The Black Boy
Pubs and Bars with Restaurants
The Black Boy public house has been independently owned by the Rigby family since 1993. Only minutes from the NEC and the village of Knowle, its great location next to the Grand Union Canal offers diners a unique opportunity to relax in the expansive garden and admire canal life while enjoying wholesome food.
From the hearty, traditional British menu why not share the baked Camembert to start before moving on to freshly caught and daily delivered catch of the day. Steaks are also a popular option here. Reasonably priced cuts of sirloin, fillet and 24oz rump steak are served with a choice of potatoes and mushrooms, onion rings, grilled tomato and peas. There is also a varied gluten-free menu and an enticing range of desserts such as four-layer chocolate fudge cake and gluten-free cheesecake.
Homemade main courses start at just £8.45, making the Black Boy a pocket-friendly option. They have the capacity to cater for large groups, and its secure outdoor play area and private mooring attract families, canal folk, cyclists and walkers alike, making it an ideal place to while away an afternoon or two.
