About the Pub

This is substantial black and white timbered building with parts dating from the 17th Century. After a extensive refurbishment it reopened in May 2014 becoming Wetherspoons first pub in Montgomeryshire. This grade II listed three-storey building is a ‘17th-century timber-framed lobby-entry plan house, refronted in brick in the late 18th century’, with a modern extension to the ground floor. To the right of the wooden entrance porch is an archway into the former stables. In 1828, Thomas Reese was the landlord at the Black Boy. Richard George’s many years as licensee ended with his death in 1875. In 1891, the landlady was a 67-year-old widow, Mrs Georgina Owen. At that time, there were still iron railings at the front of the inn. The front seating areas to either side of the entrances retain comfortable secluded leather seating whilst the rear half could be said to resemble a cafe.
