We had dinner in the private dining room last night, to celebrate a special occasion and were extremely happy with everything. We have eaten at the blue boar several times for lunch and dinner and have never been disappointed. The food is presented with an eye for detail and the portions are generous, from the scallops to the lamb to the sea bass and to the imaginative and very tasty vegetarian dish. ( which is unusual to find anywhere else).
The private dining room was perfect for the nine of us and the staff made the evening go smoothly, with professionalism,friendly smiling faces and they even took time to entertain my two grandchildren.(even though it was a busy friday night). From the moment we were greeted to the moment we left, we all had a lovely evening. Great dinner,delicious food and excellent service. Would highly recommend a visit.

This is a good quality gastro-pub which serves excellent food in nice surroundings. The welcome was a pleasant surprise, given the non-existent front of house service at the nearby Miller and Carter. My steak was extremely well cooked and all accompanying side orders were great. There is a children's menu serving the usual stuff but there is enough on the main menu to attract the more seasoned child eater. Would recommend highly.

Hotel was for family visit, the staff were very helpful cant fault them. the room was very modern and clean but on the small side. Had everything you would need. Not suitable for disabled peopleWould use again but would ask for bigger room.

Having 4 brothers we always try to celebrate a birthday, the Blue Boar came recommended to us, so we booked the “special” table, a round table in our own room, as there are 10 of us its perfect.
The minimum fee for this table is £250 very good as it’s only £25 each. We all had a starter, mine was the whitebait, delicious except maybe too many, then the main, I had the liver & bacon, finished with ice cream.
We all agreed that the food was 1st class. But I must add the staff albeit on the young side are just so helpful, funny and very good at their job.
We went mid-week, we had to book a table, but I can see why a very busy restaurant.
One negative: Another restaurant that adds the 10% to the bill, one of my dis-likes but that is a personal thing. Book this restaurant with confidence, my next visit I’m going for the lamb shank, looked delicious
The final bill came to £36 per person
