My brother and I took our mother out for lunch and found this lovely pub. The food was tasty and the staff friendly. Reasonably priced too. The servings were decent sizes, couldn't finish all of mine, lots of scampi with the chips and peas. My mother had salmon which was nicely presented with sauted new potatoes, parsnips and carrots

I visited the Black boy for Sunday lunch with my partner. It was great value at around £8. Home cooked potatoes, Yorkshires and a good portion of Lamb perfectly cooked. Service was attentive and I would definitely recommend if you are in Sudbury. Good beers too !!

Popped in to The Black Boy for lunch on a visit to Sudbury from Colchester. Haven't been in this Greene King pub for probably 8 -10 years. It has changed for the better but, although we did enjoy our meals, we had a very long wait and it wasn't frantically busy either. Nice serving staff!

Stayed in a double room for one and it was comfortable and spacious. Black boy was located in the heart of town and right next to the weekend market. Convenient if you drive as there is also parking available. However, do avoid carrying heavy/bulky luggage as the rooms are on the 2nd floor onwards as the stairwell is pretty narrow

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

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
