The Black Boy Inn has been a landmark in Reading for over 500 years. The pub boasts an important piece of British history; it was built around an ancient wisteria tree which is located to the rear of the pub and the tree is believed to be the oldest wisteria in the country. The pub has an excellent outside seating space for drinking and al fresco dining.
