I wasn’t exactly sure what to expect when our party of seven arrived at The Wild Boar Inn for a Fawlty Towers meets Murder Mystery evening on Friday! Yes, it was everything that has just come to mind … Manuel in full slapstick style, Sybil’s soul shivering shrieks, Polly lending a note of sanity to the madness, a murder, a few red herrings and of course, Basil’s bumptious buffoonery! All this, plus a chorus or two of operatic singing, a bowl of salad being let loose across the room, a mysterious German guest but ‘don’t mention the war’, a cleverly crafted plot to keep you guessing ‘who dunnit?’, champagne, canapés and a three-course meal from The Wild Boar Inn, Grill and Smokehouse.

Highlights from our Burns Night Celebration at The Wild Boar in 2012.
Our Next Burns Night Celebrations for 2013 are to be held on Wednesday 23rd January 2013
We begin the evening with a drinks reception followed by a 4 course dinner being served whilst the evening unfolds, including specialty steak and a wee dram of Macallan Whisky. Price: £35.00 per person. Time: 7.00pm.
We host Burns Night at The Wild boar to celebrate the life and poetry of the poet Robert Burns, author of many Scots poems. We cannot claim to have many Scottish links at the Inn, other than George on reception! Our very popular Whisky club often features many Scottish tipples and the Chef often looks to traditional Scottish cuisine for inspiration on the menu; plus it is an excuse to celebrate all these things we love!

My father, who recently retired, was looking for a hobby for this time of year when the weather makes playing golf a little more difficult. That was when I suggested another famous Scottish creation …whisky, and where better to begin our new pastime than at The Wild Boar Whisky Club.
There was a time when I didn’t much like the taste of whisky but that was probably because, as an ale drinker, I didn’t appreciated the huge variety of whisky available. Having recently attended two whisky clubs at The Wild Boar my point of view has been transformed.
