Review on Boar's Head Hotel

Part-and-parcel of the Ripley Estate, which takes in the nearby castle and the village itself, the Boar's Head is judiciously overseen by its hereditary 'landlords' Sir Thomas and Lady Ingilby. The inn (an Elizabethan hostelry) was rebuilt from scratch during the 1830s and now incorporates a bar, bistro, restaurant and accommodation.

The restaurant itself is a marriage of old and new, with ancient portraits on deep-red walls, but food that is tune with today's trends. Three-course menus are priced according to the main course, and the choice might range from braised belly of rare-breed pork with black pudding ravioli and spring greens to butter-baked halibut with smoked haddock brandade, wilted lettuce and horseradish foam.

Start the ball rolling with langoustine pannacotta or a pressing of rabbit and foie gras, and conclude with iced praline parfait with banana milkshake and bitter chocolate sorbet or hot passion fruit soufflé. The auspicious, award-winning wine cellar is the owners' pride and joy: Sir Thomas has spent his time wisely, accumulating a vast but astute list spanning the globe.
