The Black Boy Inn, set deep in the evocative Royal Borough of Caernarfon, has been a welcome retreat for weary travellers for centuries. Built circa 1522, it is one of the oldest inns in North Wales.
Formerly the 'King's Arms' and the 'Fleur de Lys', one landlord bought the other out and created the Black Boy Inn as it is today. Prior to 1828, the 'King's Arms' was known as the 'Black Boy'.
Located in Northgate Street, the Black Boy Inn is one of
the few remaining free houses owned by an independent family business
in the United Kingdom. It has load bearing walls of up to one and
a half metres thick, and four exterior signs each showing a
'black buoy' on one side and a 'black boy' on the other. Do you speak
Welsh? Most people in this pub do, but luckily they also speak
English. Postcode LL55 1RW
Wi-Fi is available.
