Alexander Kapp left this review about The Boar's Head

Stopped here for some food on the way to Fountains Abbey, having food in the bistro which was very good, plus a pint or two of the Black Sheep which was excellent

Old Boots left this review about Boars Head Hotel

Possibly the only pub in England with a Baronet's name over the door, the licence holder is Sir Thomas Ingilby, Bart, he lives in the castle next door to the hotel. The Boar's Head is the bar of a smart hotel in an elegant planned, or model village, halfway between Harrogate and Ripon. The bar is at the back of the hotel entered via the courtyard car park or through the Hotel reception. A long narrow room, the counter is down part of one side, the rest of the space is taken up with bistro style seating. Six hand pumps serving well kept Theakstons Best and Old Peculiar, Black Sheep Best and Golden Sheep, and Village White Boar. Range of kegs includes 1664, Becks Vier, Bulmers and Staropramen. The room is dominated at one end by Boris the Boar, there are some nice 18th and 19th century prints and caricatures, and some amusing cartoons of boars and hunting scenes drawn on the walls. Not the village local but a more than pleasant hotel bar.
