I've visited on a normal evening and one of the curry specials and on both occasions the service and standard of the food was excellent. The Boars head is classy but with a proper country pub atmosphere and I can highly recommend it.

My wife and I returned to the Boar's Head for dinner recently, and found that it just keeps getting better.
The warmth of the welcome was terrific, without ever being obsequious.
The service was prompt, attentive, and came with a smile.
The food was really excellent, and prepared exactly as had been requested.
Doreen and Angela continue to excel.
This is a wonderful addition to the cuisine in South Oxfordshire.

We visited this Restaurant last week with very good Friends, the food was delicious,all courses
were of a very high standard and a good Menue choice.
The Restaurant was very well looked after and very clean. I am a person who likes a Cloth on the
table and cloth Napkins,It was a high price, which was very acceptable for such good food but I did think if it had Linen on the Table it would be even better,this is not a criticism,but only my way of thinking

Boar's Head is a country pub in a lovely English village owned by the most accommodating people. One always receives a warm welcome and the food is excellent, especially for Sunday lunch. Reasonably priced, well cooked and presented dishes accompanied by good wines and special beers with good service. What more would one want? Well... that is until a group of 4 adults and 3 children pitch up at the next table. The children were well behaved but the adults talked as though they owned the whole place in loud, screeching voices spoiling the whole experience for us and out guests. Two other tables had the same number of adults and we could not hear a word from them so why do some people think they can ruin our space with their cacophany?
