Black Boy, Sevenoaks

Welcome to the Black Boy pub in Sevenoaks, Kent.

An historic high-street pub in Sevenoaks, the Black Boy has been serving up fine fare for four centuries.


Welcome to the Black Boy

Old meets new at the Black Boy pub in Sevenoaks, where 17th century charm and contemporary style combine to stunning effect. An historic hostelry in the heart of the town, it’s the perfect place to enjoy authentic Kentish ales, an exceptional collection of wines and delicious fresh pub food.

Built in 1616, the Black Boy is a history hunter’s dream, and with the pub close to Knole House (a local National Trust gem), it’s the ideal stop-off for a refreshing pint and a bite to eat after a day of exploration.

You can unwind in our cosy interior, with its real fireplaces, wooden floors and comfy sofas, or head outside in the summer to soak up the rays in our courtyard garden. It’s the best spot for alfresco drinking and dining in Sevenoaks - and a real sun-trap after midday.

A Warm Welcome

Inside or out, you’re guaranteed a warm welcome and first-class fare. There’s an impressive wine menu with over 50 to choose from. Cava and Champagne are available by the glass, plus there is a collection of Shepherd Neame’s award-winning ales and lagers waiting for you at the bar.

For diners, meanwhile, there’s a main menu packed with classic British and international dishes at lunchtimes, gourmet bar snacks in the evenings and even a special Brunch menu for the weekend. 

Throw in live acoustic music (on the first Tuesday of every month) and our signature Bloody Mary menu, and it’s not hard to see why the Black Boy has been one of the most popular pubs in Sevenoaks for 400 years!

Here’s to the next four centuries…
