Rob Hunter left this review about Black Lion Hotel

Visited on Saturday night. A large corner pub which appears to have had a fairly recent refurbishment. Fake filament bulb lighting adorns the bar area, there is distressed woodwork and there are several sports screens. Free Wi-Fi, a darts corner and quiz night were all advertised. Accommodation is available. The gents were fine but there was evidence of graffiti.

The pub is mainly open plan with a small separate room/section behind the bar. At the all important bar are four hand pulls, two of which were off, the others offering JW Lees Gold and JW Lees MPA. There are also two fake barrels on the back of the bar offering two Boilerhouse "craft" beers (for those unaware, these are also brewed by JW Lees). At the time of our visit there was just one girl working behind the bar who seemed busy between serving customers. Service was friendly and we were greeted with a smile when we first entered.

If it wasn't a JW Lees pub, this could be worth a return visit, but sadly their beers are not for me and as such I don't anticipate I'll be rushing back any time soon.

A large corner pub just over Blackfriars bridge. There were 4 handpumps but only 2 were on serving Landlord and Dizzy Blonde. A pool table is situated in the raised part to your left. Its not too bad.

Called in for one yesterday as part of a Salford mini crawl. There's a central servery with a few tables & chairs facing the bar and a small room to the right with a quiz machine. To the left is another nicely decorated room with a raised area. There are loads of pictures hanging on the walls now and they advertise band & theatre evenings. There are 4 handpumps on the bar two of which were off. This left the rather boring choice of Moorhouses Blond Witch and Hobgoblin. My pint of Hobgoblin was OK. This could be a very good pub if the beer range was more inventive, but at the moment it's just OK.
