Our third visit to The Boar and still no complaints. Wonderful friendly landlords, great choice of drinks, a menu that is difficult to choose from and food that is hard to beat.

We stayed here as it is just down the road from our friends' house. The pub is very nice and the room we had was lovely. It looks newly decorated with everything spotlessly clean. The staff were friendly and helpful and breakfast plentiful and tasty. Really good. We hope to come back 😀👍
