“Good Food Good Prices”
Reviewed May 1, 2013

We caled in on a Saturday night as we hadnt booked at the pub up the road (the one that brews its own excellent beer) but they could not fit us in. A bit apprehensive at first as no one else appeared to be dining but we were soon joined by other diners, including a couple who had booked at the other place but had to wait so gave up.

Very good food, very reasonable prices and attentive staff. The atmosphere was relaxed and nothing was too much trouble. Some imaginative items on the menu with good flavour combinations from an adventurous chef. The portions are big which meant two courses was about my limit.

Would definately visit again

“Perfect way to round off 3 nights in Bishops Castle”
Reviewed April 5, 2013

Our family wanted to leave Bishops Castle on a high after spending three lovely nights in a self catering cottage.
Walking through the town we were drawn by the clean tidy exterior and after having a quick look at the menu we decided to give it a whirl.
The Boars Head has a traditional feel to it with the stone walls and open fire place and the whole place had a great ambience about it.
Service was excellent and very friendly and the food was brilliant. Children's menus were also available and had something for everyone on there. Great selection of drinks also. A great way to finish our shirt break

“Best pub in Bishops Castle”
Reviewed April 4, 2013

Had 2 meals here this week. Both were very tasty, really good sized portions . Staff very pleasant and friendly. We visited every other bar in the town and this place stood out above the rest.

“Good food”
Reviewed March 21, 2013

Quiet, pleasant pub. Traditional pub fare with a couple of nice chef's twists. Good value and reasonable choice of ales, lagers and wines. Worth a visit for a change of scenery if you're staying in the village.
