The Black Lion is now the only public house operating in the historic village of Appledore (in days past there were five). Appledore can trace its history back to the Viking times when it was a busy port. In earlier times, the pub was known as The Red Lion, but was changed more recently by the current owners.
Today, The Black Lion is one of the ‘go to’ places in Appledore, with a traditional English pub and restaurant. It is owned by Ray and Sandra Cottingham, who are happy to welcome locals and visitors alike to their premises.
