Velvet Magazine reviews The Black Lion

December 1, 2017

Take a look at the Chestnut Group’s latest venture – The Black Lion in Long Melford which, much like their other locations adopts an open door for all.



Renowned for their welcoming all-day dining and luxury stayover spaces, the Chestnut Group have added yet another string to their bow with the acquisition of The Black Lion in Long Melford.

After getting their hands on the property at the end of July, they have since been hard at work transforming the space so it
is in keeping with their usual style. They have retained much of the building’s quirky character and history and made 4 separate spaces downstairs. The bar is warm and welcoming thanks to the large open fireplace and the restaurant itself is best described as rustic chic. It was the drawing room and conservatory which most grabbed our attention due to the charming furniture and chilled vibe.
