Not until it's Managed properly
Wish I had read Mike's review before we went !
We thought we'd try the Chicken Tikka - DON'T BOTHER !!
It was awful - the poppadom was half chewy and the other half had been
squashed by the balti dish. The naan bread was rubbery at one end
- a sure sign of being over heated in a microwave.
The chicken dish itself was tasteless and just about warm enough
although the metal balti dish itself was COLD. The pilau rice
was tasteless too.
Having paid £20.53 (incl a couple of beers) we left feeling
miserable and hungry.
SORT YOURSELVES OUT - it could be a nice pub.
By the way - don't be lazy, take down the sign that promises
"Two for £10" because this was a Saturday and the offer is
only valid Monday to Friday. AND - the ashtrays outside need
emptying.

Great food, great staff
  9 / 10
I have been going to the boars head for years. It was a great brewers fayre and is still good. I have the gammon everytime I go there, its massive and always tasty. My wife has the lasagne, which is home cooked.

In the three years I've been coming to the boars head, I've only ever had to complain once - and the manager sorted the problem (cold food I think) immediately.

The staff are friendly and they always make a fuss over my son. Highly recommended!

Don't Bother
  1 / 10
This place changed hands a few months ago, and it is absolutely hopeless!
My first two visits were a disaster with poor service and undercooked food. All I could hear from surrounding tables were complaints and the staff apologising. The manager did not appear to take any of this on board and was handing out free vouchers left right and centre.
I had given up on the place, but got dragged along for a third time with friends, and much to my surprise all was well.
Based on this third experience I risked it again today, what a mistake! Half the menu was off, and I ended up going for a sirloin steak. For the best part of £10 I got a small weary piece of steak with chips and a few peas. My son on the other hand had his usual, raw beef burger!
A 25% success rate is not acceptable, I won?t be going back. If you are thinking of giving it a try, stay on the A6 for another mile and visit Old Nell?s instead.
