Good pub food

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... read 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

I only give it a 2 star because I like the atmosphere and would only come back for drinks. I went once and ordered the meat pie it was bland. I went again to try it something else with friends and ordered the wings, they tasted off, I think maybe I got food poisoning because I was sick later in... More

I had the loaded fries and the portion was huge. Real cheese curds would make this much better...that being said, the gravy was absolutely amazing. Service was only ok....I asked for a glass of water and a half hour later when we were ready to go I still hadn't got it. :( all in all it was good and I... More

Looks like a typical pub, with a typical pub name. Any other resemblance stops there. Food is greasy, heavy and tasteless (and that is not how pub food ought to be). Many other choices of restaurants in the area - you will be better off choosing one of those.
