We attended a friend's wedding reception at this lovely rustic hotel. We stayed in the accommodation for two nights. The room was spacious and well decorated and the bedroom has all you could need in terms of hairdryer, tea and coffee facilities, tv, nice tasteful toiletries etc. The only downside was that we weren't very comfortable in the beds as...

Stopped off here for lunch after taking part in Clay Pigeon Shooting (with Michael Coates - this is the site where it takes place). The food was perfect for lunch after being out for the morning - it was a warm and quiet environment which was just what was needed. Staff were friendly and helpful, facilities were all clean -...

This is one of our favourite hotels ever. We stay a few times a year. The hotel is dog friendly and very clean. Charming, laid back atmosphere. The staff are extremely friendly. Food perfect. The woodland round the hotel is fantastic, especially for dog walking. The grounds are well kept. Extra little touches like the smokehouse, mini brewery and open... More

Having had dinner at the Wild Boar many times before it seemed like the prefect venue for our Christmas party. Everything on the night ran very smoothly, despite being in a large group of 24 we were all looked after very well, there was only one meal which was missed out and was very quickly sorted out by the waiting...

We stayed for the New Year package and overall it was fab. The place has great character and the staff are all very friendly and attentive. The package elements were excellent - clay pigeon shooting, country walk, champagne tasting all good fun and well organised, as were the evening meals & entertainment (murder mystery, casino night, disco). The food quality... More

We opted for a classic room which at £119 per room per night B&B wasn't too bad especially as the room was clean, comfortable and a good size.
