Thank you for taking the time to review us. We are sorry you were to hot but all the radiators are controlled in the room by simply adjusting to the temperature you require. Apologies if you were unsure how to operate them, and hope that we will see you again in the future. Regards Darren

Stayed for one night at the Boars Head inn and we were very impressed with the facilities and welcome from the staff. The Sunday lunch was excellent with very good portion size and priced very reasonably. The room was very clean and looked like it had recently been decorated. Very comfortable bed and great shower room. Overall a great value...

We popped by The Boars Head on a Thursday at 4pm. It was cosy with a log burner and lots of little rooms to sit in. We had great drinks that the owner/barman recommended based on our favourites. Food was homemade and tasty. Highly recommend the pie.

We stayed for one night at the Boar's Head inn after a weekend in Shrewsbury. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We had a Sunday roast for food and the portions and quality were spot on. There was a good range of real ales and wines on offer with very reasonable pricing too. Our room was very good indeed,...

Friendly staff, food a bit hit and miss, dinner was sorted as soon as a problem was raised, no problem in resolving. The room was nice and clean, the parking secure. It is a quiet town but it's nice to be able to park off the road and not have to worry about unwanted attention.

A warm reception by the restaurant staff made this a positive experience for a mid day meal celebrating a family birthday.The food was good value chosen from a comprehensive menu found on-line, able to be previewed before we went there. The multi fuel log burner kept the seated area warm and inviting. We are likely to return soon
