Fun little local hangout

We wandered in here quite by accident. Sat at the bar, got to know the locals and had just a wonderful time. If you want good beer and good company - this little joint is the place.

Went after Sunday afternoon theatre for wings and Caesar salad. The beer was good as was the service, the food not so much. Salad was showing signs of rust and the dressing was bottled. Wings were a good size but suffered from pre-cooking and rewarming which left them very dry (overdone). Will return for a beer in future, but will... More

After the theatre we dropped into the Boar’s Head Pub, which we found very cozy and comfortable with its vintage beer signs, tables, and couch. It seemed to attract a local crowd. The atmosphere was relaxed and the service was prompt. We had local beers and sweet potato fries – tasty, nothing fancy.

Not bad bar food. Very limited offerings, but burgers, in fact, pretty good (Boar burger interesting). Friendly service. Very meager wine list (better for beer). However, the crowd there is often raucous, so don't expect and elegant or quiet or romantic dining experience. It's a real bar scene, though with some touches of family-friendliness.

We recently went in between shows at the Festival Theatre. This was by far the worst experience we have had at a bar - and we are people who like to sample different beers and sit at the bar to eat at most places we visit. The staff was very rude and unfriendly. They seemed to be arguing with each... More

A visit with friends and family took us to Stratford and the Boar's Head. They advertised the biggest wings in town and I was not disappointed. MJ had the onion rings and they were delicious too. But the best thing about the Boar Head in the summer is to be able to enjoy a beer outside and watch the pleopel

We had drinks on the front patio. The waitstaff was friendly and attentive. We enjoyed the area as it was a great spot to sit outside on a summer night and people watch.

The food and staff at this pub are fantastic. The wait staff is friendly, helpful and efficient. The chef kindly made subtle changes to the food we ordered. We came back three times in a week.
