I visited again in the hope that time had healed this establishment. Sadly, it had not. I experienced the same off-hand service as I did about a year ago. The place looked decidedly grubby and I felt totally unwelcome. How a place like this functions as a business is beyond me!
Landlord is a proper bellend. The owner of the hotel we were staying at warned us that this place was a dump and the landlord was a prick. Quite right he was. Rude and arrogant all for asking for a top up of four short filled pints of lager that cost over 4.50 each. By short filled mean they had a quarter pint of froth in each! Cheeky beggar. Suffice to say we left and went back to The Elva Lodge Hotel for a few drinks before an early-ish night!

This place is actually called the Black Boy (note the name of the lane alongside). It used to have a picture of the eponymous Boy on the sign but now some politically-correct numbwit has changed the sign to show two chimney sweeps. For this reason alone I haven't visited this pub, a decision that seems excellent given the comments that other people have made.

Here was a restaurant pretending to be an olde worlde coaching inn. I was driving on my way to Henley and passed this inn on and by the side of the road. I was looking for a country pub which might serve me a so-called traditional Sunday roast, and this looked like, from the outside, just like the kind of place I was seeking.

How mistaken could I have been.

After parking in the inn's car park I noticed it had an AA 4-star rating. The external building and everything else belied this rating. Immediately on entering I looked for the makes of beer it had on its bar counter. There were none. Instead there was a very large wine rack and encyclopaedias on the wines of the world to peruse. 100% of the other customers in the "pub" were not pubbing, but were clearly customers who had booked restaurant tables. I looked at the menu. It was a 4-star restaurant in its prices.

The "barman" said sit down and we will bring you what you want. I sat down and ordered a beer, Breakspears. It cost me 3-50p. There was no menu or price list for the options for beer that I might want.

I decided not to order Sunday lunch as the prices were not what I was expecting to pay for a pub lunch.

The owner here is an arrogant and rude oaf - the comment on the menu says it all - 'helicopters and vegetarians by appointment'

We pulled up here in one night pre-Xmas, when the snow was coming down thick and fast, and cars were blocking the roads, so we left our car in their car park and popped in to explain the situation.

The owners were very rude, couldn't care less about our plight, or the other stranded folks who came in asking for warm drinks or use of a phone.

So because they made us feel very unwelcome, we walked three miles into Henley where we recieved a much more hospitable recpetion.
