The Black Lion - Pub and Restaurant

About Us

The Black Lion is a cosy, friendly village pub run by a husband and wife team. We are situated in the picturesque village of Abergorlech which lies on the banks of the Cothi River between Llandeilo and Carmarthen.

Just a few steps from the pub you can take advantage of signposted walks in the Brechfa forest or the thrilling Brechfa Mountain Bike Trails.

As well as our traditional Welsh bar, we have a restaurant/coffee shop serving home-made food produced and sourced locally in Wales wherever possible. All of our cakes are also home-made.

We serve locally roasted Coaltown Coffee and some yummy Teapigs teas. Our suppliers include Rhosyn Farm who not only supply our pork and lamb, but also make our delicious sausages and burgers.


Our menus provide a good choice of home-made dishes and we like to add some specials, but don’t expect to see these every time you come as we feel that ‘specials’ should be just that!

Vegetarian and gluten free options are available and we can cater for vegans with a little notice.

We are very relaxed here and you can choose to eat and drink in the bar (where well behaved dogs are welcome) or in the coffee shop/restaurant. Muddy bikers and walkers are also welcome (floors are easily washed!!!).

If possible, we appreciate bookings especially at weekends when we can be busier.

We are usually open all day; our daytime menu is served from 11am - 3pm and our evening menu from 6.30pm but if you are hungry later/earlier than this please ask as we will always try to find you something to eat!

There is parking at the front of the pub and we also have disabled access and wc.
