Nestled in the picturesque village of Lynsted in Kent, The Black Lion is a family-run freehouse and restaurant at the heart of the community. Since its acquisition by the current landlord and landlady in 2016, the establishment has undergone a remarkable transformation, cementing its position as a hub of local life.

The Black Lion’s journey has been one of resilience and adaptation, particularly in the face of the challenges posed by the Covid-19 pandemic. Rather than succumbing to the setbacks of lockdowns, which took a toll on the hospitality sector, the proprietors seized the opportunity to reimagine and revitalise the pub, ensuring it emerged stronger than ever before.


Now, with a dynamic team at the helm, including the landlord and landlady's daughter, alongside a seasoned local chef, The Black Lion offers a warm welcome and a culinary experience to remember.

The family-friendly venue prides itself on its welcoming, comfortable atmosphere, characterised by open fires and a beautiful beer garden. From the bar, popular local and national beers and ales are served, as well as quality wines by the glass and bottle, and there is an excellent selection of whiskey, gin and other spirits to discover.


The food menu features an array of traditional pub classics and daily specials, crafted using locally sourced seasonal produce. Whether you're craving a hearty Sunday roast with all the trimmings, a homemade vegetarian delight or a signature Black Lion beef or chicken burger, there's something to suit every palate.

An OAP menu is available, as well as gluten free options, and the kitchen, which boasts a 5 Food Hygiene Rating, is able to cater to other dietary requirements too.


Beyond its culinary offerings, The Black Lion boasts a dedicated function room perfect for special celebrations. From intimate gatherings to larger events such as wedding receptions and corporate functions, the team goes above and beyond to ensure every occasion is memorable.

Whether you're a local looking for a cosy spot to unwind with friends or a visitor eager to experience the warmth of village hospitality, The Black Lion invites you to step inside and make yourself at home.
