The Black Boys Hotel is an imposing Grade II listed building in the centre of the historic market town of Aylsham. It is a popular pub, bar and restaurant and offers superb B&B accommodation in eight en suite guest bedrooms. The restaurant and bar areas of The Black Boys have been completely refurbished but stylised to preserve a 17th century feel with a modern ambience. To the rear of the pub we have a covered and heated outdoor area for drinking and dining – complete with its very own bar.

Our menus cater for both traditional and more imaginative tastes, using local produce wherever possible. On Sundays we offer a traditional roast alongside a wide selection of other dishes.

We are a dog-friendly pub and welcome well-behaved dogs on leads in the bar or garden, but they are not permitted in the restaurant. Dogs are also welcome in some of our guest bedrooms. Please mention when booking if you are bringing a dog so that an appropriate table or room may be allocated.

If dining in the bar with your dog we ask that owners be sensitive to other guests. If a dog needs food or water please take them outside where water bowls are provided.

Pub open every day from 8.30am. Breakfast served 8.30am-10.30am every day (booking essential). Main menu served Mon-Thurs 12.00pm-8.30pm, Fri & Sat 12.00pm-9.30pm, Sun 12.00pm-8.00pm.

Booking is strongly advised to avoid disappointment.

As per all listings on Dog Friendly Norfolk, we accept well behaved dogs.

    Excellent food, fantastic service, good price. We booked a table for 10 very last minute on a Saturday and they managed to squeeze us in provided we could give the table back by a set time. Food was excellent quality and very good portions. Very accommodating to allergies and plenty of drinks available. We wanted deserts but would have overran past the time they needed the table back, however they were very helpful and said they could push it back a bit more to give us time to eat if we wanted. Overall, excellent food and service.

    Fantastic place that's always busy. Very clean and tidy up market venue. Food is outstanding more gourmet and posh vs typical pub food. Best food I have had for some time. Service is outstanding, polite and friendly and your made to feel welcome the second you enter. Would highly recommend 👌

    Amazing food across this chain’s restaurants and absolutely massive portions! I’m yet to see anyone complete 3 courses here, so I’d say that’s great value for money. Parking is adequate as Aylsham village centre feels a little crowded so it’s good they have their own car park, even though it is little; I’d allow a few minutes extra before your arrival to park just in case. Makes me hungry and wanting an excuse to visit again just writing this!!

    So, we stopped in on a family recommendation. The fish and chips are probably the best I’ve had. My wife had the baked crab thermidor and raved over it and the salad. They serve full bottles of wine, a full bar, and soft drinks. The friendly and helpful staff can be a little slow with service, but they make up for it with a smile and cheer.

    Staff were very friendly and polite. Service and quality of the evening and breakfast meals again very good. Only small issue, finding somewhere to park at venue.
