What better way to experience rural East Anglia than striding through the fields, gun in hand and dogs at foot. The region’s unique natural beauty and low-lying landscape make it a fabulous setting for your shoot.


Located on the outskirts of the picturesque village of Long Melford, just off the A134, The Black Lion is within easy reach of many of the large shoots in the region.


Our ten deeply comfortable en-suite bedrooms, nine of which are dog-friendly, offer the perfect place for guests to rest their heads.  To top off your stay, our award-winning restaurant celebrates the fabulous provenance that East Anglia has to offer, making the most of a variety of fresh, locally sourced produce.


If you arrange the shoot, we will take care of everything else. The Black Lion offers an exclusive shooting experience tailored specifically for your party; this can include private dining, a personal Land Rover service and award-winning food. Choose from a selection of our services or take it all: 

  • A private Land Rover service to take you to and from your shoot

  • A hearty Suffolk breakfast (served early if required)

  • Fully insured gun cabinets

  • Dog-friendly accommodation

  • Private dining; where you can enjoy a delicious shoot dinner with your party
