Grill & Smokehouse at The Wild Boar

The Wild Boar itself is famous, historically for being the site where Sir Richard de Gilpin is said to have slain the last wild boar! And more present day for its classic British hearty menu with a strong emphasis on the very best seasonal local ingredients. The culmination of traditional décor and time-honoured ‘coaching inn’ ambience, warm welcome and friendly service, assures a home-from-home delight and a desire to linger! The new smokehouse and grill with open kitchen will only add to the atmosphere and inject a little theatre to the overall dining experience.
