Well my friends had warned me that Sunday was not a good day to eat here, but I thought surely they'd make an effort on a Sunday. My experience during the week has already been variable, as have my colleagues. Anyway, Sunday I had the 3 fish special. Two of the fish were delicious, the other tasted awful and made... More

Didn't stay here ate in the bar area next to the hotel today. I had small fish and chips £ 5 something was ok didn't like the silly basket they served it in. My husband paid £ 8.00 ? + for the fish platter. Well that was a disappointment you ready; 1x cooked prawn, 2x oysters, 3 calamari in batter... More

Real English ambience, roaring fire, excellent ales. Lunch, served very rare beef so had to send it back; that's OK if you like it but not if you like it cooked! Did not stay in hotel, so review based only on bar/restaurant

It looks as though somebody has emptied an antique warehouse and crammed it all into this pub/hotel. Forget a visit to the art gallery, just walk round the hotel! I liked it but I know it isn't everyone's cup of tea and other people from work who stayed here didn't like it whilst others loved it - suppose that's true... More

Just been awarded 1 star for food hygiene and taken out of the next good beer guide as the resident dog regularly licks beer from the beer taps! Says it all really. Feel sorry for the brewery in the grounds as Farmers ales are brilliant.

Last weekend my partner and I visited the Blue Boar for an evening meal as we were staying in a local B&B. As a person in my fifties I have experienced many fancy restaurants, bistros, cafes both here and abroad; I love food. The meals we had did not disappoint as so often a meal out does. The portions were... More

You either get a really good meal here or really quite disgusting. Tuesday is the worst evening. One week I had lasagne verdi, which was hot on the outside and frozen on the inside. Last night I had burnt spare ribs. But I have had some very good meals there and I keep going there in the hope there will... More

Quirky, unique, relaxed, friendly. You are in an ancient building, in a small coastal town. I presume those reviewers who were disappointed were expecting 5* luxury and service - at a 3* price. It's a place full of charm and surprises. That it looks old and dusty didnt mean it was: i found it spotless throughout. The menu looked great... More

We had a fantastic lunch here today. Can really recommend this place, if you want something better than the usual pub grub. The menu was so unusual. In fact, there were 3 menus. Their standard menu, available all year round, a menu that changes by the month and a special menu on a chalk board. I thought the prices, for... More

I have been using this establishment for several years now and always take friends there when they are visiting the area. How many historic pub / hotels have a brewery attached serving superb real ale straight from the barrel ? Try the Golden Boar, one of the best real ales I have tasted. Both bars are excellent, but the front... More
