The Black Boy

Situated just minutes from the M4, The Black Boy in Shinfield makes an ideal meeting place. We pride ourselves on delivering fantastic food with great friendly service and are working hard during these unusual times to make your visit a happy, comfortable and safe experience. In line with social distancing measures and new guidelines we have made a few changes; see our Frequently Asked Questions!

With our delicious menu, including Vegan choices, 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 kids’ menu; something for everyone!

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 and food.

We’re the perfect place all year round!
