About 200 years old, The Black Boy took its name from the image on the landowner’s coat of arms when it was built. It’s set in beautiful countryside and a magnet for walkers; dogs, though, must be kept outside. The bar hosts a varied selection of beers, some with very low ale miles such as Langton’s Inclined Plane (named after the Foxton boat lift), and Grainstore’s Ten Fifty from Rutland. Look to the chalkboard for the week’s home-cooked dishes. Typical of these are goats’ cheese and red onion tart; lamb's liver with bacon, mash and onion gravy; and sticky toffee pudding.
