we stayed here for one night and was a nice hotel very warm and cozy. We had our main meal here too and I thought personally was very overpriced for what you get. Most waiters/waitresses were foreign so didn't have much conversation with them, and I don't think really they wanted to speak as they didn't seem very happy,the service... More

this was our second trip to the Wild Boar and it again lived up to expectation. We were greeted warmly and the level of service was excellent throughout our weekend stay. As a coaching inn, each room is different, but do opt for the feature rooms if available. Food was excellent and why not finish off your eventing sampling their... More

Stayed one night in a standard room. It was small (especially the bathroom) and in need of a lick of paint in places but was comfortable and there was a nice table and seating area. The bed was comfortable and had lovely white sheets and plush towels. The bar was warm and welcoming for a pre-dinner drink. The food was... More

We are regular visitors to The Wild Boar but this time we took my mother in law and her friend for a food and whisky tasting evening with an over night stay. On arrival the staff were very welcoming even to our dog Bracken. After a nice relax in front of the roaring fire we went to our rooms. We... More

We just had 2 nights here to celebrate my wifes birthday. We had a great time, food was top notch especially the steak!! We upgraded our room which was excellent so not sure about the other rooms.

The Wild Boar caters extremely we'll for guest with dogs. We were made most welcome and nothing was too much trouble. The forest walk was excellent. The large bar area makes a relaxed area for dogs and owners, creating a lovely home from home feeling. We will certainly return.

What a wonderful weekend. My son and his partner had organised this as a treat for my wife and I and what a wonderful treat it was. The 4 of us really enjoyed the stay. Get a bat of the micro brews - excellent, especially the mild. Try a malt or two, wonderfully relaxing. The smoked steaks are wonderful, and... More
