Went to Boars Head Christmas Eve, 6 adults & 2 children, had great service & food, don't know what people are moaning about, was busy, but didn't have to wait long for food, new owner apparently, well we will be back, thank you.

We visited on a Saturday lunchtime and on arrival there is a large car park in need of a little repair. The building is quaint with open fire place and low beams in places. We ordered from the main menu and being a party of 8, were happy that all food arrived at the same time. The quality of the... More

Second visit. Both times a very long wait, over 40 minutes. First visit food was nice but beef goulash on second visit was awful, small portion for money and was made with packet peppercorn sauce served it mushrooms and tough fatty beef. Staff were friendly, shame because it could be really nice with a bit more effort.

Came across this place during a Sunday walk. Spacious, friendly, good atmosphere. Our burgers took getting on for 30mins to arrive - they had 2 tables just ahead of us and we weren't in any rash so I'll let them off ! Very tasty, good value. Would visit again.

Called in on the way home having been here a number of times in the past. Arrived at 12:15 lunch time and the barman was very welcoming , surprised that there was only a small number of people in the pub as previously has always been busy. Ordered drinks and meals. Steak pie, lasagne, gammon and salmon & scallop tart.... More

Nice feel to the place. Was averagely busy for a Friday lunchtime. Not overrun. Staff a bit thin on the ground. A sandwich and chips took over 45 minutes to come - so did not work for a lunchtime quick get out of the office lunch venue.
