Fabulous !!! Used to be a favourite of ours, but has been closed for a while. New owners, excellent menu, lovely ambience. Were shown to our table and someone immediately appeared to take our drinks order. Husband went for a Sunday roast which was very good. We shared a chicken liver parfait to start ... came in it's own little... More

First visit since the new owners, and they are doing a fantastic job. Ambience as hoped for - relaxed but special treat like. The food was a amazing; very clever compositions of different flavours to create taste sensations. And the puddings were heavenly. All the staff were friendly and professional. Would highly recommend, and will return.

This was the first time we have been since the new owners have taken over. We thought we would go for a weekday lunch to try, and were not disappointed. The place retains its feel from before, which is good, and the food and beer/wine offering is just as good. Had a chat with the new manager Mark who seems... More

....Goats Cheese Tart! The food and the ambience are first class. I was a proper little piggy and had three courses, it all looked so delicious I couldnt make my mind up whether to have a starter and main course or a main course and a dessert...so I had all three! The food was wonderful and beautifully presented and there... More

We went for the roast and it was quite possibly the best roast dinner I've had in a pub. Well cooked roast chicken with lashings of great unctuous rich gravy. Good selection of vegetables including cauliflower cheese, always a winner. Crunchy golden roast potatoes. Frankly it's not worth the bother of shopping and cooking if we can go out and... More

We were very regular visitors to the Boars with the previous owners. We have given new owners 3 chances!! Quality of service is poor,food very mediocre and the warmth of welcome is not there. the surroundings are the same but never again for us and for many of our friends and aquaintances.
