We arrived at the Boars Head on a Friday and wanted something casual to eat and discovered this restaurant on the property. It was great and the servers are very nice and welcoming.

The Bistro was a nice place to relax and visit after a busy tour day. Drinks were good and service was excellent. We ordered appetizers to share. Relaxing atmosphere was enjoyed.

We stayed at the Boars Head, beautiful place. However, our meals at the Bistro were awful! Didn't want to ruin a good day so didn't complain. My husband had lambs sliders, they were like hockey pocks way over cooked. I had the polyface chicken which was extremely dry, potatoes and string beans were very tough and no seasoning at all....

Europeans eat outside at every possible opportunity, and the Bistro's terrace, overlooking the sweeping grounds of the resort, was exceptionally lovely on a soft summer night.

Its a great place to just have a quick but high quality meal whether you are a guest there or not. Service is great, you can sit indoors or out, food quality is great. They have a smallish menu but there are a lot of options.

Smaller menu than the formal restaurant but offered casual environment. Food and service were good. Had some questions on the menu and the wait staff didn't have the answer. Some items listed ingredients on menu that were not on plate when received and others did not list items that were on the plate. Offered indoor and outdoor seating as well... More
