Given some of the recent reviews for The Black Boy on Tripadvisor, we wondered what sort of experence to expect. We booked online and arrived 10 minutes early, to be received by an extremely friendly member of staff, who showed us to our table and asked for drinks orders. He explained that the daily menu changed regularly (daily perhaps?!) and we ordered from that. My tomato and basil soup was tasty and hot, served with lovely fresh bread and my wife's lobster tail and broad bean rissotto was descriped as "excellent". Our roast beef, with yorkshire pudding and crisp, nicely cooked veg was scrummy - 3 thick slices of beef, cooked pink but not bloody. We shared a chocolate brownie served with a delicate mint ice cream, which was scrummy too.
Good choice of wine, plenty of choices by the glass; fresh bread plus tap water quickly offered; excellent service from all 3 members of staff; not too expensive (good value in fact) and a pleasent ambiance will ensure we return.
