Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The Boar's Head is a lovely old Victorian pub, with loads of character. Our room had been freshly decorated and was clean. At check-in, we were shown to our room but not given any other information about how to get back into the building when returning late at night or what time breakfast would be served. When we returned from our social event that night, the building was locked. We could hear voices and music from inside, but despite ringing two doorbells and banging on the door, we could not get in. In the end, my partner climbed in through a ground floor open window, and the staff member in duty came to open the door. The same staff member was having a lock-in with friends. Unfortunately, our room was above the pool room and it was very noisy. At 3am, I went down to the pool room and pointed out that we were trying to sleep. I tried to be accommodating and said to the staff member that if he wasn't going to curtail his partying, we'd move to another room. I was pretty gobsmacked when he went to check whether there was a room we could move to! There wasn't another room so we had to put up with the noise until the partygoers ran out of steam. Breakfast was good, though!

For value for money this is a brilliant hotel. So pleased with the experience. The room was a good size with en suite that had a nice shower. They included shower gel etc and towels, which was fantastic. They even include a complementary breakfast, which is a nice bonus. Location was good for us. The on site car park was very small and always full whilst here, but there is a free car park minutes away that was absolutely fine. All in all for the price paid a brilliant stay.

Came to stay here with my partner for 2 nights, the evening food was lovely and the breakfast was great quality, the weather was so hot and we was really worried about being too hot but in our room a fan was provided which we were super pleased with. Highly recommend

Went into the bar to order drinks. Womanhad her back to us doing some administration work. She knew we was there, because there was 4 of us chatting. In the 5 minutes we waited patiently, not once did she turn round to say,will be with you soon. As we decided to leave she turned round and smirked. Definitely will not return.

Easy check in at the bar. We were shown to our room upstairs. Dangerously dark stairwell with an automatic light that comes on once you have scrambled your way to the top. very olde worlde pub with some lovely features. Room comfortable and a good size. Shower grubby and mouldy. The room wasnt serviced so no tea and coffee top up after 1st night. Breakfast time an absolute shambles. Waiter 30 minutes and no sign of any staff. My mother and brother even managed to get into the kitchen in their search for someone to take our order where the cooked breakfast items lay open on the counter already pre cooked and waiting heating up. poor choice of continental breakfast. 2nd day there were 14 people eating breakfast and it was farcical having to constantly ask for items to be replenished and no staff present to help! I honestly expected Ant and Dec to jump out qa part of a set up. Someone had to go out to the shops to get bread for toast. Surely a busy breakfast on bank holiday sunday would have warranted having bread in ready!!! Shambolic which is a shame as it could be an excellent establishment with a bit more care and attention.

Great food, the Sunday roast was absolutely delicious. Service was a little slow and we had to go and ask for our drinks a couple of times but the waitress was absolutely lovely - we did have a table of 8 at a very busy time. Overall the experience was great and would recommend - very good value for money too. Also, we took our dog and they got a doggy Sunday roast too

We wanted a cheap stay as was just up for a couple of days to see family. Found this via a red letter day voucher we had. Good friendly place, staff were spot on happy to help with any questions. Room was basic but very clean with a on-suite bathroom, TV and tea and coffee making facilities. Came with breakfast which was a full English along with a choice of bread juice etc, all very good quality. Had a couple of drinks in the bar one night really nice staff happy to chat. Overall very pleased given five stars based on value for money and overall cleanliness. If you are after a good value place to stay give them a try really good staff 👍

Stayed here last night in room 10 after visiting the Magical Woodland at Blakemere Village. Check in to check out was as smooth as could possibly wish for - No messing round - spoke to a nice girl at the bar who showed us to our room after giving our name, breakfast order sheets given to us with plenty to choose from (Full English was delicious!). Room didn't look anything like the hotels website but this is not a bad thing - the room was lovely and had a refurb by the looks of things. Plenty of room for 2 people, lots of lighting and a modern bathroom - most of all it was very clean! Have been on a little roadtrip lately staying at a few different hotels (Including Ruthin and Peckforton Castle) but this bed was hands down the comfiest we have stayed in, I went out like a light and even debated skipping breakfast as I was so comfy (Glad I didn't, the Scran was amazing and set us up for the day). Check out was simple - gave the keys to the housekeeper and said our goodbyes to two ladies. Overall at £60 for a Saturday night with Brekkie and lovely hospitality then i can assure you this place is absolute value for money. If we are ever in the area again then this will be our go to. Side note: was talking to Liz and Ange when we was leaving and happened to mention we have just had a new back garden bar built - we were then gifted some glasses/runners and an amazing Sign Board to take home! It's the small things that make amazing memories - Honestly book this place and you won't be dissapointed!

The Boars Head is unpretentious. It is, at heart, a traditional pub and although it does have letting rooms, it really focuses on just being a basic but comfortable pub. The food was pretty good with some very interesting sharing platters and everything is reasonably prices. Staff were very friendly and served us well There is a delightful patio to the rear is the weather permits

with the lock down due to Covid19 I thought I was not going to be able to treat my wife to a meal out for our 47th wedding anniversary we contacted the Boars head and they said they could deliver the food was excellent well cooked and hot when it arrived and plenty of it at a good price and a nice surprise of an anniversary card with it. We both had the lamb chops (3 chops each) I had the boiled potatoes my wife had the mash the minted gravy was delicious and plenty of veg peas, carrots and green beans we were both very impressed with the food

Due to the lockdown decided to get a takeaway, from here, we had mince beef and onion pie chips and mushy peas, great value for money and absolutely delicious.
