Boar's Head Renovations

Old Mill Room Closed for Renovations

The historic Boar’s Head Resort kicked off 2018 with full renovations of its restaurant, bar, main entrance and lobby. The renovations began in February of 2018 and will extend through the spring of 2019. Keeping traditional elements intact, the upgrades will provide enhancements that will add modern character to the historic inn.

Here's Russ Cronberg, Boar's Head General Manager, at the turn of the year talking about the exciting 2019 that we have ahead of us.


More About the Renovations

The planned updates, designed by Johnson Studio at Cooper Carry of Atlanta, include a relocation of the main entrance and porte cochère. According to Russ Cronberg, Boar’s Head general manager, the new entrance will open into a completely reimagined lobby. “Our guests will walk into a totally transformed area filled with natural elements, bookshelves adorned with historic reference materials and updated furnishings, making it a truly unique gathering place,” he explained.

Along with the lobby and entrance renovations, Johnson Studio will transform the Old Mill Room restaurant. According to Shawn Jernigan, director of food and beverage, this new space will be a carefully curated mixture of old and new. “History will still run deep in this space as we’ll have increased natural lighting that will illuminate the existing 1834 wood beams that provide a focal point for the room.” The design includes seating for 200 guests and upgrades to the porch room, with a private dining area and flexible banquet space for larger gatherings. “The marquee element of this project will be a glass-backed bar that will enliven the main restaurant seating areas, giving the space an open and airy feel,” Jernigan added.

Complementing the physical changes to the restaurant will be an entirely new locally-inspired menu by Executive Chef Dale Ford, featuring dishes that evoke regional history with a modern twist. Chef Dale will even be growing his own leafy greens from a brand-new hydroponic garden - the first in North America - located in our Trout House just behind the Mill Room.
