user reviews of the Black Boy, Oving

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

The Black Boy feels like a really remote place. Yet it is not too far off the beaten track. Situated in a small farming village, you can certainly smell the countryside! But the views across the fields are nice. The pub itself has an attractive exterior. The interior has an atmospheric bar area and a dining area round the corner. The owner appears to be Italian and food is clearly popular here. 3 ales were served - XT4 & 25 & Chiltern Beechwood Bitter. There was no real cider. I tried the XT25, which was a Christmas ale and reasonably good. Worth a visit.

Visited on a Sunday @ 8pm to be told we close at 6pm - WTF?

Nice looking place but gets a 1/10 for ridiculous opening hours and petulant and unrepentent staff.

A terrific location and a superb old building, give you a good feeling about this place. The rear garden is spectacular - well kept with excellent views over the Vale.

Really friendly staff and local ale from Vale Brewery. Food good, but beware Monday night when the menu is quite limited.

On the downside, my pint of Vale Best was cloudy, had no condition and (shock horror) I didn't even finish it! I'm sure their beer can't be that bad all the time though.

We worth a visit on balance

Food orientated pub but with space for drinkers - about 3 standard ales & a cider on tap. Good traditional pub on a hill with lovely views of the surrounding countryside.
