The Boar's Head is situated in a beautiful village and the pub itself looks very promising from the outside. But the interior has been ruined. The contemporary décor is well out of keeping with a traditional pub. It did have 5 real ales - Fuller's London Pride, West Berkshire Mister Chubbs, Loose Cannon Minion & Boar's Head Bitter. I was first in for the evening session and I was soon joined by one or two others. The young barman was friendly enough. But as the previous reviewer states, why spoil what was presumably a lovely pub?

Latest re-vamp has turned this into gastro-pub; smart bright interior and nothing like I recall from years ago. Pleasant, friendly staff and decent food, which isn't cheap, but the place seems popular - no doubt aided by the demise of rival nearby establishments. Real ale on hand pump, but this is more of a restauarant then a pub.

Six years on from my last review and I'm providing an opinion again as there have been a number of changes. The olde worlde village pub feel has gone sadly to be replaced by light pine reminscent of somene's living room. It's less gastro too - so the food is a lot less adventurous but it's cheaper and there were more punters in than in the past including a good selection of ales. Service was uber friendly so is it a change for the better? - on balance, probably not because of the havic wreaked on the decor. Still worth a stop though.

Called in here last Sunday. Nice interior village & surroundings are great for walking. Decent pint of Village Idiot from local White Horse brewery as it should be at £3:50 ish.
Food prices reflect its up-market feel - this is a pub aimed at well heeled locals not the window cleaner. We had some most agreeable home made sweet potato soup at £5:50 a pop - tadge over priced. Main meals look toppy at £14 a head level but that's their perogative.

All in all a decent pub apart from the agreed poor attitude of the bar staff who need to learn some manners & customer service. Shame as the landlord was a decent fella.

Very disappointing. It takes a lot to get my back up but this pub is well overpriced. We payed £7.50 for a tomato, basil & mozzarella salad that was not labeled as a starter, and it was 6 slices of supermarket mozerella, 6 cherry tomato halves and 2 basil leaves. RIP OFF!! Could not believe the nerve to charge such prices- I thought Burford Garden centre was pricey but at least you get a good meal for your pounds!!

Also the wasp problem was unbearable, we have a baby and sat indoors and in the space of an hour killed 7, using the newspapers they supplied of course!!

Steer clear unless you are on a diet and want to chuck your money away. This pub could be good, its a shame.
