The place looks so inviting as you approach. The interior has a superb inglenook type fireplace. There the good points end. Should have walked, the place empty. The Waitress was indifferent to bloody minded with a sneer in place of a smile. Three meals were chosen only to be told, "Its off", or "aint got no Ham, so want extra... More

Was greeted by two very different characters at the bar when checking in. One extremely lovely helpful bar manager and one very rude and agressive owner who was shouting at the staff in front of me. He's definitely in the wrong job!! I was shown to my room which was very average but the thing that stood out the most... More

Lovely pub/restaurant with a great atmosphere. Food was well presented and tasty but portions were small and, I felt, a little overpriced. Not rustic, more nouvelle cuisine - this is an observation, not a criticism. Would recommend.

Before writing a review I took the time to look over the others to see if it was just me being picky but it seems not. I came here with some friends and found the place to be quite flat. There was no atmosphere in the place which I suppose isnt surprising as we were the only ones there. I... More

We recently had a birthday meal in a large group here, and a number of the meals had to be returned as they were cold - which for what they cost, I would not expect. Also, a few of the party wanted to have one of the "nibbles" menu choices as a starter, and asked for it to be brought... More

Stopped off for Sunday lunch and had no complaints on any aspect and although the food did not set the world on fire it was plentiful and good value for money. The staff were attentive but not over bearing and it let you relax over the lunch rather than feeling hurried.

We have eaten at the golden boar on numerous occasions over the last few years and have never had a bad meal. We have always had a polite and courteous welcome and service from the staff and owner. I have read some of the reviews however this is not a reflection of our experience at all. The food we have... More

We were really disappointed with our stay at the Golden Boar and would definitely not recommend this accommodation, From check in to check out we found the Owner, to be unwelcoming, rude and definitely in the wrong industry! After phoning ahead to say that we would be checking in at 3pm we were told that they were closed until 5.30... More

Thank you for your review although I do feel that your representation of events is factually inaccurate, largely fabricated and certainly exaggerated. When you originally booked you were made aware of our check-in times of between 3-9pm & informed us that you would arrive early to drop off your bags and collect your keys which seemed no problem to you...

Considering the cost £ 125 a night plus a £40 late check in this represents poor value. I I expected a lovely inn with oldy world charm and a generous host. Not so. One tea bag per person and one coffee satchel. When I asked the manger if I could have a couple of tea bags he told me that... More
