This visit was every bit as good as I remember my last stay here in 2003. We stayed in a superior room in Birchwood House across the road from the main building. I've not seen the standard rooms but would recommend splurging and upgrading to a superior room. Luxurious bathroom with free-standing bath and shower. The bed was extremely comfortable too. There was complimentary sherry and biscuits and also a teapot and cafetiere in the room. These little extras made all the difference.
We ate in the brasserie and found the service, food and ambience to be excellent. The cosy lounge / drawing room with open fire were very relaxing both for an afternoon drink with the papers and equally after dinner with coffee.
Breakfast was just as enjoyable. Lots of choice and a freshly cooked Yorkshire breakfast sets you up for the day.
A stay includes entry to Ripley Castle and gardens just a short walk from the Boars Head.
We will definitely be back but will be sure not to leave it another 10 years this time!
