Thanks again for absolutely everything, we were beyond impressed by the wild boar, everyone commented on how amazing it was how the room changed from ceremony room, to restaurant to gig! Unbelievable so thanks to everyone involved. Food was amazing and beer was great obviously. Your organisation was absolutely seamless and I would recommend the boar in a flash.

Thank you!

Hi Jeanette, I just wanted to thank you and your team for doing such a great job. Everything was perfect and worked so well, I loved the decoration and how everything ran. We’d like to thank you for helping us with everything and being so accommodating, it made organising it so much easier. Please thank Emma Sanders for starting us off with everything and also Emma on reception for helping us on the Thursday night, as well as the waiters and waitresses for being so kind and helpful. We really can’t thank you enough, it was a brilliant day! Thank you again and I’m sure we will see you again. Kind regards The new Mr & Mrs Brookling

Good afternoon to The WILD BOAR TEAM, Especially Emma and Jeanette. Exactly one year age last weekend, we had our wedding in the wild boar hotel, thanks to the guidance and friendship shown by Emma and Jeanette, it was a marvellous occasion, from a Friday night meal for twelve, (food is amazing) through to clay pigeon shooting and of course a wonderful wedding, we even had a casino to round the night of (I am sure Jeanette remembers it well). So you could only imagine our surprise when back in December 2016 we received an invitation from the team, asking if they could help us celebrate our first wedding anniversary. The offer was a night’s bed and breakfast, with an evening meal too, WOW as my new wife screamed…. We of course accepted this, as this is our favourite place to visit. Fast forwards to last weekend , when we spent our first anniversary back at the place we got married, only to be welcomed back like friends of the family , we had a fantastic night with you, as always is the case, what hospitality and kindness shown by all the staff. We just want to say THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts, we believe that in this day and age, for any organisation to be able to do what you have done then Kudos to the big boss. We will of course be seeing you soon and recommending you to one and all, as we have been for over a year now. Once again THANK YOU Very best wishes and kind regards Mr and Mrs Butterfield Jackie and Andy.

The most magical and amazing day of our lives!

We would like to say a massive thank you to Emma and the team for making our wedding the most wonderful day and everything that we hoped our day would be. Having been to another wedding at the Wild Boar we knew that was where we wanted to get married and it did not disappoint. We were proud to bring all of our friends and family there as we knew they would love it as much as we do, and they did. The staff are wonderful, the food is amazing and it is such a beautiful setting to get married. All of our guests had nothing but positive comments to make, particularly about the staff, the food and the rooms. Emma's help and guidance was invaluable and the day went so smoothly under her guidance. We highly recommend the Wild Boar as a wedding venue! Many thanks again Rachael and Adam xxx

And rooms and bar area are dog friendly - perfect

Had our wedding here and subsequently stayed here on our 1 year anniversary. Emma the wedding planner was the best and most organised person we dealt with during our planning. She made the process super easy and was pleased to accept all requests. The venue was brilliant and a great time was had! The family loved it so much they even booked to stay at a later date! The food, atmosphere, rooms and staff are all great. We even did some clay shooting out the back in the forest. Thanks for another great day!

massive thanks to all the staff at the Wild Boar I
