“The Black Lion is a charming old black and white building in the historic market town of Nantwich, set just a stone’s throw from the River Weaver, and is second only to Chester for its wealth of historic buildings within Cheshire. This traditional Inn dates back to 1664, built twenty years after the Great Battle of Nantwich 26th January 1644, which has a re-enactment every year, as Holly Holy Day, on its anniversary. The characterful interior features low beams, open brickwork and wattle and daub along with wooden and stone floors. Downstairs offers three separate areas with the welcome of a roaring open fire in the colder months in the front bar. Upstairs you will find the main dining area, with old wooden tables and various artefacts and then also a lounge area with sumptuous leather sofas. Attention is focused on providing an excellent selection of Real Ales, three permanents from a local brewery along with three frequently changing Guest Beers. Combine this with a menu of home cooked dishes, (where as much as possible is sourced locally) and friendly attentive service and you have the recipe for a very enjoyable and memorable visit.
