It was a hot and sunny May Bank Holiday when we arrived at The Black Lion. The time was 11:30 and the doors were still closed, However our annual visit for ' Pig in a bun ' was was well worth waiting. The meat was tender and the crackling tasty,served in a fresh roll. The cost of drinks were reasonable. Yes, this was a most enjoyable visit enhanced by the friendly staff

Visited the Black Lion for a pub lunch followed by a 7 mile walk. Beautiful location. We ordered two pies. I had fish and my husband steak and Stilton. Enormous portions - difficult to finish! We paid by card and my husband wanted to add a ten percent tip. It was rounded down rather than up to make an even number by the publican - can’t fault that! Will return.

Lovely welcome and a great variety on the menu. Staff were very professional and friendly and the chicken and ham pie was delicious. Would recommend

We telephoned ahead and there was a table reserved for us. The service was excellent. The skate special was a bit dry. The portions were good. The sauvignon blanc was good. Only street parking was available. The gents loo does have an extractor fan but it is loosing the battle!
