Black Lion Hotel

Certificate of Excellence
A 700 year old coaching inn with seven en-suite bedrooms, several with original medieval feature walls and windows. The restaurant serves modern British cuisine and is based on what local seasonal ingredients are available from the farmers and fishermen. There is all day tapas and light snacks and during the winter they serve a sit in or takeaway "soup kitchen" menu. A la carte is available lunch and dinner. The bar serves several local cask ales and ciders, the usual selection of lagers, spirits and wines and has a good top shelf of Scotch and Whiskey.

We've booked for a visit shortly, so i was just wondering if breakfast was included in the price, or is it to be paid for as an extra
I booked for bed and breakfast. Lovely breakfast, the best breakfast I've tasted in a long time, cooked just the way I liked it. all the food was delicious. Enjoy.

"check the plans of the rooms on their website as they vary in size."
"Can't help. we didn't stay here but I would imagine the quality is high."
"Cooked breakfast is a must and definitely try out a lunch or evening meal."
"Large double room worth the extra money and had a spare single bed so good for child accompanying."
"Of the four rooms we booked, each had it's own charm and character.."
US$120 - US$140 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
