Decent enough for myself
I was just as happy as I can be with the room rented for four nights, the only issues were odd leftovers from the last visitors The staff were very approachable and helpful when I checked in. I would suggest the stay is suitable for those who is not too critical or high expectation. The bathroom was a mild commute but still held high standard of cleanliness and amenities.

Firstly, what super friendly and helpful staff from the moment we arrive. The Black Lion is a magnificent pub, with such charm. The daytime bar staff were friendly and helpful. The room its self was basic but clean and comfortable, with fresh linen and towels. It was lovely and warm in the evening. We would have no hesitation in recommending staying here. (the only thing which was a letdown was no extra pillows plus I had the lumpy one)

So much character
The Hotel/Pub is stunning inside and out and the staff couldnโ€™t do enough for me. The room needs a little updating but was comfortable enough for my needs. I ate from the Pub 1 night and found the food a little basic. However the overall experience was excellent and the decor in the pub itself was great. I will stay there again most definitely.
