This is possibly the second best Sunday roast I’ve ever had (second obviously to my mums!). The food was delicious, staff extremely friendly and helpful and there was a lovely atmosphere. I would definitely recommend this for food and am looking forward to visiting again.

Been to The Boars a few times for various meals, Breakfast to Evening Meals, and found it a friendly and pleasant experience, with good food, can’t complain. The Katsu curry is the star of the show!
