Went here today for a Valentine's Day lunch, we'll my husband and I enjoyed our visit very much, the prices are reasonable so the few people on here that talk it down aren't being reasonable in relation to what they've paid. We've had a lot worse meals elsewhere for the money believe you me. My husband had the Chilli Con... More

We have used the Black Boy in Knowle for Sunday Lunch for many years. It is a lovely old character building next to the canal which is perfect for a walk whilst waiting for your lunch (Leave someone behind to save the table) There is often a long wait but we expect that so it is not a problem as...

We use this pub on a regular basis and have to say we are always greeted nicely by the staff. The food is well prepared and tastes lovely. Never had a bad meal here. I use it more now as I take a young lad I support here . He loves to people watch. Great place for doing this.

My meal consisted of an 8oz rump steak, BBQ pork ribs and a chicken breast and can honestly say I was not disappointed. Has to be the best steak I've had in a while! cooked exactly how I wanted, the meat... More

The Black Boy is a very popular pub to visit. It is always busy as it is such good value. The choice of food on the menu is well balanced and varied. When it arrives it is usually hot, well cooked and plentiful. The choice of drinks is commendable and it is not overpriced compared to some venues in the... More

Arrived at 2 pm for a sandwich and a drink. We chose instead the Beef and Bacon Burgers, and chicken goujons. Meals arrived promptly, after a short wait, entirely acceptable. Food and plates were hot. Burgers juicy, not over cooked. Served with piping hot, well cooked chips, and a crisp salad. My son wolfed down the goujons, crisp on the... More

Eaten here many times, good, family run pub, friendly and efficient staff. The menu is varied with many home cooked items. Open log burning fires , just what you want this time of year.

Having been many years since visiting The Black Boy, a place I remember as friendly, warm and enjoyable place, my recent visit will certainly be my last. On arrival a Sunday afternoon I expected a typical busy scene, it was the complete opposite. The staff were standing around looking anything but happy. We chose our table, made our choices sand...

Arrived at 12.00 to be acknowledged by the friendly bar staff, orders placed at the bar with no fuss with a 30 minute waiting time, nice and cosy pub with a roaring log fire, reasonally priced food and very good standard on offer. big thumbs up to all the staff, well done.
