We stayed in a feature room which was lovely, very clean, and had everything we needed. All of the staff were very friendly, and nothing was too much trouble. We ate... More

Been to the Boar on many occasions over the last 15 years or so and have very seldom been disappointed. We had a gift voucher to use and did not fancy the one hour drive home late at night after a heavy meal, so we thought we would book a room for the night. We were extremely impressed with all...

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

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
