There are 50 covers in the restaurant to the rear of the pub; the front bar is popular with locals and on the town drinking circuit. There is also a large courtyard to the side of the Black Boy, which is well used in the summer. The 7 en-suite bedrooms were fully refurbished a few years ago and are sympathetically decorated and furnished offering an attractive stay away for either the business person during the week or holiday makers/tourists at the weekend.
