Time to drink Champagne, and dance on the ceiling!

Eat, drink and Be Merry... the Black Lion Philosophy

Valentine's Day at The Black Lion

Valentine’s at The Black Lion


So we’re a little premature… but whilst January can leave us cold, Valentine’s warms the cockles! We’re already planning the menu and rather than keep it for one night, we’ll be celebrating all week!

For us, it’s all about atmosphere – great food, a little (ok, a lot) of wine, a cackling fire and great company! We can provide most, you bring the latter!

Bookings now being taken!

Sunday Lunch at the Black Lion Babell

Sunday Lunch at the Black Lion Bar & Eatery

There’s something special about Sundays – or at least there should be! It used to be about the day of rest but it seems the norm to cram as much in as possible in these days. We aim to put that right for you with our Sunday Lunch at the Black Lion Babell.

So on Sundays, as well as serving some pretty spectacular Sunday roasts from the menu as you’d expect, we also serve Sunday Sharing Roasts. They need to be pre-ordered by Friday (it’s all fresh here) but you can choose any roast you’d like. We’ll serve it for you and your troop along with the best roasties, Yorkshire Puds (regardless of what meat you choose), roasted veg, sweet potato mash and all the greens. And when you want a little bit more, well you can just help yourself!
