Friendly welcome and excellent service. The Menu was perfect - not too extensive but covered al the bases and left us spoilt for choice. We would highly recommend a visit
Although once a pub the Black Boy is now a restaurant and a very good one at that. We went on a Tuesday night and every table was taken, always a good sign. Not being local we thought it expensive but it was certainly very good. They have a varied range of hand-pulled beers which was well received!
We popped in here for a quick business dinner. The little bar is average with foul / uncomfortable chairs that are more from a skip outside IKEA than gastro pub in Old Headington but apart from that I loved it. The food was good, service competent - if gushing from one server - but the Irish server was super. Happy... 更多
We returned to the Black Boy for a family lunch and then again for an evening meal. They really have improved the food here, which was aways good, to excellent. The monkfish goujons are terrific and you can choose hand cut or fries, so sensible. I really must keep going back.
Ate here with a friend early on a Thursday evening. The pub was empty when we arrived so we enjoyed a couple of beers at the bar ordered our food and then sat down to eat. The menu is reasonably varied but a little on the pricey side; £7 for a starter is pushing it in my book. I ordered... 更多
I enjoyed a meal here with a friend. They actually brought me the wrong dish but immediately offered to change it and to give us free dessert. I stuck with what they brought and wasn't disappointed! I would happily return.
Four of us went to celebrate a 60th birthday, rather belatedly. It was a splendid meal, very well served. (Our waiter was new to the job, but he was well supported by his colleagues and it was almost seamless!) We were all very happy with our choices except one dessert which did not meet expectations. (The sticky toffee pudding) We... 更多
Visited on a weekday evening. Service very good and an excellent selection on the menu including lots of seafood. Most starters over £7 which is a little steep considering the food is not tip top. I had risotto with rubbery Parmesan on top. My main of herb crusted cod was again average. A bit soggy and and no real crunch... 更多
This is our first visit to this fine establishment. Wasn't sure what to expect but really glad we tried it. It was quite early in the evening and we were the only ones dining which in some places has been a bit of a problem with hovering staff who have little to do. Not so here, we were shown to... 更多
We were at the hotel in Headington with children and didn't want to go back to Oxford centre. The hotel staff advised us to go the Black Boy which is a gastro pub. The menu has a large choice of meals. We discovered very nice cooking, tastefull. Quality of the food is really higher than any good pub and deserves... 更多
A night out during the week. Early dinner with an old friend,almost like at home. Good wine a Malbec from Argentine. Scallops with an excellent cauliflower sauce, delicious Allumi, and coconut and citrus dessert. All extremely well presented. Service very professional with a relaxed attitude. I will definetly be back!!!
