019 that I think I last stepped through the doors! Based on the food I was served, I would recommend "foodies" giving it a visit.More

Lovely pub with friendly staff. We ordered the Gammon with pineapple - while it was tasty, it was a bit on the salty side, the salmon was delicious, the scampi was crispy and the burgers were delicious but the halloumi was a bit over done....Overall we had good service and it was a pleasant atmosphere.More
