“Superb out of town pub/restaurant”
Reviewed November 11, 2012 via mobile

The friendly pib welcomes visitors and serves superb food. The beer is always spot on and there is a great selection of wines and whiskies. The atmosphere is good and the landlord always willing to please.

“Not your average village pub!”
Reviewed November 11, 2012

You know when you walk into an unfamiliar village pub and everyone turns around and looks you up and down, sussing out who you are and if you belong. Well, The Boars is nothing like that! We had been driving around the area on a Saturday evening, unfamiliar with the area, looking for somewhere to have our evening meal. When we entered, we were greeted by the owner, who made us feel so welcome, we felt like we had been there dozens of times before. We were offered a drink from the excellent wine selection and seated in the dining area. The atmosphere was relaxed and the surroundings carefully and tastefully decorated - a perfect example of rustic charm. My husband and I both ordered the sirloin steak from a wonderful menu of locally-sourced produce. Our steaks were cooked exactly to our requirements and served with divine, hand cooked potato wedges, brandy and peppercorn sauce, mushrooms and cherry tomatoes on the vine. We then both indulged in the treacle ice cream and flapjack dessert, which was to die for! The service was excellent and the whole dining experience was wonderful. We will certainly be returning to sample the menu further.

“The best local pub ever!”
Reviewed October 10, 2012

This is our local pub and i must say myself and my other half love it! Everytime we have family to visit or work colleagues to entertain, we take them to the Boars.
Whether its sampling the beautiful local produce for dinner or sitting in the bar watching football with resident Black Lab Molly, its always a treat.
Ruth and Tony are friendly, knowledgable about the food and drink and most accomodating.

Would highly recommend!!!

“Top notch village pub”
Reviewed September 8, 2012

Not cheap, but great atmosphere and imaginative food. The range of wines and beers is especially good, and it's always warm and cosy in winter time.

“Very pleasantly surprised!”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

God bless Tripadvisor is all I can say! We had a quick look on here to see where to eat local to Snetterton race circuit and saw this place. Best food i've had over a race meeting weekend since the Steak-on-a-Stone at the pistenklaus Nurburg. The staff were friendly and helpful, service was attentive but not intrusive. Food was fantastic - definitely at the top-end of what could be considered gastro-pub grub.

Will definitely be on the "to do" list for all future visits to Snetterton

Thank you for your review. We hope you come back to Snetterton soon! Perhaps you could tell us about the steak on stone - it sound intriguing!
