The Black Boy

Situated just minutes from the M4, The Black Boy in Shinfield makes an ideal meeting place. We serve delicious food all day, everyday! With our extensive menus, including Vegan and Gin, and a wide choice of wines from around the world, you will not leave disappointed!  We do a fabulous Sunday Roast from 12 noon until 5pm. We are family friendly too, with a funky kids’ menu and colouring competition with monthly prizes.

We have a large patio area, with fire-pit, a stunning outdoor seating area and three gorgeous outdoor dining huts which is the perfect spot for alfresco dining all summer. In the summer months, our fully stocked outdoor bar is open for drinks, food, snacks and ice lollies.

During the winter months we have our fabulous outdoor tent erected over the garden transforming our beautiful pub garden into a sparkly haven, making this a lovely spot to enjoy a cocktail or two before you dine.

We’re the perfect place, all year round!

General Manager, The Black Boy
