Decided to stay in Black Boy overnight, during my 10d trip visiting friends and family in East Anglia. I wanted a bit of British pub inn charm, but got poor sleep, terrible breakfast and regrets... Here is why (order non-specific): - Room was ok enough, not super clean but livable. - Beats from music, played in bar, could be clearly...

Huge room (ask for room 3!) with an enormous, very comfy bed, separate seating area, fireplace and views onto the main street. Bathroom was spacious & had a great shower. Rate included a full English, which was very good value and delicious! No issues with coldness in our room as others have experienced - all in all a great one...

Booked this hotel last minute to spend New Years Eve. The room was basic but comfortable, the staff are so friendly and helpful, the bar is tastefully decorated and the breakfast was excellent. The hotel is full of character and a perfect location

We visited for a birthday lunch on a Sunday. There were around 16 of us and we had pre-ordered our food to make things easier. The Sunday menu is limited and my daughter did not like any of the choices but we called in advance and they allowed her to have a burger which she very much enjoyed. I had...

My partner and I stayed here for a last minute weekend break. Parking here was s little tricky due to roads being closed off for the market and the only access to the back of the hotel ,was round the houses on the town centre ring road. Spaces were limited as it was shared with local residence. On booking in...

We stumbled across this place whilst looking for a pub for Sunday lunch. It is beautifully decorated and the ambience is very relaxed considering it's very classy interior. Mixture of people but not overtly busy. We had a lovely booth by the window- just walked in, no booking. Staff were very friendly, attentive and accommodating. Service was quick and the...

The pub is an old building and the bedroom and bathroom were created with a good use of space; very comfortable, quiet and a coffee machine in the room. The pub is part of a gin club and had real ales. Breakfast superb. Location right in the centre of Sudbury makes it good for a look round the town and...
