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

We love our mid week lunches in this great pub,.The other day we ate ' Cote de Beouf' from the specials menu, which was excellent, it's a dish shared by two people or one person if you have a very large appetite... and consists of a large rib of beef cooked to your liking, served with chips, tomatoes and mushrooms....its...

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.

I ate here on Friday evening and it was so so lovely! The pub it's self looks really nice & the outdoors is really peaceful surrounded by fields! The menu is really good with a great balance of 'normal' pub grub meals and some slightly 'fancier' meals. I was on a large table & I didn't hear one grumble about... More
