I stayed in the annex again in July during the Pigeye Jackson 2013 UK Post and Pre re-rehab tour which I manage. To get away from Pigeye for all of the day is a great relief, but the annex is ideal since it's off the High Street yet a block away for easy access. It's relatively quiet and very roomy. To walk from the most gratifying pub in England after Pigeye the Horrible's karaoke performances to a quiet room with a bath en suite and plenty of room is ideal. Sue runs a superb pub with all of the excellent staff (Paul is an expert on American baseball!) and wonderful locals (many who sing so well) including the great karaoke comperes, Marion and Rob. Excellent. While the mattress in my room was a bit old but I find this to be true in many hotels and b and b's in England. Other than that, it was more than adequate for the price. It's so difficult to find quieter sleep even in rural parts of England these days and the annex does so well, especially for someone like me who has sleep difficulties anyway (especially having to put up with Pigeye). I dare anyone to find a better location and service for the price near Frome. If Pigeye survives another rehab and returns, I'll stay at the Blue Boar again. If you're not staying there, for any reason, at least do go to the pub. Great people, staff and karaoke.
