Open all day
I agree the name is a little out of date, but the pub is just that, a little piece history from the Victorian past. Two bars, the oval lounge has oak panelling, has an oval bar and a decorative ceiling. The smaller basic bar is less ornate but still of interest.
Beers on at the time were: Bass, Boddingtons and the better placed Highgate Mild. Sometimes there is a guest ale.
The Black Boy is not far from The Vaults or the railway station. Food is served 12-2.30 and is traditional, there is no evening service.
This is where Leicester CAMRA hold their branch meetings
