Alan Winfield left this review about Black Lion

The Black Lion is a decent looking pub that is situated opposite the village church.
Once inside there was a single room with the bar facing,there was a tropical fish tank next to the bar,there was one long bench seat facing the bar with small stools,there was a small lounge area to the left and a small dining area to the right.
The pub seemed a bit run down and i was the only customer in here on my mid afternoon visit,there was a TV showing rugby.
There were two pumps on the bar both having Marstons Pedigree on,this was a decent enough drink.
