The Boars Head
The pleasant Boars Head offers everything that’s sought after in a local pub. Visitors are encouraged to make themselves at home in one of the snug dining areas and admire the beautiful interior, which showcases the pub’s 19th-century heritage. You’ll find a varied menu of beautifully cooked and carefully presented dishes at this welcoming and unassuming venue.
Here, diners can choose from a wide range of traditional dishes such as steaks, chicken dishes, curries and other familiar classics. My companion and I shared starters of tender crispy chicken strips and a tangy cranberry tart made with soft Brie. Then, our hearty main courses arrived. The New Yorker came as a perfectly cooked chicken breast served in rich, smoky barbecue sauce, while the mushroom and spinach lasagne was wholesome with creamy, rich sauce and a generous cheese topping. We rounded off our meal with a large slice of cheesecake and a crunchy Belgian waffle that hit the spot. Sunday lunches are also hugely popular with locals and are available at £14 per head for two courses.
Whilst this award-winning CAMRA pub offers a vast selection of real ale, visitors can also head to the newly refurbished conservatory to find the pristine coffee bar and sip luxurious lattes. The ambitious Boars Head is a firm favourite on Pontyclun’s dining scene, and provides an ideal spot for an evening pint or afternoon tea and slice of cake.
