Quinno _ left this review about The Black Boy

This eclectic place trundles on much as it ever has done. My visit found Saxon Brewery Alfred (barrel-end), Itchin Valley Russian Winter (good), some old tosh from Cotleigh, Flowerpots Pale and Hop Back Summer Lightning. Always a must-visit in the city.

July 2011
An eccentric freehouse with a cosy atmosphere, sporting a good selection of five interesting ales on my last visit (Summer Lightning, Andwell King John, Dark Star Saison, Cheriton Flowerpots and Ringwood Best), with a real cider too if I remember right. All the samples came out well. The teenage female barmaids were, well, teenage in their approach and the piped music rather suited their tastes, unfortunately. As mentioned extensively elsewhere, there are a number of different rooms to explore with more stuffed animals than Ray Mears' shed, more tat than David Dickenson’s attic and more worn rugs than Terry Wogan's dressing room. No fruit machines or TVs to annoy you either. Board games and table football available. The owner also operates a restaurant (Black Rat) and wine bar (Black Bottle). Ten to fifteen minutes’ walk along the river Itchin from the centre of town and well-worth it. One of Winchester’s best places and a well-kept secret from the tourists. Rated 9

A fantastic pub full of nooks an cranny's with a strange collection of curios scattered throughout the pubs several rambling rooms. Hopback Citra was my choice of beer and was perfectly good. As said before a destination pub in Winchester.
