The Black Lion in Bourne End can be traced back to as early as the 14th Century to the time of Prince Edward - The Black Prince whose emblem was indeed the Black Lion. Although not the original building, records state that it was here that he stopped to water his horses for the night and stayed whilst on route to London to see King Edward III.
Today, the pub has been renovated and turned back to a traditional english pub serving local ales (which are regularly rotated on the advice of loyal locals), a wide selection of lagers and bottled beers and also wines and champagnes from around the world.
Food is served daily from midday until 9pm (6pm on Sundays) with the menu offering a wide selection of sandwiches and snacks up to hearty traditional pub food prepared from fresh on site. Catering for all tastes, the pub has rapidly become both a hot spot for business lunches and more casual affairs in the evening.
