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.

We had a lovely evening. The food was excellent and the staff were lovely. It’s really nice inside, and the bar is really cosy with a warm atmosphere. Having said that it was a chilly night! The car park is behind the pub and it’s easy to find. I came straight from work on a Thursday evening and met a friend in the pub. There were lots of others there eating so that shows it must be good. I booked online which was very easy. I sure I will be going again but would definitely recommend for a quiet evening with a friend or partner.

A very warm and friendly welcome, first-class service, cheerful ambience in the plainly-but-tastefully decorated dining room, limited wine list with some interesting wines, food competently prepared and attractively presented but portions too large and prices on the high side. Overall, an agreeable evening, to be enjoyed now and again.

Really good food but service was a tad on the slow side. We will definitely be coming again though as the food eclipsed the small downside.

The new owners have very definitely set high standards for their cooking. Quality of the ingredients was excellent and very well cooked and presented. Portion sizes very good too! The vegetarian options are equally good, although as with most pubs/restaurants there could be a wider choice for these. We have enjoyed starters, main courses and desserts now on several occasions, so the Barrington Boar has again become our 'go to' pub for eating locally and it remains friendly and welcoming and a lovely place to visit. Thankyou.
