Welcome to The Black Boy Inn

Address: Northgate Street, Stryd Pedwar A Chwech, Snowdonia, Caernarfon, LL55 1RW

Hotel Description

The Black Boy is a 16th-century inn within Caernarfon's historic town walls. It has good real ales, hearty meals, and is an easy walk from the town centre and 13th-century castle. The Black Boy Inn dates back to 1522 and is one of the oldest inns in North Wales. Some of its walls are 1.2 to 1.5 metres thick. The wood panelling, creaking floorboards, low ceilings, narrow staircases and thick wooden beams create a cosy atmosphere. Black Jack's is a separate part of the inn and is located in a courtyard to the rear. It provides modern accommodation including junior suites with kitchenettes. Caernarfon is a market town with an open-air market every Saturday (Mondays also in summer).

The clubs nickname "The Canaries" dates back to the yellow and green colours worn in Victorian times. In 1876, an athletics club was formed in Caernarfon to take part in football and cricket, although as early as 1787 Old Karnarvon reported that "the Sunday amusements of the people were football, cockfighting and other similar games". The Carnarvon Athletic Club, as it was known, played the first match on 18th November 1876 against the North Wales Training College the formation was an adventurous 1-2-8 and surprisingly finished a draw. Carnarvon Athletics second match was against Bangor, Athletic lost 1-0 and buoyed by this success the Bangor club were officially formed two days later.
