The Old Black Lion is a 4 Star inn which has 10 quality en-suite bedrooms situated in either the Main Building, the Coach House or the Cottage.
We are proud to have an AA Rosette for our food and our team of talented chefs serve up a mouth-watering menu every day and use the finest seasonal and local produce to create new specials on a weekly basis. So, however often you drop in you'll always find something new to try on the menu. We have two dining areas, in the Main Bar or in the Cosy Den

We have Jazz on EVERY Friday in the Main Bar from 8.30pm!

Hay on Wye is situated on the River Wye and surrounded by stunning countryside and overlooked by the Black Mountains. It is an international destination for bibliophiles, with over twenty fascinating bookshops to browse. There are also many boutique shops and so much to be discovered. There is a popular market every Thursday held just below the Castle walls selling local produce and crafts.
So you can shop till you drop and then come back and enjoy a refreshing beverage or a delicious meal.
