|l used to go in the Black Lion back in the days when we had loads of trade union and left wing activity meetings upstairs in the 70s and 80s........l moved away for a while and last year heard it was opening again .........|
We had a campaign in Salford concerning the boundary commissions plans to abolish Salford as a Parliamentry seat.....The proprietors Mark , Jenny and Barry offered us the room to use as a base which we did,,,,,,,we also held our fundraising events and some members had personal parties there as well.........
The atmosphere and service was also good and the staff helpful .....
When they started to show films and plays upstairs l attended on a regular basis and still do,,,the plan to put food on was the icing on the cake........l am a veggie and have never had any problems getting a fine meal along with my meat eating friends...
There are now regular film and music nights and Kino films use it on a regular basis for their screenings.
The drinks available is pretty good too, whether you like non alcoholic or real ale you will be catered for .........In just over 12 months it has come on in leaps and bounds and a great place to visit.............hoping the crowds which seemed to have deserted a lot of pubs in recent years will find their way back as well...............there have been massive improvements since Future Artists took over..........give them your support folks..........john catterall ....salfordjc

|the black lion recently started food without a hygene certificate and was recently awarded a certificate after the fact.i am afraid to say their food hygene rating is number one which i am sure if you read the standard for this is very poor namely lack of awareness for food hygene with the need for major improvements in this area and other issues to be taken into consideration you can check this out on the food standards agency website as i dont know whether they have their certificate displayed in a noticable area.so just be aware of these issues before you choose to eat there|

|I called in again on Sunday, mainly to check out the food. They offer a Sunday roast, with a vegetarian option too (home made cheese and onion pie). Very palatable but rather limited portions considering the price (£6.95).|
The two beers on this occasion were Taylor's Landlord and Copper Dragon Golden Pippin. Both tasted oddly bland and the Landlord was hazy. I agree with gunninm, this is not going to be a temple for fine ales. It may take off as a centre for community arts, in the upstairs rooms, but as a pub it's struggling to find its way. The flooded floor in the gents' toilet certainly doesn't give a good impression.

|With some regret I have to agree with the recent negative comments about the real ales selection since it re-opened|
The people who have taken it over are locals and hats off to them for trying to make it a community pub.
It was never going to be 'New Oxford 2' and nor should it try to be.
If you like real ales, stick to the Oxford and Crescent

|Even after Tim's concerted efforts and extensive refurb, the place unfortunately never really "took off".|
Can't say I've stepped foot in the place since its re-opening. After the below comments, I'm not that desperate to do so anyway!
