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!

Room was at £90 on booking.com however haggled the owner over the phone down to £85.00. Given the price all I expected was a clean basic room and functioning amenities such as a working shower and comfortable bed. The mattress was 'sprung' sharply in several places and the shower did not work. Dirty bath with hairs. This is unacceptable for... More

It has been a couple of years since we were last here but as soon as we walked in, I was asking myself why. The bar area is very inviting and has a nice atmosphere. After a warm welcome we were taken through to a very well set out restaurant, which like the bar, has a very nice feel to... More

Considering they are the 'only business in the village' they were welcoming and the service was quite good. We arranged to have our staff Christmas meal there last night - all fifteen of us - and it was spot on. A good range of well-presented dishes throughout the meal with efficient, friendly service. Would definitely recommend for a good meal... More

Dalham & Gazeley W.I. chose this venue for their annual Christmas dinner this year and they weren't disappointed. The food was very good, the atmosphere warm and festive and the staff very friendly and efficient. Thanks to Vaggy and everyone at the Golden Boar for a lovely evening.

This was our second visit to the Golden Boar for Sunday lunch. We hadn't booked but were given a table within 10 mins. Perfectly cooked roast beef and vegetables. Not a lot of choice for pudding but my husband had baked stuffed apple that he said was delicious and I had the cheeseboard. Good atmosphere, warm welcome and very clean... More

30/08/14 Golden Boar was chosen as it is our hosts local. There were 15 of us and we were seated in the very pleasant conservatory room. There were a few other lunch guests in the main restaurant. We had pre ordered and the food was brought promptly and was generally good and well presented. One of the guests was not... More

Had lunch here on a Sunday in August. Good and welcome reception when we arrived and good location. 3 courses for £16 is reasonably good value and the food was very good. Wine was around £17-£20 per bottle and the inn also offers accommodation. The staff were really good and efficient and we had a good lunch. Many thanks.
