Bed & Breakfast and Dining in Hay-On-Wye

A relaxing and comfortable bed & breakfast and restaurant situated in the historic book town of Hay-On-Wye.

The Lions Gate once guarded the historic Hay-On-Wye castle and is home to this 17th Century Inn. Steeped in history and myth it is reputed that Oliver Cromwell stayed at The Old Black Lion whilst the round-heads besieged Hay Castle.
Located on aptly named Lion Street in Hay-on-Wye this mixture of olde-worlde charm and new Century finesse in this Grade II listed building boasts award winning food with an ambiance and service to match.
Our rooms allow you space to relax and enjoy the magical air of the Welsh borders and your dining experience can be found in the bar, restaurant or cosy Lion’s Den.
Let yourself sit back and unwind at The Old Black Lion and revel in good food, great times and fond memories.
