This was our first visit to this restaurant and it came highly recommended.We had a family meal on Saturday night. The choice and quality of food was very good. The service and the atmosphere was excellent. We could really recommend the Black Lion.

Visited with a friend & my 11 month old daughter & they couldn't do enough to accommodate us. The waitress was very attentive & friendly. We both had sandwiches from the lunch menu which were freshly made with good quality ingredients & they were huge! Will return next time I visit Richmond.

We stayed one night on New Year's Eve as we were booked into a restaurant just down the road. A bit pricey on NHew Year's Eve (double the normal rate) but hey, that's the way it goes. Friendly staff, food looked interesting, comfy bed and tasty, freshly cooked breakfast. Hopefully we'll be back!

This was our annual pre Christmas get together with two other couples. The hotel is located just off the town square on a quiet street. It was a coaching house and the building retains some of that character. We were greeted with a friendly smile and although we arrived around 11.30am we once checked in were taken to our rooms....

Popped in here for lunch this week. Pleasant unobtrusive staff, great food and clean, comfortable decor. Portions and prices are also very reasonable. The lunch menu not extensive, but it covers all bases. Will definitely be returning.

Absolutely lovely 2 course meal, great service, lovely place, I had garlic mushroom starter and were divine, followed by steak which was cooked to perfection and lovely and tender and a decent size, one critique is on reaching the table it wasn't very hot so maybe it had been rested too long. Didn't want to complain as it was so...

Enjoyed a delicious sandwich here today and a generous pot of tea. Both were very pleasing as we were very hungry. We were served very promptly. Prices were reasonable, and together with the sandwich we were served with a generous portion of coleslaw and a decent amount of salad. It felt very 'homely' here and a nice place to relax....

Stumbled across this place and decided to have lunch. We just had sandwiches(BLT and Brie and bacon), which came with salad. Both choices were yummy and very filling! The landlord and bar staff were very friendly

This hotel is located in the centre of town. It is very friendly and the food is exceptional piping hot too. We stayed for two nights there was a welcome tray with plenty of tea coffee and biscuits, plenty of choice for breakfast also,would recommend a stay there. This was a chicken parmesan with real chips and salad and coleslaw...
