Reasons for trip

If you are in centre of Carmarthen, for shopping or the cinema, visit the Boar’s Head Hotel for a superb lunch or evening meal. It is the first time we have had a meal here, so a wet, cold Saturday afternoon seemed like a good time to try out their menu. And we were not disappointed.

There are specials available, but we went for the main menu as a steak is usually a good indicator of the quality of food. An 8oz rump steak with the usual trimmings was £10.95, all presented and cooked really well, very tasty. As I am not good with bread, the 6oz burger with cheese and no bun was a worth a try. I have to say this is the best bun-less burger I have ever had! Still very moist and with an excellent rich cheesy sauce, this was an excellent choice and at £8.95 is very good value. Add the two glasses of house red wine at less than £4 each, and this was worth the total £27.80 bill.
It is a beautiful old building, lots of wooden panelling and separate little dining areas, with traditional hunting and riding scenes around the walls plus fascinating military memorabilia dotted about. They also provide accommodation, so the next time we are thinking of staying overnight in Carmarthen, this will be our first choice. (this visit was January 2018).
