The Black Boy, Bury St Edmunds
a lovely locals pub. friendly and helpful landlord, lovely pub dog Roxy, clean and cosy rooms. Reasonably quiet despite being above a pub, very convenient for access to the Athenaeum where we were trading as part of the Christmas Market. Hope to stay there again next year (once Bury council have confirmed 2019 Christmas market dates)

Lovely stay once again.
Lovely stay at The Black Boy once more. The proprietor was forced to cancel breakfast on on the Saturday due to family reasons but I was informed and offered compensation so all good. Small single room, clean and perfect for my stay. The pub is perfect for the town centre.

You get what you pay for. Beds were comfy, room was clean but dated. Service was weird, not overly friendly and owners arguing.
