Amazing Sunday lunch (we had beef roast and veggie roast). We eat at the Boar quite often and food is wonderful. Victoria always makes sure everyone has what they need.

This was our 3rd visit to the Barrington Boar this time with my Neice and her husband who was visiting us from Kent. I choose the roast beef, my partner and Neice choice the haunch of Venison and her husband the burger. We all followed with the sticky ginger cake. We all agreed the food was absolutely fantastic and will return again. Congratulations to Alasdair and Victoria on not only producing great food but a lovely warm and welcoming environment. Already looking forward to our next visit.

Thoroughly enjoyed our visit to The Barrington Boar. We had booked a large table but snow arriving overnight meant 8 of our guests were unable to get to Barrington so we were reduced to a table of only 4. However we were made very welcome and enjoyed a lovely meal.

Table for two on a quiet Wednesday evening. Risotto was amazing and the perfect size portion. The staff were friendly and welcoming. Would definitely like to revisit.

A really lovely pub with open wood burning fire and comfortable seating. One of the best mushroom soups I've ever had and excellent home made ice cream. Super service and very welcoming. The dining area was a little cold and the heating was immediate turned up when I asked. I really liked the old fashioned paper chain Christmas decorations - it felt homely and authentic which was perfect for our New Year break.

15 of us came for a Christmas meal. The food was exceptional and everyone enjoyed their meals. Surrounding were beautiful. Service was a bit slow but understandable due to the size of the party. The vegan options were great, you went above and beyond, thank you. Will definitely be coming again.

It’s great that the pub continues to offer great food. So tasty with fresh ingredients. Note: I ordered fish and chips but requested an alternative to the chips as I don’t eat potatoes ( I suggested a salad or alternative veg dish) but I did not get this . In the past when I’ve requested this it has not been an issue. Otherwise a great meal.
