Description: Just outside of Chester in the attractive village of Beeston, The Wild Boar hotel is a popular spot for dining outside of the city. The Brasserie, with its chilled out Parisian vibe, feels entirely cosmopolitan despite its location within the walls of a Tudor-style building complete with low beams and provincial outlook. Comfortable leather banquettes and huge floral prints are joined by monochrome photography on the walls and huge windows letting light flood in to the room. With ingredients sourced entirely from British suppliers Chef Nathan Watts the menu is a classy modern take on homely favourites with an international flavour.

My husband & I stayed for 2 nights at The Wild Boar using a Wowcher voucher. The deal included breakfast.
The hotel is elevated above the beautiful Cheshire countryside & is in walking distance of the Shropshire canal towpaths from where you can enjoy the barges & locks. There are also fantastic walks along country lanes to Peckforton & Beeston through wonderful farmland & countryside.
Breakfast & dinner is served in the Brasserie from where you can enjoy the views whilst eating lovely food.
The food is very well cooked & very good value for money as the portions are huge!
We enjoyed our hot & cold buffet breakfasts served by friendly staff. The staff throughout the hotel are really lovely & friendly.
The Brasserie is attractively decorated, the menu has good variety & food is served by well trained staff & beautifully presented.
We chose starters, the roast peppers, sundried tomato & olives which was only £3.50, was huge & served with crispy bread to mop up the delicious oil. My husband chose the smoked chicken & blue cheese. This could have been a main meal! If we had realised the size of the starters we probably would have just ordered mains!
The mains are just as impressive & delicious. I chose the local carved ham, eggs & chunky chips, hubby chose the cod & chips. We also ordered two sides . Hubby had a pint of bitter & I a large dry white wine, & the bill came to just under £48!!! What value for money & so unexpected in this highly recommended hotel.
We also enjoyed an afternoon tea on our first day. This was served in the lounge area & again was fantastic & great value for money. The sandwiches were so fresh & the cakes & scones tasted as though they had just come out of the oven, scrumptious!
Try this hotel & brasserie. We shall be returning & recommending to our friends & family.

The wild boar sits high on the hill going out of Beeston in an elevated position. The superb black and white building looks like a place of luxury. The inside decor is very tired in some places and needs attention. The staff are extremely polite and attentive.The soup could have been a little hotter ,main meal very basic , The pudding was delicious.

We called at this hotel whilst in the area and went into the Brassiere for a light lunch. We ordered a plate of sandwiches to share and some thick cut chips - delicious. There were so many sandwiches we actually thought they had given us two portions instead of one.
Nice olde world surroundings and good waiter service, couldn't fault it.
