Everything about our stay in this hotel was excellent. Lovely staff, warm welcome. Recently refurbished to a very high standard downstairs in the bar/restaurant area. The Manager Ema could not do enough for us. Our room was large and king size bed, white crispy linen, and a nice alcove to view the high street and sit relax and people watch.... More

I have to say the re-furb is fantastic and extremely inviting. I went to The Black Boy back in March and was extremely disappointed that they only had one vegetarian dish on the menu, spoke with the owner who said the menu would be changing and more dishes would be added, I went on to explain how many vegetarians are...

We were hungry and just as well as the portions are huge. We had lunch on the Sunday of the food fair and were fortunate to get a table. We both opted for lambs liver with plenty of bacon, onion and rich sauce with potatoes and vegetables, absolutely delicious. The desserts were also excellent. Service spot on even though they...

Ate here 2 weeks ago with a friend. Felt quite comfortable going in on my own and waiting for my friend. Service was quick and friendly. Food was not fussy and good. It has recently been decorated and had a great feel about it. Will definitely to again.

We ate here last Saturday; the manager and staff went out of their way to be helpful, telling us discreetly that a large party also in the dining room were still dithering over their choice of food an hour after arrival, and that they would take our orders first otherwise we might have a long wait..
