Old Boots left this review about The Black Lion Inn

Roomy village pub just outside the entrance to the tourist destination of Newby Hall. Two tastefully decorated bars, one a standard but comfortable Public with a darts board and a pool table, the other more a formal dining room although it is labelled as a lounge bar. A "Jennings" tied house with three sets of three pull beer engines, sadly only chilly Cumberland Ale available plus the usual kegs. GL cider and Marston's variety of Smooth are also there. The Cumberland was distinctly appley (acetaldehyde) once it had warmed to drinking temperature, that's probably down to Marstons who have wrecked what was once a great beer. The food here is very good, a range of prices and certainly good value. Service in the lounge was much more restaurant style than village local.
