Admittedly, this hotel is a little quirky with the boar-named rooms, the boar decor, the boar heads on the walls and the specialty boar beers on tap, but it is a delight. The rooms was lovely with extremely comfortable beds. The bar is cute with attentive and friendly staff. But, the restaurant is the most amazing part of the experience.... More

Stayed here on a deal 2 nights in a feature room and dinner on the first night included. Well worth it and would go again. The building is old and so it is full of character.

We can safely say The Wild Boar's Sunday lunch is the best we've had, by far (and we've tried... More

We stayed here for one night as part of a 2 night mini break in the area. The welcome was friendly. The room was very nice...clean, comfortable and had everything you needed. We ate in the restaurant and the food was good, although the fish dish we had wasn't exceptional. A minor quibble but I think I was expecting more.... More
