The New Year's Eve takeaway meal was awesome...exceeding the highest of expectations. Extremely complex but even I was able to follow their excellent prep, cooking and serving instructions! Thank you to everyone at The Boar.

As always, the food at Barrington Boar is delicious and continues to develop. It has become my most ‘go to’ place whenever anyone comes for a visit and even when they don’t! The best roast beef dinner in the area. Keep doing what you’re doing!

The food was excellent and the staff went out of their way to make us feel welcome. Everything was done in a very COVID safe way. The food and drink rating would have been 5 stars had there been a choice of beers, but this was limited due to COVID, so no reflection on the Barrington Boar. Likewise, due to social distancing and limitations on numbers the atmosphere was not what it could have been, but again that is no reflection on the Barrington Boar, just a sign of the times. would definitely go again.

The evening was faultless. We were well hosted, looked after with discrete attentiveness and made to feel welcome and relaxed. After a cheeky apple juice, cleverly concealing ice cider and damson gin, the most wonderful dinner ensued. The pheasant suet pudding was indescribably good as was the duck. Both desserts were eaten with pleasure. This has been the most trying of years for all but you gave us the chance to enjoy a little Christmas cheer. Congratulations, a wonderful location with talented chef Al and his team well supported by Victoria and her waiting team. Merry Christmas.
