As a well travelled pup, I always look forward to staying at the Boars Head I have never been disappointed and our latest stay was no exception. My humans opted for the Christmas package arriving for three nights on 24 December 2016. The checking in process was easy and quick thanks to the amazing Anna and our room (Thornton) in...

So I was looking round places to book for my sister and mum with the dogs for Christmas that wasn't too far away from Lincolnshire as it was only for a weekend but obviously dog friendly, I booked in December after being recommended by a friend at work and how impressed we were!!!! Very clear directions and found it straight...

N.B. I'm reviewing the restaurant only. Met some friends here as it was equidistant for us to travel to and Ripley is a nice place to walk around. We had met here before a few years ago and it had been OK. This time it wasn't even that. They were clearly under-staffed during a holiday period and it took nearly...

I called late morning to book a lunch table for a friend and I. The phone was answered very promptly, professionally and warmly. We ate at 1.30pm. My friend had the veggie option and I had the salmon. I don't eat meat and it was no problem at all to have different veg (the original ones had some bacon in...

Decided to have a quick Sunday lunch and what a bitter disappointment. Poorly cooked vegetables, only two halves of one roast potato. The pork loin was sliced so thinly it looked like pale bacon. We ordered dessert waited 20 minutes to discover the chef hadn't even started to make them, allegedly. Not good value for money at all taking advantage...

A couple of weeks ago we stayed here and I commented that although the hotel , breakfast and rooms etc were amazing, our bathroom was a bit chilly and could do with a revamp. 2 weeks later we visited and stayed in the same room and amazingly the whole bathroom had been ripped out and renovated with a huge double...

Booked for one nights stay as a small break. Couldn't have asked for more. Lovely setting and building. Staff friendly and helpful. Booked a small double room but found it more than adequate. Food was great, tasty and plentiful. Would definitely return.

Having stayed at the Boars Head on a number of occasions, we stopped off for a coffee en route to knaresborough. Ripley is a delightful hamlet, and so worth a visit. The hotel is a great place to stay, warm, welcoming and quite gracious.

In a lovely village near Ripon and Harrogate. This is a traditional hotel and pub with a welcoming modern feel. Very comfortable rooms and lounges and helpful staff. Good breakfast and the bar meal was good quality and value. Would definitely stay again.
