I may well have had a more enjoyable steak, but I can't remember when

Fantastic. Loved the matching wines and the commentary from the local farmer was a nice touch. Attention to detail was thoughtful and well noticed. N

What a treat the evening was. The tasting menu with wine flight was excellent. We couldn’t recommend The Barrington Boar highly enough.

A really excellent Sunday lunch and our last opportunity for a while with lockdown 2 upon us. Absolutely delicious roast and the Caramelised Apple Tart Tatin was simply sublime! We’ll be back as soon as we’re allowed. Good luck!

All good. Difficult to get a buzzing atmosphere with Covid restrictions, but each table had its own good cheer. Service unhurried and attentive, food imaginative and well prepared. Thank you.

A lovely setting for my ch with friend, excellent food and friendly knowledgeable staff. This is an excellent standard and therefore prices are reflected accordingly. Social distancing and Covid restrictions being obsessed and well organised. Sadly only half tables are used and as in most venues you loose that lively jostly cosy atmosphere.

A delightful meal. One of the staff members (possibly manager) was clearly stressed and that showed in her table manner slightly, which meant she was quite short with us a few times. However we understood that she must have been under strain. An otherwise great evening with attentive waitresses and excellent food throughout.

Our first visit to the barrington boar and certainly not our last.plenty of variety on the menu, we chose the tortellini nd hake as starters, both delicious. Mains were the duck and lamb. The duck dish could possibly have benefited from an added side as the endive was rather overpowering. The lamb dish was very well balanced and portion size was perfect. Delicious sweet course choice . Considering the Covid restrictions we felt very welcome and safe and had a thoroughly enjoyable evening,which we’ll be repeating soon!
