In 1835 Daniel Winterton was the victualler at the Black Boy, until March when 1870 Charles Oliver Fox took over the licence. In August 1912 it was leased to Brunt Bucknall, who later bought it. By 1926 the pub went to Bass, who then rebuilt it to its present form. In the 1970's it was owned by Mitchells & Butlers, It appears to have been a free house for a while in the early 1980's, before being taken over by Bass again in the late 80's. It was then owned by Punch Taverns in the 2000's, before closing down early 2012. There are currently plans to keep the frontage, but build a horrible block of yet more student flats behind it :(

Annoyingly the place seems to be being used for storage, which makes it difficult to get decent pics of its not too bad interior. Visited with jacquesj, MD, Mr Sam, jameswildcooper, and Mr Carrot.
