The Black Lion Abergorlech is a warm, casual Country Pub and Restaurant located in the beautiful Cothi Valley. You can find us just a few steps from the Abergorlech entrance to Brechfa forest. With its stunning walks and Mountain Bike trails it is a truly magical place where the River Gorlech merges with the Cothi.
Since we bought, renovated and re-opened the Black Lion Abergorlech in 2017 our goal has been to serve delicious drinks and home cooked food using as many high quality, local, Welsh ingredients as possible. You’ll find Coaltown Coffee, local ales and many modernised pub classics but also some surprises! In short, we are a traditional pub with a bit of a modern twist.
After you’ve allowed yourself to unwind a bit, perused the day’s menu, and perhaps chosen your favourite tipple, feel free to make a friend or two. The people of Abergorlech are a big part of what makes this place special. After all, we’re more than just good food and drink - we’re a community.
Hope to see you soon
Phil and Lyn, and the Black Lion Team
Our tasty, homemade food combines updated traditional dishes with some surprises. We source and use as much local Welsh produce as possible on our menu and believe strongly in the use of good seasonal ingredients, prepared and cooked well. We mince 100% Welsh beef to make our own burgers and our homemade desserts are often accompanied by one of our ice-creams all of which are made from Welsh double cream.
Obviously there are a wide range of drinks available to choose from at the bar but we are proud to have many wonderful Welsh products to choose from too. Our choices include award winning Single Malt Whiskies, Brecon Gins and Siddiqui Brown Rum from Penderyn in the Brecon Beacons, Flavoured Gins from Aber Falls in North Wales, Organic Oak aged Gin from the Da Mhile Distillery in Llandysul and Barti Ddu Seaweed Rum named after the notorious Welsh pirate.
We serve local Welsh lager and cider on draught - Liberty Lager and Red Hog cider are both from Llandeilo and are Gluten free and vegan.
It's always real ale time and of course ours are always Welsh!
We serve a guest ale from the fantastic Tenby Harbwr Brewery which changes weekly - from M.V. Enterprise to North Star, from Sea Bass to Tamar's Tusk, they are all different but all delicious.
Our second real ale offering is from Evan Evans in Llandeilo - Warrior is a classic Welsh ale, distinctive, malty and full-bodied.
Our coffee of choice is Coaltown from Ammanford. We serve Candle Light No1 Espresso, it has a deep dark flavour and makes a wonderful espresso. We also use Coaltown's decaffeinated offering - Jenkin Jones for those who love great coffee but don't do caffeine!
