We popped in for a quick bite out of our local area. It's not the most attractive place from the outside but it was lovely and cosy when you went in. The staff couldn't have been more friendly or helpful if they tried. Food and service was absolutely excellent, freshly and perfectly cooked. We didn't think that it was too... More

I'm not going to say much because the other bad reviews are spot on. Mums fish was overdone and very little fish inside. The meat was chewy on our roast beef dinner. The awkwardness of the payment systems is embarrassing. And some of the young staff are clueless!!

Everytime we go we feel we are intruding on the serving young girls' converstions between themselves. They do not seem interseted in serving customers. The food is average , the beer is... More

This is our third bad experience at the Boars Head we go back because we like the feel of the place however waiting an hour between courses is unacceptable and forgetting to bring out one of the meals is just bad. The girls who serve the food just don't seem bothered and no apologies made we have heard so many... More
