The sign out front declares this to be the oldest pub in Epping. True, it looks pretty old, but it's high street position somewhat detracts from the quaintness dial being turned up beyond a six. The smaller of the two bars on offer hosted our visit and is bedecked with wooden beams, a giant fireplace and décor from the late 1970s (which is as 'traditional' as it sometimes gets these days). Amongst the usual lagers was a nice selection of three well kept ales and whoever was choosing the music should be congratulated on their selection of classics, which covered the Small Faces, The Who, Bowie, Pink Floyd and Roxy Music on our visit. The nearby competition is pretty poor if truth be told (once you've seen one Ember Inn, you've seen 'em all) but the Black Lion is still a great pub in it's own right.
