Restaurant Booking

Our online ordering web link is now live.


Dining times at the Inn. Tables are available on a walk-in basis only, we no longer accept  table bookings 

  • Sunday to Thursday: Noon until 9.00 p.m.
  • Friday and Saturday. Noon until 9.30 p.m.

Remember, we are a very busy Inn and not a hotel. therefore, open to the public and it can become very busy the later the evening goes.

A waiting list for tables is run from the door. We run most of the Inn as a pub with meals.

We do not allow dogs into any inside areas of the Inn.
We neither book any tables in bars or outside areas.

Email Confirmation:   Online reservations will only be valid when you receive a confirmation from reception@black-boy-inn.com. Please check your details carefully including the date of arrival, booking times etc. We cannot be held responsible for any errors on the part of the booker.

Please note: A credit or debit card is required in order to reserve a restaurant booking. This is required to confirm a booking, no money will be deducted from your bank account unless the booking is a no show. We reserve the right to charge a no show fee of £10 per person which will be debited from your credit or debit card. (Any cancellations are required to be made 24 hours of the reservation date, with the exception of group bookings Christmas bookings which have separate terms)

All other requests to join the waitlist, which is run after the small number of table bookings have been filled.  Must be in person at the Hotel on the day/evening to ensure that we can offer you a table as soon as one becomes available. This system is necessary to ensure fairness to all our patrons but may be subject to change. The traditional restaurant booking system would create a waiting list which would require up to eight weeks’ notice for a table reservation. We hope that you will appreciate the reasons for this rule as outlined above. If you have a confirmed booking with us in a dining area, please ensure you make yourself known to maître D’ on the door of the dining area, otherwise, we cannot guarantee the table for you. We have a policy of releasing the booked tables for resale on non-arrival of booker, after 10 minutes.

Our policy is run on first come first served. Bookings will always be in the coach house, changes may occur at our discretion during busy times.

Breakfast times

7.00am – 9.30am, (Sunday 7.30am -10.00am) served in the Coach house and subject to numbers in the front dining area for residents. Walk-In breakfast service in the bar areas is also available for non-residents up until 11.30am.

Peak times tend to be the last 30/45 minutes of service.  Please come down early if you need be away early as all our breakfasts are cooked to order and if all our guest come down together there can be a bit of a wait. Sunday morning at 9.00 am is always a peak time to avoid.


Tips are fairly distributed among all the staff.
