We had a lovely large room overlooking the Market Square, room 3. High ceilings and old Inn charm i.e leaded light windows, fireplace. We sat in the bay window in 2 comfortable chairs, drinking a glass of wine and watching the world go by. The bed was large and comfortable. The room was clean. Also very private. We ate a... More

The Black Boy pub is right in the centre of Sudbury, is spotlessly clean, comfy beds and nice clean white towels, they are accommodating too. We got there and had been given a room on the top floor I a disabled and find stairs difficult, , when asked they immediately changed us to a low floor. Although we didn't eat... More

Have been to Sudbury many times never stayed in the Black Boy. We knew it had recently had a makeover so we popped in to have a drink with the intention of maybe staying in the next few months, glad we did as the blonde lady behind the bar was rude and lacked people skills as potential new customers she...

stopped for lunch yesterday, first impressions were good, was shown to a table, took a seat and ordered our drinks. Problem was that every time someone walked past the back of my wife's seat they were bumping her, not a major problem in its self, but annoying. So we took it upon ourselves to move to another table, note the... More

I stayed here with my husband and other family members. We all had really lovely rooms - fairly basic but spacious, comfortable and really clean. The landlord and landlady were really friendly and helpful. We had lunch here which was great - good portions and really tasty. Would definitely recommend it to anyone wanting a break.

We booked the Black Boy for an overnight stay, it's a lovely old Inn in a pretty town centre. Really delighted with our room, overlooking the town centre. Very large and spacious, with a large clean bathroom. I would say newly refurbished. Only small criticism was the bed was a bit uncomfortable. The pub area is nice, had a good... More

Nice friendly staff, good location in the centre of town. We were on the top floor so a bit of a climb for those with dodgey knees. Room was clean & tidy with seperate bathroom also seperate bedroom for 3rd person. Breakfast was appreciated after a night on the beer!
