We have been to this pub a few times over the last couple of years. Summertime was very nice sitting outside on the patio watching the world go by enjoying a lovely pint of Fullers ESB. We were inside last visit, the interior is very much like a pub and the menu featured a fair selection of pub grub and... More

Stopped in for some pub food and beer and I wasn't disappointed. I was told if I liked the pub atmosphere this is the place. First off, the beer variety was fantastic. They had a great selection of craft beer, even some local stuff from Black Swan. Very impressed. Second, the food. Awesome menu and a wide variety of pub... More

Try the Boar Chili -- Awesome ! Every one around us was eating the wings - which looked and smelled delicious. Service was very fun and friendly. Lots of beer choices on draft - all frosty cold.

Was in Stratford for two plays and looking forward to trying some local restaurants. Started out with a pub lunch at the Boar's Head Pub, part of the Queen's Inn. Great surroundings - terrible service and my meal was the worst I've had in many years. The attentiveness of the staff could best be described as perfunctory. I asked about... More

Typical pub food. Nothing special. But we just popped in for a quick pre-show bite. The service was good and my husband was happy to be able to catch the Blue Jays game on the TV.

As Stratford restaurants go this is more casual and much less expensive than most. A British pub, but I did not feel the quaintness in the decor that one should expect. We did not find the food remarkable. Salmon salad was very generous, although the salmon had too much of a fishy taste. I quite enjoyed the Banger and Mash,... More
