Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We have been twice to the Black lion this week so far. Very good service and the food was excellent. We have had a vegetarian lasagne and a beef lasagne and they were fresh and delicious. A couple of nights later we had the butternut...squash curry with lime and coconut. A katsu curry and both dishes were so superb. I mentioned to the barman that the food was excellent. He said the chef was Indian and I replied I can tell he loves to cook and authentic food too. Really yummy. May go back for a 3rd meal before returning home after our break away. Thanks chef your food was amazing.More

Had two great meals both from specials board.....chef must be complimented. Only downside was no drinks table service having to leave our meal to order drinks at the bar .... However this is easily rectified and did not take the shine off a great meal....Would certainly make another visit our priority.More

We visited as a family of 7 for lunch one Saturday. We were seated quickly in the restaurant and had beautiful views of the garden and sea beyond. We were served promptly and politely; our food was plentiful and very tasty! We loved the decor...inside and found the restaurant and toilets to be very clean. We would highly recommend and will definitely return!More

We booked Sunday lunch and must say it was stunning! Could not fault any of it. A variety of fresh veg, really tender beef, tasty gravy and a massive Yorkshire pudding! What more can you ask for. We ate in the garden which is a...lovely location overlooking the sea. All in all would definitely recommend going here.More

Had fish and chips. The batter was soggy and not cooked. Poor quality peas but chips OK. Staff were disconnected and did not ask if the food was OK. Pity as the location is great overlooking the bay.
