Although the name is certainly politically incorrect in modern terms, this historic restaurant and hotel dates back more than 500 years and honors a young black boy who worked here to support his family. The restaurant is exactly what you would expect from medieval times — dark beams, heavy furniture and open fireplaces. The guest rooms offer modern amenities, including a solid Wi-Fi signal, but there’s just enough of the open beams and sharply slanted ceilings to remind you that you’re light years away from a typical chain hotel. Other amenities include free breakfast, free parking, a children’s menu, high chairs and a playground outside.

Had lunch here 2 days running. Staff were friendly and welcoming and the food delicious. Portions were on the large side and would recommend sharing the hot beef sandwiche with scrumptious chips. Deserts were just as big and delicious. Definitely worth a visit.
Warm and welcoming atmosphere with friendly staff. Food was delicious as usual with good sized portions. It's easy to see why it's so popular with locals, there were many workers there enjoying their lunch breaks. Can definitely recommend!
