The building is a mix between old and new, and houses a traditional bar area with wood-burning stoves and slate floors, and a newly extended dining room with French doors, leading out to a patio area with outside seating. The views take in the rolling countryside of Anglesey, and look out towards the Snowdonia Mountain range in the distance.
There are two large en-suite bedrooms, one being a family room with a sofa bed, the second also a large double with room for a futon or cot. Well-behaved dogs are welcome in a designated area of the bar area and in the bedrooms.
Recently Leigh and Mari have decided to hand over the responsibility of running The Black Lion to a local mother and daughter team, who have been running catering businesses at Oriel Môn and Llynnon Mill for the past 12 years. They see a gap in the market for this part of the Island, and rather than opening as a public house, or as a fine dining destination as it has been recently, they will open as a daytime eatery serving all homemade food, using local produce, serving hot food, sandwiches, afternoon teas, and cakes, (lots of them), with barista standard coffees using locally roasted coffee, handmade herbal lose leaf teas, and hot chocolates using real chocolate flakes. There is also a shop selling local gifts, food & drink, books and local crafts.
Mae Gwenan ac Annest yn edrych ymlaen i’r her o gyd-redeg busnes Blas Mwy yn y Black Lion, wedi blynyddoedd o weithio arwahan, roedd yn amser i’r ddwy ddod a’i cryfderau ar y cyd a dod a rhywbeth unigryw i’r Ynys, adeilad hanesyddol, llawn cymeriad yn gweini bwyd traddodiadol gyda teimlad cyfoes. Roedd tê prynhawn yn andros o boblogaidd yn eu caffis yn Oriel Môn a Melin Llynnon felly bydd posib parhau i’w mwynhau yn yr adeilad cartrefol hwn hefyd. A’n ddiweddar agorodd Annest siop ym Melin Llynnon a’i thrawsnewid i siop Gymreig, gyfoes llawn llyfrau a chardiau Cymraeg, anrhegion, bwyd a diod a dyma fydd yn y siop newydd ‘SiopA’ - digon o ddewis i bawb, mewn lleoliad cyfleus ar ochr yr A5025.
