We were staying a few hundred yards away so tried The Boars Head for lunch. Surroundings are pleasant and the menu pretty typical. Service was pleasant and the food came out quite quickly.
A little more flexibility with menu choices would have been good. For instance only a 10oz steak is offered which was too much for my son. When I asked I was told that smaller sized portion wasn't possible. A request to switch a glass of wine included with the crab sandwich for a half of beer also caused consternation but did prove possible in the end though. Overall you shouldn't be disappointed with the Boat's Head but neither is there anything special about the food and service to make this pub stand out. Solid and reliable rather than special and different.
