ROB Camra left this review about Boars Head Hotel

When I called in this pub all the curtains were closed even though it was light which didn't make it look very inviting. Had a roaring log fire going in the hearth, over the mantlepiece is a black and white photo of a young George Best. Huge TV screen just to the right of the fireplace. A game of dominoes going in the corner and a large pub cat sprawled across two stools. Pedigree, Banks's Bitter & Original plus Jennings Snecklifter on the bar. Had a pint of the Jennings which was very nice. So far so good. Tried to talk to a couple of locals and the landlord, got blanked. It was a bit of a strange place and whilst leaning on the bar I overheard one of the locals say to his mate "You need to be careful what you're saying tonight, there's strangers in". Very dodgy. I didn't have a second pint even though it was a good pint as it really wasn't very welcoming
