We arrived at The Wild Board Grill & Smokehouse one night in March, it was pouring down outside, as we rushed inside we were welcomed by lovely staff & a warm, friendly atmosphere. The menu has great choice in all courses and the food served piping hot and presented beautifully. We enjoyed the Deli Board to start - a selection... More

The Wild Boar Grill and Smokehouse has quite a reputation and you really need to book well in advance. We were on a Saturday night and despite being informed that the only table available was at 2045 we were a bit surprised to find the restaurant half empty when we arrived. Nonetheless the food was good and the service super... More

Everything we had was amazing but the duo of Fillet Steak was top-notch. At breakfast we were spoilt for choice too.

If you like steak, just go and try it, you will not be disappointed. Chateaubriand was simply delicious.

Are you sure? Are you really sure? A cautionary tale .......on Friday lunchtime, a phone call was made to the Wild Boar and a table was booked for lunch for 2 people on Saturday. Or so we thought!The car park was full which looked promising but arriving in the bar, we found ourselves amongst a wedding party. We went through... More

Great location, menu and very smart inside. All the food was excellent apart from my steak which was only 'good'. For a smokehouse, and for the expensive prices I would expect the best quality to get 5*

My wife and I had a fantastic 2 day break at the Wild Boar. The food was outstanding - a sharing platter as a starter that didn't have everything covered in breadcrumbs or batter was lovely. The pork scratchings were the best ever. My highlight was the smoked Ostrich steak - just like the best fillet steak you can imagine.... More

Went with my husband for our valentines treat. Had seen all the good reviews online and we both love steak so we were really looking forward to trying the steak. I thought the whole atmosphere was very quiet in there you could hear everyone talking and when they were chewing their pork scratchings! We ordered pigs in blanket and pork... More
