Not enough staff on despite not being full. The fact they still had bookings available probably should have told us all we needed to know.
Bland burgers, soggy chips, cancelled second round of drinks after waiting over half an hour for them, staff wearing masks under their noses....

A creditable attempt has been made to create a covered outside dining area with overhead heaters. We were greeted immediately, shown to a table & drinks order taken. The food took long enough to come to have been properly prepared (lasagne done in an oven, not by microwave etc).
The main course was good enjoyable pub grub in ample quantity. The sweets were even better, really good creamy cheesecake and an, again properly cooked, apple crumble. The drinks were good and the service prompt & cheerful. All in all a good experience and we will return.

The setting was pub ambiance and very clean.The food was well presented and everything was hot and tasty .Being dog friendly makes it a good stopoff after walking in the area.☺☺

We always love going to the boars head. The food, service and atmosphere is lovely and cosy. You can pair your visit with a walk round Lyme park which is close by

Never been before but looked at reviews and decided to try for Sunday roast. Doesn’t look great from outside but was lovely inside, kids loved their menu and our roast was superb

Very nice meal and excellent Timothy Taylor beer. We booked through Open Table but the pub had no record of our booking even though we had received a confirmation. Fortunately they found is a table.

We took our very well behaved dogs but there were several dogs who were vocal at times and one was encouraged by the owner to play with one of our dogs. Staff were attentive and Sunday roast tasty. A bit busy for us so may go mid week next time.

Food was good pub food, I had a nut roast that was very good, lots of veg, even red cabbage. Service was good, staff were very attentive.
My only negative comment was that people coming into the pub didn’t abide to the request to stay by the table until approached by a staff member, they just queued by the bar! The staff were busy so didn’t always have time to get them seated quickly.

A real proper authentic public house where the staff make you feel at home.
It does not feel like a mast produced conveyer belt type pub like so many do these days.
It's a pleasure to eat /drink or just sit and relax.
10/10

Had loads of lovely meals here in the past but the food I had last time was dried up and presented poorly. It was only a steak pie with mash which you can’t really get wrong but it was! Staff were great as usual and it won’t stop me going again but definitely needs sorting out.

Excellent food and staff were very friendly and helpful. Food was a bit slow in coming out and they had ran out of a few things on the menu but it was a bank holiday Monday and very busy. Will be returning on a quieter day. Very dog friendly

The service was excellent as was the food. Just a bit concerned about a large party of at least 10 that were not socially distancing and were rather noisy.
