What a great stay we had. Arrived early on the Saturday morning and were greeted by the owner and his son. We had a lovely cooked breakfast which was freshly cooked for us. As there was 12 of us, everything came out pipping hot and we did not wait long for it. We had an evening meal which was first... More

Very friendly staff. Double room very comfortable. Shame the TV was out of the ark, and the shower barely had enough pressure to force out enough water for a decent shower. Wifi was not available i the room, only in the pub itself - a cheap booster would sort this. Could be seen as pickey, didnt deter us from our... More

Booked online, so I had not realised that they shut during the afternoon (2pm - 5pm). However, they phoned me the day before and waited for us to arrive a little after 2, which was kind and thoughtful. The room was in a separate block out the back of the main building. The room and bathroom were of good size,... More

Just had late Mothering Sunday meal with a party of 13 of us. The staff were very friendly and helpful, promptly taking us to our table. The food was most enjoyable, perhaps not child friendly as such but it was a special Mother's Day menu. We all enjoyed our meal.....had to eat my words with pudding. My husband ordered a... More

Dropped by on the off-chance with friends and was very pleasantry surprised. A very nice Inn with a roaring log burning fire creating a welcoming ambience. The staff were friendly and helpful - my wife is wheat and diary intolerant and they were more than accommodating with their menu, not having to be promoted to swap out the bread for... More

Stopped at the wild boar overnight while working in the area, we were greeted by the owner, very friendly and helpful. Our room was a twin which was clean, comfortable and very warm. We had an evening meal which was excellent and the breakfast the next morning was just as good. Well worth the money.

Popped in here for lunch on a weekend in November, we were worried they might have stopped serving food but they assured us they had. There was no one else dining in the restaurant, in fact there was no one else in the pub at all save the bar staff and ourselves. Probably not the best sign! We were handed... More

On the 21st November 2015 I married my soul mate, and we had our wedding reception at the golden boar. They could not have done enough for us!

Wedding breakfast for 45 guests and evening reception for 100 held here. Excellent food, very helpful staff and management, really couldn't do enough for our daughters special day, rooms clean and comfortable. Lovely atmosphere. What's not to like?
