A lively youngs pub sat prominently on a street corner. Five beers all mainstream,my Youngs Special was in decent condition if not very exciting.A nice enough pub but not a destination I would make a bee-line for.

The Black Lion is a thin Youngs corner pub that has five hand pumps that, just before Christmas, were drawing Ordinary, Special, Bombardier, Tribute and Youngs Black Lion which I imagine to be some rebadged brew. There was also a standard draught selection and the friendly barmaid served me a decent pint of Guinness without much wait even though the bar was busy. Pub grub is served during lunchtimes and early evenings and on Mondays all food is half price. There are a few plasma screens in situ, but these were all off when I visited and some festive songs were being played through the speakers. I didn’t spot any advertisements for Sky Sports (that doesn’t mean that the football isn’t shown), but I did spot the sign advertising the weekly quiz which takes place from 20:45 every Tuesday evening.

There is a decked and paved beer garden out the back for use on days that are a lot warmer than when I visited.

I probably wouldn’t go out of my way to drink here, but I would use this pub if I lived locally.
