We’ve created a series of menus that cater for all tastes from pub classics to that something a little bit more special. Whether you want to start the day with a hearty Suffolk breakfast, a casual lunch, a naughty afternoon tea or a more refined dinner from our ‘a la carte' menu. The wine list features a selection of both old and new world choices. We have provided a wide selection by the glass, and will even be tempting you to try before you buy!


The Black Lion has 10 bedrooms including snug, luxury, grand luxury and family rooms. Chestnuts interior design team has cleverly combined The Black Lion’s traditional and antique style with a luxurious and warm feel.  Choose a luxury room overlooking the beautiful village green or a cosy room with background views of the grand Cathedral. All rooms come with a flat screen TV, tea & coffee making facilities, free superfast Wi-Fi and Noble Isle bath and body products.
