Blue Boar Restaurant offers contemporary British dining in the heart of Westminster. Head Chef Michael Riordan combines fresh, regional ingredients to deliver a mouth-watering menu that celebrates the very best of what each British season brings. Farm sourced succulent meats and freshly caught seafood from the Devon and Cornwall coastline feature on a menu that is as perfect for a light lunch as it is for a decadent dinner.



Private dining at Blue Boar is particularly special with two exceptional spaces, connected to the main restaurant by a floor-to-ceiling wine wall.



Located in Westminster, Blue Boar restaurant is a 1-minute walk from St. James’s Park Tube Station. Situated close to the Thames, Blue Boar Westminster is a 3-minute walk to Buckingham Palace.

Please be aware that only the bar menu is available on Sunday.

Private Dining

Set against the backdrop of the most powerful meeting arena in Britain, the Blue Boar’s private dining spaces are a major draw in a more discrete location. The restaurant offers two exclusive private dining rooms, both hidden behind our floor to ceiling wall of wine and completely closed off from

The food was superb - very tasty. I do think that £6.25 for a bottle of fizzy water is steep but that’s the only fault I could find. I will return.

They didn't have our booking and besides this they were not taking any bookings for the whole of August so I would like to know why we were allowed to make this reservation. It was a special occasion which was somewhat spoilt by this situation.

Can you please let me know why we were allowed to make this booking.

We came to restaurant to celebrate a special award. Although vaguely acknowledged by restaurant upon arrival it was never fully acknowledged.

The waiter was very sweet but young and not very knowledgeable about cut of beef or good value wines. He tried but had no staff backup.

The food was very good. The ambiance was terrific. It was quiet so people could dine and speak and hear one another. You could better publicize this restaurant as a +10 for quiet dining.

The waiter was very thoughtful and tried but was at the mercy of what appeared to be inadequate training.

The venue is nice and relaxed. Serving staff are pleasant but twice had to chase for drinks and it wasn’t busy. They then put me down as not attending when we did and lost my friends debit card. The burger didn’t taste great. Because of all the issues we didn’t pay. I’d think twice before going back although accept this could have been a one-off.

The place is very smart yet cosy, nice ambiance and decor.

Food was good - however I ordered the tofu salad and it came without any tofu! The waiter promptly removed it from the table and brought out another salad with tofu. It tasted great but perhaps it had a little more dressing than was needed. Other people in my party who ordered said the food was very good.

The service was good - our waiter was very nice - he did forget to put something through but apologised and promptly brought it out.

It is a little on the pricey side (£100+ for 4 people with no alcohol) but I would come here again. Recommend for business lunches.

Good food And nice setting but unfortunately the service was not good, and when we asked to have the service charge off the bill, it became a very big deal! They even tried to add the bottle of wine that they gave us incorrectly after we asked for the service charge to be off the bill even though it wasn’t on the original bill!

We recently visited London from the United States. Our dinner at the Blue Boar was exceptional. The food was the first rate. The service was even better. Voltan and Luke are to be highly commended for their level of professionalism.

Really really good.... the service was flawless, polite and attentive without being OTT, the food was great everything was not only delicious but beautifully presented and the venue is lovely - low lit with leather booths.
The cocktails were great too, really delicious, beautifully made and reasonably priced... they also had a couple of themed cocktails too (brexit based!) which was fun.

We were in the restaurant not the bar, and I think the only 2 possible negative things I can say were because there weren’t many people in the restaurant 1) there wasn’t much atmosphere and
2) the service was almost too quick, just a few minutes between getting our cocktails and then starter and then again between starter and main...
... but still better too quick than too slow!

Would absolutely go back!

Whilst the food here is tasty there is no atmosphere and the staff were more interested in chatting amongst themselves than serving to few customers they had.

The bill was outrageous for what this is too.

I thought the food was great, but it felt like the waiters were trying to get us out pretty much as soon as we had finished our meal (we didn't order dessert or coffee). I would understand if the restaurant was busy, but it wasn't even half full. I would have liked to have had a relaxed post meal chat with my friend. I doubt I would go here again to be honest as I really dislike being rushed through a meal.
