About the Black Boy

Chris Bentham and Abigail Rose have been catering for over 15 years and have had the honour of working with such mentors as Raymond Blanc (Chris Bentham, 9 years, Abigail Rose, 4 years) and Paul Heathcote (Abigail Rose 3 years). 

With The Black Boy, they're taking the fine dining concept and turning it on it's head: providing well-priced home-made food with Artisan bread and traditional pub fayre (even home-made pork scratchings!). 

Something a little bit extra...

With their Kids Kitchen and weekly jazz/blues night, they're looking to provide that little bit more so that whether we're your destination venue, or your local, you'll find something to please you.

We hope to see you soon.


We are now offering four deluxe Kingsize bedrooms, one deluxe Double room, all with powers showers.  It's a venue where you can relax and be assured we'll exceed your expectations. All the furniture for our rooms has been commissioned and made by British crafts-people, making your experience truly unique. There is a design page on our home web site, www.theblackboy.uk.com, where you can find links, should you fall in love with a particular piece and want to purchase for yourself.

Breakfast is, of course, included. Supper reservations are recommended as we are a busy place! Parking is available, but please highlight this in your reservation request. Everything is homemade, so should you have any dietary requests, be assured we will do our best to cater for you. We, unfortunately, do not have travel cots or extra beds, so it would be difficult for a young child to stay at our premises. However, we can work with you, , to try and find a solution.
