I recently ate at the Blue Boar Smokehouse and really couldn't recommend it highly enough. The restaurant has quite cleverly managed to catch the London zeitgeist for classic American dishes but eschews the down at heel surroundings found elsewhere for a great room and attentive staff.
We had a mixture of ribs and pulled pork & lamb to start and I couldn't find fault if I'd wanted. My main of Veal steak could easily have fed 5 people and were I not such a glutton I might comment that they could reduce the portion size slightly but I fear they'll take notice and I'll return to find nouvelle cuisine portions so I shall be keeping quiet. Service was excellent and when our mains were delayed by approx. 10 minutes, a bottle of wine appeared in apology. A very well oiled restaurant team.
All in all a great addition to the area offering something genuinely different. Having recently found out that they do Sunday brunch with Bloody Mary's on tap, I intend to pop in when I have a suitably monstrous hangover and give them a thorough test.
