NOTICE: Venues need your support more than ever as they recover following the pandemic.

COVID restrictions are no longer a legal requirement in pubs and clubs, but please be aware that many venues will choose to keep some measures in place for the safety of customers and staff.

Opening hours and services may be different to those displayed here. Before visiting or ordering from any venue, we strongly advise you to check its website or social media, or get in touch with them first to avoid disappointment.

If you see any details here that need updating, please let us know by submitting updates on the pub.


The Black Lion has been awarded a Covid Recovery Grant. We will making our loos, much nicer and much warmer! Lots of instant hot water and single occupancy helping us to keep everyone safe. But it's a big job and so it means we won't be open on 17th May as we had hoped. It also means that we will have to stop doing takeaway food, we have plans for that too...
We will keep you updated as we have more news, just please wish us good luck and we all look forward to seeing you as soon as we can.

About the Pub

Nationally recognised for its commitment to real cider, hidden away a minute from the Market Place, this welcoming, comfortable gem is a great place to relax. The open fire features in the single, open plan room, with a pool table to the rear and TV sport to the front. Local charities benefit from the efforts of the pub, and more than six ciders can be on offer. North East Region Cider pub of the year 2013, 2016 and 2018, and local branch Country Cider Pub of the Year 2013-2018 and 2020.

Longer summer hours may be in operation rather than the winter ones quoted here but best to check in advance if travelling.
