The Black Lion Hotel Suffolk and Essex

“A charming hotel, overlooking the village Green. Classic English interiors with antique pieces, bold florals and roaring fireplaces. The award winning restaurant serves up locally sourced seasonal produce in a variety of settings, from formal dining to Al Fresco in the walled garden. A family spot.”

“Six years ago hotelier Craig Jarvis bought this 17th-century inn with a colourful history and transformed it into a hotel full of quirky character. Downstairs, with its comfortable bar, informal bistro and elegant dining room, there’s no hint of the extravagant bedrooms upstairs: some exotically flamboyant, others coolly romantic. Sink into one of the bar’s squashy sofas for a drink before a first-rate dinner.”
