A lovely pub with good food. Shame we weren’t made aware of the special board as we were in a separate dining room because we had dogs, but other than this a good experience. Highly recommended.

Ok ...i really love the black lion the place is very lovely, but haven't been for a few years .
On this visit was very dissapointed with the food or lack of it .
Always loved the steak here lots of chips peas tomatoes etc, always amazing .
The steak now, well, it's a steak 1 mushroom sprig of watercress , and a tiny cup if chips .
Taste was great but for £22 pretty shocking ...pudding was a choc and coconut slice ,
a slither less than an inch wide ..with a sprinkle of choc soil ..lol..£6.
2 mouthful s ....so shocked I forgot to take a photo. I did think I'm sure it said ice cream came with it ...so asked and oh yes sorry they forgot it .
So sad as the landlady here is so lovely and the perfect host, place is lovely and warm
The new food " a la cart " menu may be great for the hay festival London folk, but for us locals I don't think so . Overpriced. So to sum it up , lovely place , nice people, tiny portions.

Having walked all round town looking for a place for our one evening meal in Hay we stopped here for a drink and stayed for dinner and we are very glad we did. The food is excellent, well cooked and delicious and served by helpful smiling staff.

Had a dinner at the Old Black Lion on a Saturday evening. Booked and the table I asked for was ready. Had starter and mains and both were well prepared and tasted fine. Lamb main in particular was well prepared.

Wine was expensive but reasonable quality. Service fine. Couple nearby table complained of cold food and had it replaced, ours was OK. We would go again.
