One of Oxfords hidden gems

The Black Boy Is A Delightful Modern Day Inn

Conveniently situated in quaint Old Headington Village, a mere stones throw from the hustle, bustle & shops of London Road Headington.

Once inside, you will receive a warm welcome from Simon and Samantha Stonehouse, as well as Sarah, our general manager. During the winter, the pub is heated by two roaring fires. A restaurant and a cosy snug compliments the spacious bar. There is a country-style decor that is comfortable, stylish, and welcoming.

Upstairs five en-suite bedrooms have been remodelled to provide beautiful accommodation, fully equipped for the modern day traveller. Outside, car parking is available with a delightful and spacious enclosed garden, a little oasis away from the hustle and bustle of the City.
