The Boars head is a great pub in a charming village. Food and beer are really good and staff are very helpful. It has a quaint charm and it feels very homely. The room I had was fine they are not the most modern but I don't come here for the room. It is an extremely quite village at night... More

We loved our stay at the Boar's Head - everything was perfect - the room was large and clean, we were able to go for a lovely walk in the morning past the Ripley Castle. We can't decide which we were more delighted with: the quality of the breakfast (especially the coffee) or the night porter that provided us with... More

Stayed at the Boars Head for one night b & b and evening meal for my birthday. Arrived a bit early for check in so we got our complimentary tickets for the Castle and spent a good couple of hours in the grounds and guided tour of the castle, very enjoyable and interesting. Checked in about 4pm. Stayed in Keepers... More

Excellent all round experience which was made all the more special by the friendly staff. Initial 'phone contact was a good sign of things to come. We requested a ground floor room and were given a superior room at the same price as the seasonal offer. This entirely met our needs and was clean and well equipped meaning we could... More

We stayed here with our two dogs (who were made very welcome). The staff were exceptionally welcoming and helpful and could not have done more to make our stay enjoyable. Our room was large and well-furnished with a well-appointed bathroom. We ate in the Bistro Bar with our dogs and the food was very good, as was the service. Lovely... More

We booked the Boar's head for an over night stay through availability and not initially through choice. But by the end of our stay my wife and I were very glad we had, our Chinese style room was very comfortable and well ample for our needs, we ate in the brasserie which was very good, all the hotel staff we...

This is a difficult review to write as the food we ate at the boars head was delicious, but the reception we received upon entering the building annoyed me. The receptionist looked at us as though we had two heads. Myself and my partner had just walked up from knaresbrough, we were dressed in walking clothes which I assumed the... More

Many thanks for posting a review. I am pleased to read that you enjoyed the food so much and am staggered that you thought that the receptionist was "snooty", as you will see from many other reviews that the staff get very high praise for their friendly manner. I am sorry that she created that first impression when you arrived,... More

We had a wedding at Ripley castle and wanted something in walking distance. The hotel is quaint and well cared for. Little favours such as chocs on pillow proper coffee and biscuits in the room really make you feel cared for. The service in this place is unreal the staff are really attentive.
