About the Pub

This pub and restaurant was taken over by Everards in spring 2013 and still has the main emphasis on food. A former basic Morrell’s pub and then Greene King; it retains a small bar area where you can have a drink. There are 5 boutique bedrooms available. The present pub was built in 1937 in the back yard of the original dating from mid C17 which was then demolished to widen the road. Called the Black Boy since at least 1805 there was originally a painting of a black servant above the door which came from a coffee shop in Little Clarendon Street, a that time called Blackboy Lane. The rebuilt pub had a sculpted figure of a black or Moorish servant in a niche above the entrance. This was destroyed in 1990 and replaced by a painting of a sooty chimney-sweep's boy. That has also gone and now there is just a stylised BB. Refurbished and reopened 1 Dec after 5 month closure. Opens 8am for breakfast.
