This is a comfortable pub and hotel which offers a good service to customers. We stayed for one night in a room in across the road from the main building. The room and bathroom were in excellent order and had been well prepared for us. There was a separate shower in the bathroom - a welcome and rare extra in... More

I am sorry to read that you didn't enjoy your stay with us back in August. I am puzzled about what animals you had to fight with at the back door ?.... are you sure that you didn't check into the local safari park by mistake?.... Our Reception Team are normally very quick to offer assistance with luggage and our... More

This was our third stay and we were not disappointed. We have had a different superior room each time and on this occasion we had Thornton in the house across the road. The room was very spacious and comfortably furnished and spotless. It was also very quiet. After enjoying a sherry (complimentary in superior rooms) we had dinner in the... More

After a wonderful, team building day at Ripley Castle we ended the day in the Boars Head, which is only a stones throw from the castle in fact it is practically the same driveway ! We were treated to a well deserved pint in the bar, the staff were excellent and the beer was on very good form. Can't wait... More

In a perfectly-preserved estate village, the Boar's Head is meticulously managed. Impeccable setting and decor: coach-house rooms overlook a pretty picnic garden. The upstairs neighbours seemed a tad oblivious to the noise they made on the stairs early in the morning but it goes with the territory of historical properties. I expect it was an exception. Staff were very attentive... More

Finally got to stay having passed by several times. Welcome was exceptional - worth more than 5 stars. Overall the standard of the service in the hotel and bistro was the outstanding feature. Free access to the castle grounds which were impressive and warrant a return visit. Nearly all pros. Cleanliness, facilities etc etc. Food in the Bistro was very... More
