The Boars Head, Hampton Lucy Warwickshire

We pulled up in front of The Boars Head in the centre of the picturesque village of Hampton Lucy, small children outside hurdling rows of daffodils on the grass verge. It is a picture from Country Life.
There was a group of locals at the bar that filled the pub with a background noise of lively banter. Although the pub is slightly unsure of how much it wants to be a restaurant and how much it wants to be a pub, but importantly the beer was good in both quality and range on offer. It was easy to see why the Boars Head has been the local CAMRA branch pub of the year for the last 2 years.
The best beers that I had were an excellent pint of Timothy Taylor Landlord and a really malty Green King Mild.
I had a strong feeling of having picked the wrong meal after seeing the steak and ale pie arriving at the next table.
I had fish and chips, which was only remarkable for the rectangular shape of the fish. In a meal of unorthodox shapes the wife’s angus burger was star shaped. It wasn’t a bad dinner but there could have been a benefit in spending a bit less time on the shape and a bit more on the taste.
This did not stop me from leaving the pub with the feeling that I had a really enjoyable evening, and would definitely like to go back.
