Unlike the leisure centre opposite, of which this pub shares its names, it is quite unlikely youll leave The Black Lion feeling any better about yourself. A scruffy, run-down establishment, with few redeeming qualities, it is surprising how a pub like this remains in operation. On my visit last Tuesday afternoon (4th Dec) there were a grand total of 3 customers (including yours truly) in an atmosphere that can only be described as dead. I knew it wouldnt exactly be bustling, but I was a little knocked back by it. Drink selection was fairly minimal with Courage Best (though only 1.60) being the only ale. I opted for Guinness and thats where the comedy begins. It must have took the barmaid a good 5 minutes to get to grips with it and the result was myself sitting at a table and her bringing it over. To make sure further calamities didnt ensue, she even started pouring the follow up before Id finished it! A couple of school kids entered the pub shortly after and that was when I really wanted to leave. I noticed there is a room with a pool table to the back of the pub and a beer garden as well, but honestly, I wont be checking it out! The singular quality this pub possesses is the fact that the staff seemed friendly. I wouldnt visit.
