This has just jumped to the top of our lake district restaurants. The food was simply outstanding and the restaurant itself equally good. Starting with some hot crackling whilst we had a drink and looked over the menu, we then had the Deli Board Platter to share with loads of home smoked goodies, which really was tasty, then the Chateaubriand cooked perfectly (rare of course) with massive onion rings, garlic mushrooms and triple cooked chips, then flaming Baked Alaska to finish. Cannot ask for more and REALLY reasonably charged. We will make a trip to the lakes again very soon, JUST to come here.

We went to stay for a weekend wedding. Great to have so many bedrooms to accommodate the guests. Felt like a house party in a friend's house with a five star restaurant attached! Staff very attentive and always ready with a smile. Room lovely, crisp cotton sheets, clean new bathroom fittings. Food at reception amazing, every guest had hot food and at the same time, pretty impressive. A large number of us had gone for steak and they were cooked perfectly. Had marquee for evening reception so more guests could come. French doors from room on to pretty garden, double glazed windows kept any party noise from marquee out completely, when we retired at 12.30am I thought the music had been turned off! (We were also the closest bedroom to the marquee). On the Friday night had a whiskey tasting, nice chap gave us all a laugh as well as being informative. Really was a relaxing time and made the wedding so much more of a memorable occasion.

Food was excellent, great steaks, not a lot of other options on the menu though. Let down by the staff, not very attentive, my drink got taken away while outside waiting for dessert, general lack of making the customer feel welcomed. Visited better places for a cheaper price.

Great steaks were had by all, we were well looked after by all the team whilst staying at the Wild Boar. You can have Sirloin, Rib Eye, Fillet or even Chateaubriand! Burgers are good too or why not try the Fish or chicken options.
Have been that impressed we have booked our daughters wedding there for 2015

Great atmosphere...very attentive service...delicious food...perfect celebration meal.
I had the Lamb Shank and it was cooked to perfection, followed by Eton Mess and I was very pleasantly full. My Husband had the Steak & Kidney Pudding - full of lovely tender meat & melt in the mouth pastry, followed by Sticky Toffee Pudding - a very generous portion & delicious. We highly recommend this restaurant.
