This pub has to be seen to be believed. If you like a wacky, idiosyncratic pub with great beer, good wine, generously portioned well-cooked basic food, lots of locals and an open fire - with an eccentric decoration and a very individual atmosphere, this is it. Everywhere you look there is something amazing, incongruous or bizarre. Tucked away on Wharf Hill, off Chesil Street in Winchester, The Black Boy is still faithful to its origins. Although recognised in most of the well known beer and pub guides, it is still a traditional back-street boozer.
The pub has 5 locally brewed real ales and a small selection of good
French wines. Good 'pub grub' is available from Tuesday evenings
through to Sunday lunch. During the winter months roasts are
served on Sundays with lighter lunches being offered during the
summer. W-Fi is available.
The postcode is SO23 9NP and can be reached by a short walk from the high street along the river Itchen and then bearing left up the hill.
