The Black Lion is like a welcoming beacon in the darkness that is Kilburn High Road. This place is a wasteland for food and drink, we were walking along for ages trying to find a decent pub that we could go into for dinner and eventually this place shone out of the rain!

It's quite a large space with a separate bar and dining room. We grabbed a big squashy couch and settled in with drinks to...more
