Location: Billericay Road, Herongate, Essex
The Boars Head is a Chef & Brewer pub in Herongate Essex and with its outside garden backing onto a river/lake/pond really is a summer hot spot.
I have been here a few times before and always enjoyed the atmosphere and food so was looking forward to going out with MBA and another couple of friends so I had the chance to sample their trio of burgers.
MEAT - Was not cooked as requested but still had a nice moist texture throughout. The wild boar was new to me and was the star of the trio and the barbecue relish really complimented this well. Sadly the other two were quite tasteless and lacked seasoning.
TOPPINGS - None of the toppings adding anything here, the salad element was poor.
SIDES –Tasteless chips served with the burgers and not a great depth of other options.
This is a lovely run pub in a great spot and on a summers day or evening there are probably not many better places to be then at this riverside pub.
Next time I visit I will go for the wild boar burger and hopefully that can develop on the promise tasted here.
Overall Rating 4/10
