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

Me and my wife visited the steakhouse based on recommendation from someone who had been a while back. The food was good but a little steep for what it's worth in terms of small portions for the price. The service was okay as well.

A mini break to include a Smoky Jo smoking course. Wonderful hotel with the friendliest of staff. Chef changed dishes to accommodate a dietary problem. Blazing fires everywhere gave it a cosy feel when cold outside. Room was comfortable with an amazing selection of tea and coffee in the room.

This restaurant is worth coming back for. The food is wonderful (we stayed overnight and breakfast was just as good as dinner). Have never had a smoked steak before, but certainly would have one here again. Not very often that you get a steak done as you ask for either. 10/10 for the chefs. OK, it is not cheap, compared...
