Food fit for the occasion

We had a meal at the Black Boy on a week night and although the restaurant was quiet and perhaps
lacking real atmosphere, the food and drink really made the occasion. This place is a traditional pub, with that
country feel, but with a modern dining area. If you visit/drive around here in the summer I'd recommend you stop off for a quick bite or drink and make use of the benches out the front.

400 years old, unpretentious, great food

Disclosure: my cousin is the new general manager so maybe I am little biased. Nevertheless I think you will find what I say to be true.

I met with some family for dinner at the Black Boy Inn. It's off the beaten track but if you are in the area I think it would be worth a visit because the surroundings are lovely and the food is excellent.

It was a nice evening when I arrived and we were able to sit in the beer garden which is tree lined and pleasant although a little too integrated with the car park (this is going to change).

The building is 400 years old and has been recently restored. They've managed to keep the charm while gaining a lot of the benefits of a modern building (the toilet was immaculate!)

I had the butternut squash risotto with parmesan and basil oil and it was delicious; The liver and bacon, sausage and mash, and wild garlic, leek and blue cheese risotto also got the thumbs up (no problem having that last one, which is a starter, as a main). I didn't have a start but those who did seemed to enjoy them.

I abandoned my diet in favour of pudding: white chocolate and croissant bread and butter pudding with vanilla anglais and praline ice cream. Fabulous. The trio of chocolate was another popular choice.

Despite the great food it's not a pretentious "gastro pub". It's a traditional pub, with a dining area, that happens to serve great food.

Because I was driving I just had a glass of wine with dinner, I've no idea if the beer is any good.

But I'd recommend finding out for yourself.
