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

After a five hour drive the staff couldn't do enough to make comfortable. The bar was welcoming and my steak perfect. I slept well in a comfortable bed and had a terrific breakfast. I hope to be staying again shortly and I'm looking forward to it.

Arrived in Richmond hungry and happened upon the Black Lion. All three of us ordered fish and chips and were very impressed with the quality of everything in the plate. The local beers were delicious and staff professional, friendly and helpful. Would go back in a flash.

We stayed at the Black Lion on a spur of the moment, 'book and go'. It was quite pricey at £90 for bed and breakfast accommodation over a pub, but it was a Saturday night. Great location - right in the middle of Richmond with plenty of points of interest within easy walking distance. On arrival, there is no reception...

Lunch time on a Saturday and we were short of time so we wanted a quick meal. We were very pleased with the service and the quality of the pub food. The menu was exciting and varied and we really enjoyed our visit. Staff were friendly and helpful. AA 2 Star rating, Recommended.
