The room was quiet and clean, very comfortable and decently sized. The bathroom was well decorated and the bath and shower were great. The bathroom has underfloor heating. The staff were friendly and welcoming, the serving staff in the restaurant particularly were brilliant. The food was magnificent, beautifully cooked and decent portions. I would definitely stay again.

Met friends for lunch here. For the price it was good value for money a good choice for a group booking, something for everyone. £15 per head including drinks. There are plenty of tables, a lot larger than it looks from the outside, whilst still maintaining a cosy atmosphere. The staff are very helpful. There was a carvery on offer,... More

We spent a very happy evening here. The fixed price menu had plenty of choice and was excellent value (£20). Good choice of wine, very friendly and efficient staff, light and airy restaurant and comfy chairs to retire to for coffee (included in the price). Only half an hour's drive from home and would definitely go again.

We stayed here for 2 nights on a value break. Mainly used by business men, accomodation was basic and walls were very thin so next doors tv's and snoring could be heard through the night. Very helpful staff however who tried to ensure it did not happen again. Food was not very memorable, very rich and far too larger portions.... More

Had a very pleasant dinner with friends. We chose the fixed menu at £20 per head and were amazed by the food. Perfect sized helpings with interesting choice for each course. Excellent value for money! All in all a wonderful find for eating out. Only criticism was the soft meringue was a little crunchy but that's all.

We organised a celebratory lunch for three couples at The Boars Head, picking the hotel because it was equidistant between our widespread locations and had good reviews. It was a most successful arrangement - drinks (and exchange of presents) in the lounge, a very attractively-set table in the restaurant and back to the lounge for coffee. The menu was interesting,...

We called in for Sunday Lunch May bank holiday. The restaurant and bar were busy but were well staffed so we were quickly found a table. The menu was comprehensive and the carvery offered a good range of meats and vegetables. The service was very good and the food was well presented and generous portions. Our meals were delicious and... More

We booked the Boars Head for a little anniversary getaway and we're glad we did. The only downside was that the room at night was quite noisy with sounds from neighbouring rooms (TV, people walking around) being heard very clearly, especially the creaking floorboards. My wife, who is a light sleeper, didn't get the best night's sleep. Overall though, the... More

Just spent a long weekend at Boars Head and had a really enjoyable time. We have been here twice before and the food and service were as good as we remembered. We had the special weekend offer which was excellent value as the evening meal had good main meal choices, which changed every day, along with a good number of... More
