Arrived here for a drink and a meal. The bar area wasn't in keeping with rest of hotel and was dark with poor decor. 2 foreign servers were in duty. We ordered drinks and was told the drinks would be added to our meal bill . We sat at table with menus - limited choice - all French based. We... More

Stayed at Kingfisher Caravan Park (excellent place to stay) and looked around for somewhere to eat where dogs are welcome - Guy Fawkes and Malt Shovel pubs had the vapours when we mentioned dogs. However, the Boars Head were really welcoming - dogs welcome in the garden or inside the bistro. The staff were superb, really friendly with great service... More

Puzzled???, but pleased!! Many thanks for posting such a positive review, but I am puzzled why we only scored only 2 out of five....Having said that, the most important bit is that you enjoyed what you had and have recommended us for other dog owners. Many thanks again for the kind words, and we look forward to welcoming you back... More

Stayed with 7 other cyclists, using it as a base to watch some of the tour de France. No complaints, food was great, we ate in both the restaurant and bar. Staff were particularly good, on what was an extremely busy weekend.

What a record breaking weekend!!! The Tour de France was the most brilliant celebration of cycling that we have ever seen. With lots more cycling events going on in Yorkshire, like The Tour of Yorkshire for the next three years, it looks like our cycling breaks will be rather popular. Next time you are planning a cycling break , we... More

This was the second time we've stayed here. Room excellent, we stayed in Keepers Lodge, a very well appointed room near the beer garden. We thought that it would be noisy, but were pleasantly surprised. Evening meal was superb, we had three courses instead of our usual two, the Theakstons Old Peculiar very fresh, so had a couple. Breakfast as... More

Fantastic review!!! Many thanks for the positive comments. I can only apologise for the rather unfortunate double failure of the heating boilers. They were ,however, back up and running in about 2 hrs, so a very quick result for such a large challenge. The engineers did their best and I know that one or two rooms got a little surprise... More

Thanks for taking the time to post a review.

I arrived later than I had intended at the Boars Head on the Thursday evening before my Sister's Wedding on the Friday because of traffic around the Harrogate and the show, though it was only around 8.30 pm. When I checked-in I asked for a table to be booked in the restaurant whilst I went to my room to refresh... More

Excellent location and friendly staff. The room we had was ok but it needed some updating. we had a shower curtain with brown stains at the bottom and some old white bathroom sealant still on the bath presumably from an old glass screen. This gave a dated atmosphere. If there was air conditioning in the room i could not find... More

With friends visiting the area for the Tour de France we wanted somewhere convenient to meet for lunch. Having eaten here two or three times before we immediately thought of The Boar's Head.
