Stopped here after cycling 75 miles, the welcome from the staff was very friendly and couldn't be more helpful securing the bikes. Evening meal and breakfast was excellent and a perfect start to the day.

I was working in this venue as part of a Blues Brothers tribute show last Friday (17th April 15) and I was blown away by the standard of service we were given by the fantastic staff there. Stuart was a gentleman who couldn't do enough for us and Darren (the 2 owners) made me laugh from the moment we spoke.... More

We were a bit put off being presented with our credit card receipt for our two night stay as we arrived. It meant there was no potential to add to our bill and it felt weird leaving without a goodbye. There were rules in the room which I guess reflect the clientele today but somehow put me on edge as...

Living not far away in Montgomery, my partner and I eat at the Boars Head three or four times a year and often think we should visit more as the food there is really delicious, the service prompt and the atmosphere friendly. We were there earlier this evening and once again we both had the Shropshire hotpot, which, being home-cooked,... More

The room was very comfortable, private and spacious. The village itself was very quaint and lovely to walk around. We stayed in the Boars Head for food in the evening and I'm so glad we did as it was the best meal I've had in a resteraunt for a long time (I opted for the lemon chicken with wild rice... More

A good welcome, and room was excellent. Friendly staff, good food, extremely comfy bed. Ideally placed in the town, a country pub atmosphere, easy access to the rooms, and on site parking, there is also an I house post office!

Title says it all... I went mountain biking and stayed here. Room was very comfortable and the service was great and efficient. The food and atmosphere in the pub was great too. Would recommend for any fellow mountain bikers or couples / families looking for a weekend away. I will return again in the summer!

Booked three rooms and a table for 20 people in the restaurant, to stay with friends in May, this was booked last year, we were informed this week that the booking wouldn't be honoured because of an event the pub had booked 3 months after we had booked and it was ticket only and we were told categorically that we...

drrnp, Owner at The Boars Head Hotel, responded to this review

This review is posted purely by a customer who has not stayed with us since last year and his basis for rating such a poor review is because he could not manipulate me into agreeing to his terms. Thank you for taking the time to review our business but I am sure our potential customers will see this for what... More
