The Black Boy  

This pub is in a really nice place, on a hill connecting the "high" and "low" towns. Its right in the middle of a residential area, and has a really good "house" feel, but wheelchair users might have some trouble due to how small it is. There are two rooms around one bar, and also a back yard with great views of the river Severn.

There is always a warm welcome here. A Jazz festival venue (alternate Sundays) and other live music every first Friday of the month, a clue to the warmth of this great pub, also including a real fire when it gets cold.

They serve one regular brewed for and named after this pub, plus five guest ales form the likes of Salopian and Three Tuns. Real cider is also available here.

No food here I'm afraid but the warmth of the fire and clientele, and the general good quality of the beer on offer makes up for it.

For the summer there is a garden with great views and a real fire for winter.

The pub is family friendly and dogs are also welcome here.

The smoking area is at the rear of the pub.

The worst is that you have to walk up the hill again if you live in High town.



The clientele is nice, never any rowdiness, average age 40 I suppose, but popular with young, old, and lager drinkers alike.
