We stayed over at the blue boar last Friday as a last minute get away. The room was clean and spacious and the food was delicious; fair priced and homemade. The staff were also excellent and very welcoming. Would very much recommend.

Hey JessEdwards2215 Thanks for the review. We're delighted you enjoyed your last minute getaway - with the clean, spacious room. It's great to hear you enjoyed our locally sourced, homemade food too - something for everyone. We hope you'll be back again, perhaps as a not-so last minute getaway. Regards Giancarlo and The Blue Boar team

Went for lunch 23rd December. Oh dear... I booked a wheelchair friendly table, and we were placed at a regular table with my husband jammed in one side in his wheelchair. We eventually had to ask for a drink. We were told that the pizza oven was not at temperature, and the pizza chef had gone to help the main...

I couldn't fault the Blue Boar! Fabulous! We booked in for the New Year's Eve dinner and stayed for two nights. We ordered our dinner choice prior to arrival, there was a good choice of dishes and what we had was excellent! There was fizz on arrival at the dinning room, and the service was pleasant and dinner well served....

This is the third or fourth visit we have made to the Blue Boar. Every visit has been average and this latest visit after their refurb was no different. When we initially arrived we were ignored twice. When we were seated a very scripted service was offered. A bit over the top with wine descriptions and pairing with food advice,...
