“Superb”
Reviewed March 28, 2013

My husband and I embarked upon this superb historic market town restaurant by pure coincidence and were overwhelmed by the outstanding food and exquisite customer service.

The restaurant itself has a very warm and welcoming feeling which oozes history. We were cared for by a lovely young lady, possibly the manager who was extremely attentive and made our visit ever more delightful. The food was second to none, although portions are considerably large so make sure you visit on a deflated stomach.

Highly recommended and well worth a visit.

“Promise realised”
Reviewed March 18, 2013

By coincidence we passed through Aylsham one lunchtime a couple of weeks after a family lunch there. We were visiting a world-famous Fine Art Auction House in the town and decided to see if the quality at The Black Boys, so highly enjoyed during our earlier visit,.was maintained. It was just as well that intuition ensured that we would be more than delighted again. This time we had not booked, but we arrived as a couple and were shown to one of the last tables available in the Restaurant. The welcome, service and cooking, as experienced during our first visit, was agreeblay pleasant and well maintained, and clearly normal routine for this establishment. We had a delightful lunch and have no hesitation at all in recommending repeat visits.

“Nice food”
Reviewed March 14, 2013 via mobile

Food nice though slightly overpriced and over rated. My table was on the edge if the main tables so felt a bit neither here nor there inbetween the pub area and walkway. Otherwise worth a visit

“Large portions”
Reviewed March 5, 2013

Visited for a Sunday lunch, when we arrived we had a very friendly greeting and were shown to our table straight away. I decided against a starter but my other half had chicken terrine with brioche it was well presented and tasted lovely but the portion was very large glad I decided to save myself for my Sunday roast! The roasts were served with a good selection of vegetables but beware make sure your hungry as portions are very large! I must say the service was very efficient staff couldn't do enough to help and it was a pleasant experience!
