Best chicken wings in Stratford, they also serve locally brewed Black Swan beer - best beer in the world IMO!

The Boar's Head Pub is a family favorite, usually our first lunch spot when we get to town. Good beer, dependable food, broad menu to satisfy our varied tastes. This visit I tried the pulled pork and was very disappointed. Big bun filled with about about 2 tablespoons of meat, several (tasty) onion rings, tomato, lettuce, and onion. While the... More

We visit Stratford every year for the festival, and always stop at the Boar's Head. We often have dinner there between shows, or drop in for beers after the evening show (or both). The staff is friendly and helpful, the prices are reasonable (for example, 9.95 for very good wings, 6. for a pint of good beer) and the service... More

We had lunch at Boer's Head on the weekend. It is easy to find right on Ontario St. We had delicious soup which really seemed more like chili and fries. It was our first time this spring to eat on a patio but it is a little noisy on Ontario St. We looked inside the restaurant and it is very... More

Stopped her for dinner based on the recommendations from the people I worked with at the company I was at. Nice selection of draft beer. Nice menu selection. First time to try steak and mushroom pie. Good taste more like a beef stew consistency. Would try something different next time. Overall would return.

We go to the Boars Head when we want to relax on a weekend and enjoy pub food. It is a great place to go for a draft and listen to some live music (weekends). Recently I enjoyed the one piece fish and chips that came with coleslaw and tartar sauce. It was very good. My husband enjoyed the burger... More

Decided to give this place a try since it was on our "Bacon and Ale" tour. Had a meat pie and was pleasently surprised, very filling and seasoned just right, same as the sweet potatoe fries. The portions are great, definitely get a bang for your buck, The atmosphere is definitely that of a pub, live band/music, and the place... More

If your looking for chic The Boar is not for you. It is a comfy if somewhat dated (What good pubs aren't) local gathering spot located in the historical Queens Hotel. Great wings and selection of draft and bottled beer. Outside patio can be a bit noisy as it is on the main drag. Worth a visit if you enjoy... More

I wanted a quick lunch so decided to try the all you can eat buffet. The problem is that the lines were so long that you'd best take all you want the first time around. There was a a fair amount to choose from, but their chef obviously doesn't season his food. It was all edible but not enjoyable. Others... More
