Dropped by on the off-chance with friends and was very pleasantry surprised. A very nice Inn with a roaring log burning fire creating a welcoming ambience. The staff were friendly and helpful - my wife is wheat and diary intolerant and they were more than accommodating with their menu, not having to be promoted to swap out the bread for... More

Stopped at the wild boar overnight while working in the area, we were greeted by the owner, very friendly and helpful. Our room was a twin which was clean, comfortable and very warm. We had an evening meal which was excellent and the breakfast the next morning was just as good. Well worth the money.

Popped in here for lunch on a weekend in November, we were worried they might have stopped serving food but they assured us they had. There was no one else dining in the restaurant, in fact there was no one else in the pub at all save the bar staff and ourselves. Probably not the best sign! We were handed... More

On the 21st November 2015 I married my soul mate, and we had our wedding reception at the golden boar. They could not have done enough for us! The food was brilliant and not a single bad word has been said by any of our guests day or evening. They were welcoming, helpful, and did everything we could have asked... More

Wedding breakfast for 45 guests and evening reception for 100 held here. Excellent food, very helpful staff and management, really couldn't do enough for our daughters special day, rooms clean and comfortable. Lovely atmosphere. What's not to like?

Visited here whilst visiting the new Hoseasons site at the local stud park and had asked for a local good pub and was directed here. We were fitted in though we hadn't booked and staff were friendly and polite. Looking at other reviews on here, there may be problems with the b&B but there are none with the restaurant. Hubby...

My mother and I stopped off for a three course lunch today and as usual we thoroughly enjoyed what The Golden Boar had to offer. While visiting, we were thrilled to learn that they were once again hosting Christmas Day luncheon and we wasted no time in making a booking. This will be our third Christmas Day meal here and...

The Golden Boar is a lovely place to eat. The prices are higher than the average pub but this is reflected in the quality of the food and the ambiance of the restaurant. The tables are well set out, plenty of space between each one. Although not a wide choice on the menu the food is very well cooked and... More

This place is a higher-priced restaurant but worth every penny. I had a chicken dish with risotto that was delicious!!! The atmosphere was so warm and inviting and the wait staff and bartenders were attentive. It was a meal I won't soon forget! Dying to go back!
