Excellent dining

Previous guests have enjoyed breakfast, commenting favourably on the standard of service and the atmosphere as well as the first-rate food. Guests are often so impressed with breakfast that they choose to have lunch or an evening meal at the pub. These meals also attract positive feedback.

Great location

Feedback suggests that previous guests have found the location of the Black Lion appealing. Situated in a quiet village, quiet is all but guaranteed. There are some great walks in the immediate surroundings and when you want to explore, the pub is centrally located to many popular destinations and attractions.

Negative Reviews

Occasional issues in the restaurant

Reviews of the letting rooms at the Black Inn are exclusively favourable. Negative feedback that has cropped up has tended to relate to an occasional poor meal in the restaurant. However, since the majority of guests have enjoyed dining here, the issues raised are likely just one-offs.

Minor points

Guest reviews of the Black Inn suggest that there is little to be concerned about here. Guests occasionally mention that the parking seems limited and that there are too few cosy nooks in the bar but that's about where negative comments end.
