Had dinner in the black on a sunday lunchtime when visiting with friends recently. The food was out of this world the type you would expect from a Hyatt regency. I had Lamb which was really amazing. We all had pudding too. The cheesecake was really nice.The service was excellent. The lady behind the bar really knew about the beers...

Stayed here for a couple of nights. Once again we were looked after very well by the owners. Good food drink and atmosphere, competitive prices, if you're exploring hidden Wales this is the place to stay.

Moved to the area recently and happened upon The Black Lion. Have visited a few times since, all v nice meals. Staff always friendly and a lovely home made pizza or burger with a pint for a very reasonable £7.50. Lovely traditional pub/ hotel and open every day

Arrived slightly wet after a day cycle in the Welsh hills and were very happy to find such a great spot for dinner. The staff were really helpful and let us put our bikes safe in the back , and went along with my strange request for a hot squash :) Really tasty food, the rabbit curry was just what...

Stayed with a group of friends for a single night. The welcome, atmosphere and general "craic" in the Black Lion is brilliant. Such a lovely bunch of people running the place, and the locals were really welcoming too. Huge choice on the menu; the food was well cooked and very reasonably priced. Nice rooms too. This place is located in...

We really enjoyed the atmosphere here. Great meal in the bar with good chat amongst other guests. Lovely room. Altogether would enjoy returning another day but on horse trek so ever on to the next pub!

stopped for some lunch and a drink en-route on a mountain biking trip. Friendly staff, good choices of food which was well presented and tasted good, Nice inside and a good old building. Only stayed for an hour so nothing else to mention

Stayed the night in the big family room, this was the only downside to the stay, considering the pub is full of tradition and history the room was bland with cheap fittings. Lovely breakfast, really friendly staff, would definitely stay again. But like I said a little bit of love and investment in the rooms would go a long way...

Given there is an alternative across the road which I recced I just ordered a wild boar pate starter which was very good. See separate review Red Lion for rest of meal! The room...

“If you need plenty of space or are staying for more than one/two nights ask for a room in the converted stable block. They are much larger than the above-pub rooms and have a really useful porch area for storing boots, coats, etc.”
TheWalkersWife, 13 Aug 2014 | Read review
“Room 7 is the family room. It has steep steps to access it and no facilities for anyone travelling with babies or young children. There are small windows letting in little light. The balcony area is scruffy and overlooks the owner's washing!”
