Blackthorn _ left this review about The Boars Head

A quaint old pub conveniently situated just a few hundred yards from junction 1 of the M48. I assume it one time it was a row of cottages, but has now been put to much better use.

It’s surprisingly big inside with several different bars and a traditional “olde worlde” design, although perhaps not as quaint as some other examples around. There are exposed stone walls, a big old fireplace and a few copper pans and the like hanging around, but the rather tatty red (lino?) floor in the front bar spoils the look somewhat, and the modern quiz machine looks out of place. Similarly the small left hand bar could be described as a cosy snug, but the pile of high chairs stacked in the corner spoilt the effect. A selection of chunky wooden tables, including one made out of an old beer barrel completed the interior furnishings.

There was a decent looking “pub grub” menu with most of the mains being around the £8 mark, and a couple of specials chalked up on the board above the fireplace. There were also several different meals deals available, such as free deserts on Tuesdays, a free bottle of wine on Thursdays and selected mains being offered in a “2 for £12” deal. We didn’t try the food however, so can’t comment on the quality.

Staff seemed friendly enough, although an acknowledgement while I was stood at the bar waiting would have been good. There looked to be a good sized beer garden, although it was far too wet to try it on our visit. There is also a small patio area with a well.

Beers on tap were Ringwood Best, Pedigree and Hobgoblin. The solitary cider was Strongbow, unfortunately.
