We had visited The Black Boy a few years ago when visiting Caernarfon and it was so good that we had to visit again! The food was served quickly, it was hot and there was loads of it! The choice was brilliant too.

Essen war nur aufgewärmt. Viel zu schnell zu vorbereiten. Teller würde direkt direkt von unter die nase weggeschnappt wann mann noch die letzte bissen kaute. Getränke muste mann ständig verteidigen sonst wann die 3/4 öeer sind würden die auch schon weggeräumt. Vielleicht bin ich etwas altmodisch, aber ein hanze satz statt nur "Enjoy" die mnn in eine schnellrestauant erwarten könnte währe gut. So wie" Enjoy your meal sir"

I booked online & was fully aware of being seated in the coach house. However... I would much of preferred to of been seated in the front part of the pub ,which I got a glimpse of when we arrived, more atmospheric . Food & plates nice and hot 👍. I personally wasn’t a fan of the chips ( steak meal) too sweet . The steak was well done as I asked 👌tasty & tender .

Myself and my wife booked a 6.30pm Sunday table and just as well because it was packed. This pub/restaurant is a gem. From the minute we turned up to the time we left the staff were very friendly and attentive without being pushy. We started with a shared fish cake and it was just as well because it was followed by the biggest and tastiest steak & ale pie I’ve ever had with delicious triple cooked chips veg and a gravy to die for. My wife opted for an equally fantastic scampi dish. We finished off with a shared cheesecake and just about managed it. So good we went back the following evening and had an equally great experience with different menu choices. If that isn’t good enough we back for a third visit to try another meal from the large menu options. Were we Disappointed? No chance, another fab meal with great service which proves to me that there are very high standards at this place. Don’t miss this place if you visit Caernarfon but book or take a high risk of being disappointed.

We ate in the restaurant twice during our three night stay in Caernarfon. All four of us agree that the meals, the service and general ambience of the Black Boy Inn were second to none. Credit to all members of staff, but a special mention to Sian, who runs the restaurant extremely efficiently and with great humour!

Went to the Black Boy for the first time to celebrate a big Birthday. Service and atmosphere were excellent but all 5 of our meals were a huge disappointment. It spoiled the day as the place had been highly recommended to us and we expected better quality. Would not go back again and would not recommend to others.

Service was a bit hit and miss. While the coffee we ordered on arrival arrived fairly quickly, the other drinks took an age to arrive. Also, one of the starters we ordered never arrived. The missing starter did not appear on the bill, so no fuss was made. Bit disappointing as we had been very pleased with everything on our previous visit, and we had undertaken a 180 mile round trip for our Sunday lunch.
