newish enough establishment, which looks the part however, I seriously wouldn't recommend this place to anyone wanting to dine in the Chipping Norton area. We made a booking for dinner just last Saturday night. It was extremely quiet which i thought was a bonus - good food and service - how wrong was I! We ordered a curry and cauliflower... More

We were tempted to go back to neighbouring pub but thought we'd give somewhere different a go. We were seated next to 2 members of staff who were eating and had to spend our whole dinner listening to them talking about their love lives. I am the first to say I have a foul mouth but I know there is... More

We enjoyed a meal & drinks here - my husband said his Lambs liver was one of the best he has ever had and my homemade Chicken, ham & leek pie was so tasty! Staff lovely and friendly, hope to be back when we visit again!

My wife and I ate here on Christmas Eve. I had the Blue Boar burger which was very tasty and my wife had the chicken Kiev which she really enjoyed too. I had apple and cranberry crumble for dessert which is the best crumble I have had in a pub ever. The crumble was lovely and crunchy.... it came straight... More

My sister lives in Chipping Norton and booked this restaurant for our get together for her birthday. There were just four of us and we all had a really nice time. On entering we were immediately impressed with the decor and the fact that every single member of staff that we passed while being taken through to our table smiled... More

Pleasant surroundings with a cozy atmosphere on a week day, complete with tastefully decorated Christmas Trees! The Service at the Bar was very slow considering how many staff were behind it on arrival...but the Restaurant service was better. The Menu choice was limited for myself personally as I do like to see 'smaller portion' options not being hungry enough to... More

Yes we had a big table but we had booked weeks ago and had not been asked to preorder. We waited 30 minutes for drinks and had to ask 3 times. The food took over an hour and a half to come out. When we complained, the manager came over shushed us (we were not shouting) and was very rude.... More
