Black Boy InnKidderminster Road
The Black Boy Inn was completely refurbished in January 2018. It's near to the River Severn on the opposite bank to the town, not far from the Severn Valley Railway station, and was at one time a 15th century coaching inn named after its Royalist connections in the Civil War. The central bar serves the lounge and the bar which has beams, an open fire in an arched alcove, with a small snug adjoining it which at one time was the access to the former hotel. At the front is a separate room that also doubles as a private function room. Sandwiches, afternoon teas and pub classics are available all day. The restaurant offers a-la-carte dining prepared to order in the kitchen using locally sourced ingredients. It's usually worth booking at weekends to be sure of a table. Four beers are from Wye Valley, Bewdley and St Austell.
