Live locally & thought we'd have a change & add to our repertoire of eateries.. Food was 'okay' but certainly not anything fantastic and most definitely overpriced. Not somewhere you'd go rushing back to. Portions are insufficient to call a 'complete meal' - tiny quantities of vegetables & potatoes with meals listed as 'served complete'. 'Crackling' on roast suckling pig... More

Best ever in the the Lakes - If you are looking for a secluded location, surrounded by woodland, not far from Windermere, this is the place for you. The building has a charming character, the staff will bend over backwords to help, the chefs are top nothch!

My son and daughter in law got married on 1 May 2015 at The Wild Boar. They wanted a friendly relaxed wedding, no pressure to do speeches, everyone to enjoy the beautiful venue and excellent food with friendly and welcoming staff. They got it all. Most guests arrived on Thursday afternoon/evening and because the guests booked all the rooms, we... More

Was attending a wedding, and although I have been to the Lake district any times, I had never been here. Almost all rooms booked out for the wedding, and mine had been organised by the wedding party, maybe because of this I didn't get the best of rooms, not the hotels fault, It was room 35 up at the back...

The meal and reception were planned to perfection. Very high quality food and service. Bedrooms very comfortable, tastefully decorated and very clean. Would recommend to anyone and plan to return to stay and dine again.

We regularly book in the restaurant here and as a surprise for my Partner's birthday I booked us in for our first overnight stay. I booked quite last minute and because of this all the Luxury rooms were booked. I opted for a Classic double but upon arriving I learned that there were actually three room tiers, Classic, Feature, and... More

Stopped off for a night including micro brewery beer and a smoke house meal. Room was lovely. The bar here is excellent and we sat next to the open fire, enjoying a beer bat, brewed on site. Dinner was nice and and the smoked produce interesting. Recommended for a short break in the Lakes...
