The Black Lion - Long Melford
This was our first time at the Black Lion and it will not be our last. We had been advised that the new head chef was special and we were not disappointed. Beautifully presented, inventive combinations for our starters and an exceptional traditional Sunday roast will ensure that we return to sample the evening menu on subsequent occasions. This head chef will ensure that the 2 AA rosettes recently awarded will almost certainly be joined by a third in the future. Thank you and well done all.
Lovely stay - staff very friendly, room comfortable, excellent toiletries supplied, good food.
We came for Sunday lunch, and were really excited when we first arrived as the ambience of the restaurant was really lovely. We were immediately expecting a really special meal. The menu read roast beef, lamb or pork, I took the pork which was lovely, my partner had the beef he was also pleased with that however my grandmother ordered the roast lamb, to find it wasn’t a roast lamb it was in fact braised lamb. She unfortunately did not enjoy her meal at all, the menu should really have stated that it would be braised lamb. The side dishes of vegetables were lovely however the roast potatoes and “honey roast parsnips” were certainly not roasted and overall made the dinner rather disappointing. Unfortunately we won’t be going back.
As always, very good 👍 thank you see you next time
Cannot fault the food but its pricey. £20+ main course is one thing but to charge £4 per side of veg extra? Great meal but two people, two courses with three drinks for nearly £100, brace yourself.
Very disappointed. A very small cut of beef for £23, no vegetables ... a very empty plate for a high price. Starters and mains average. Service friendly but untrained. A large bill at the end of the evening for a very very disappointing meal. This view was shared by the remainder of our party. Certainly not value for money and was actually shocked when it became clear that there were no further side dishes on the way to accompany the main meal. We tried but wouldn’t return to dine.
Lovely dinner with helpful staff. Had the duck which was delicious and a great cocktail after.
Nice location with decent food but service was haphazard unfortunately
For country inn cuisine, the food served at The Black Lion is outstanding with an interesting and varied menu. The food is well presented. The service is friendly and professional.
A lovely place. The rooms have been refurbished to a very good standard. The food was almost 5 star quality. The bar/pub section is a bit of a weak link, but it is fine.
Really great relaxed evening with proper food using stunning ingredients
Whilst we were expecting our sunday lunch meal to be very good, we were all very pleased that it was even better than expected. The fear when going to a resptaurant for a late sunday lunch is that the roast potatoes will be less crisp and the yorkshire puddings a little past their best. However this was definitiely not the case here. Everything was cooked to perfection. The only slight disappointment - although to be expected later in the day - was the reduced choice of sunday lunch menu items that had sold out before we got there.
Great lunch and they even gave us a private room for 8 of us without even asking!
Great service which is rare these days. Food was delicious. Will be returning
Comfortable, good service which was leisurely but efficient, a great Sunday roast lunch which was (nearly) as good as home, fairly priced
Staff were very friendly and food was good. Lovely place.
The room was lovely with a very comfy bed. We were able to have our table as long as we wanted it and the service was excellent without being rushed. Both the evening meal and breakfast were very good. The only slight comment I would make is that the bath had no slip may in it for use with the shower.
Food & service are always excellent. Great choice on the Sunday lunch menu.
Very happy with the evening. A good venue for dinner. Relaxed but efficient, and the food was very good. Definitely recommended.
Lovely food and plenty of it. Great service by professional staff.

Booked Sunday Lunch, pleasant surroundings and the restaurant had a homely ambience. The staff were very professional, polite, extremely friendly and knowledgeable.
We had the roast which was very well cooked and presented and I must say the seasonal vegetables were cooked to perfection. We had the three course which was priced just right.?A very good selection of wines and beers, the whole experience was a joy. Well worth a visit.
Dear Ralph, All the team here at the black lion are pleased you enjoyed your Sunday with us so much. Thank you again for your custom and we look forward to welcoming you back to us. Thank you again for your review. Kind Regards Rhys Williams General Manager
Food was fantatic service was fantastic the only thing i could complain about was the door beside us keep banging apart from that 5 star ...
HI Cathy, Thank you for your 5 star review. Feedback is very important to us, in light of that could you specify what door kept banging during your visit? I can then look into the cause and get this rectified. Again thank you for taking the time to leave your review, its much appreciated. Kind Regards Rhys Williams General Manager
Good for lunch. Wide choice of food and wine. Pleasant service
Had a fun and giggly evening at The Black Lion tonight. I absolutley loved the atmosphere in the bar. I notified the kitchen about my vegeterian and glutenfree diet when making my reservation. We had two delicious vegeterian starters, the creamy goat cheese with beetroot and caramelised walnuts was amazing. The kitchen made a special vegeterian main course for me on the night, which was broccoli with roasted potatoes, blue cheese and nuts. Loved It! Great service! Will be back again 🙂
Dear Marie, Thank you for taking the time to leave this review. I'm very pleased you had a great experience here at the Black Lion. We look forward to welcoming you back to us in the near future. Kind Regards Rhys Williams General Manager
Service was fine
Bread late to table so it arrived same time as my food
My wife’s chicken was cold but they tried to heat it using hot gravy
I just had one course and they charged me £17 they told the table next to me one course was £16!!
Good food, well presented. Pleasant surroundings, good value.
The food was wonderful, very seasonal and presented beautifully.
Very attentive service and knowledgable staff.
Slightly noisy table close by, but they were having a good time so can’t really complain at that
Exceptional food, fantastic service and a very cosy, relaxing atmosphere. An ideal place to go!
Nice and relaxing restaurant and the food was very nice . Parking the car was a problem as only a small amount of spaces available , so had to park up the road . Staff at the black lion was very polite and made ya feel very welcome.
We keep coming back to The Black Lion because it offers fantastic food, wonderful service and a beautifully comforting welcome. Breakfast, lunch or dinner - would not hesitate to recommend.
The food was outstanding.
So much flavour.
Fantastic place to eat.
Lovely decor and setting. Food was good but not as excellent as it should have been for the price. Service was good but not great. Eg not enough menues and took along time and a reminder to the waitress for more to come. Poor meet and greet. House wine not available and disappointing mille feuille dessert.
Saw this pub in Times article but did not meet expectation
They seem to be overtrading and therefore not meeting the basics
Overall, we very much enjoyed our lunch at the Black Lion. Our only criticism would be that the food could have been hotter when it reached the table and one or two items (particularly the Yorkshire puddings) suffered somewhat from being cooked too far in advance. Nevertheless we will return.
