The Wild Boar Inn

Set in the ancient beauty of the Gilpin Valley, with 72 acres of private woodland and a beautiful tarn, this traditional Inn takes its name from the local legend of Sir Richard de Gilpin who bravely fought and killed a ferocious wild boar close by.

However, its fame these days has much more to do with the warmest of welcomes and standard of service complemented by individually designed rooms and classic British menus using the best local seasonal ingredients. A highly commended wine list is complemented by a choice of over 70 of the finest international single malt whiskies and a range of traditional ales, including some now produced in our new microbrewery onsite. Guests can even have their own bottle of whisky or other spirits saved for their future visits!

Throughout the year there is always a great variety of events happening from regular whisky clubs to food smoking courses, which add an extra element to any visit.

Whether it’s the food, an exciting event, the woods and surrounding countryside, or the ambience and character of the Inn, come along and enjoy The Wild Boar next time you want to experience a great day out or a break with a difference.
