Black Lion food!

15 years ago...

Just wondering if anyone has been to the Black Lion for food yet! i know it as a lively local little pub (used to be a bit grim in an endeering way before the smoking ban's refurbishment!) and it was infamously the only pub in surbiton that DIDN'T do food for YEARS - but they're advertising food and sunday lunches and i had sunday lunch last sunday and it was BRILLIANT - enormous plate of good, home-cooked food, nothing looked like it came out of a packet, and it was delicious. the weekday menu is typical pub grub but my mate had hte HOMEMADE burger in there the other day and said it was delicious - and most plates are under 6 quid! highly recommend it - think they serve till about 9 / 10ish and it really is worth it - very reasonably prices, big portions, and absolutely lovely.


I ate there and got food poisoning. Hopefully just a one off.

I've not eaten there (yet) but sat next to a family eating there last week and the food did look good. Generous potions too. The bar staff were also kind enough to carry drinks over to their table whilst they finished their meal.

try the food soon its the best home cooked pub food in town
