Welcome to The Restoration

Located just off the High Street in Sevenoaks town centre, The Restoration is perfectly placed for a bite to eat or a drink while shopping.

Dating back to 1616, our pub boasts a stylish, contemporary look, while retaining its traditional feel. Our large al fresco seating area is also a popular spot for watching the world go by.

We are renowned for our delicious menu, all cooked to order using local ingredients wherever possible. 

Brunch is available all day Monday to Saturday, offering on-trend dishes such as Smashed Avocado Toast and Baked Spicy Beans and Eggs.

The coffee station serves up all your favourite speciality hot drinks, and of course we serve a range of international lagers and local real ales along with a carefully selected wine list and modern and traditional spirits.

We are closed on Sundays but feel free to enquire about using the entire venue free of charge for your function – we have a great range of buffet options to suit every occasion.

And if you enjoy live music, come and join us on the first Tuesday of every month when a local group will be performing.

The Black Boy, Sevenoaks

Shepherd Neame is committed to equality and diversity in every area of its business, and strives to create inclusive, welcoming pub environments for all customers to enjoy.

After much deliberation, we have decided to seek consent from relevant authorities to change the name and provide new signage for The Black Boy in Sevenoaks. It was not a decision taken lightly, but we recognise that its current name is not potentially welcoming for all customers, and feel that it is the right thing to do.

It will not be the first change of name for the pub, which has been called Evergreens and Bank Street Brasserie in previous years.

One of the most historic pubs in Sevenoaks, The Black Boy dates back to 1616. Some suggest the pub was named after John Morockoe, who worked at nearby Knole country house during the reign of James I. There are many Black Boy pubs around the country, however, and a number of theories for the choice of name. Some suggest it could be connected to coal mining or chimney sweeps. It could also refer to the nickname given to King Charles II due to his dark-hued skin and exile during Cromwell’s reign. It is believed that a number of pubs changed their name to The Black Boy to show their allegiance.

In order to reflect the pub’s long history, we have chosen to focus on its potential connection with King Charles II, and are therefore proposing to rename it The Restoration.
Every other element of the pub’s popular offer will remain the same.
