    The food and the venue is really nice but the service is very poor. Staff are stretched and if you are charging mid market prices, you expect better service,

    Food was decent. Ambiance was good. Table Service was terrible. Had to walk to the bar several times for drink refills for my family and I. Even tried to order food at the bar when our server had been missing for so long. Will not be returning, even though it is super convenient to our location.

    A very disjointed service. We ordered some starters one of the main dishes also arrived at the same time which we sent back. Food generally good drinks service very slow. Some of the bottled beers were not available as the fridge had been turned of.

    Lovely decor and furniture. While the service was friendly, it wasn’t very attentive. Both our table and the one next to us failed to receive ordered items. We were never offered more drinks, to look at the dessert menu etc. We would have liked to order desserts and coffees, but gave up in the end and went elsewhere. It was a shame because it has the feel of a high class establishment and there were plenty of staff members, but they seemed to want to avoid eye contact with customers!

    Their traditional Sunday roast is fantastic. I tried the roast pork which was delicious but had order envy with the beef. I wish I was here for a second Sunday to try it.

    It's a real shame that the service at the Blue Boar Pub is so bad. It's disorganised, chaotic, and not responsive in any way whatsoever. As a customer you feel forgotten (as its all table service). Hard to get served, let alone get someone to serve you. It's a shame as both the venue and food is great. Please sort your service out and you'll be fab!

    Blue Boar PubResponded on 31 May 2022Hi Marc, Thanks so much for your feedback. The last thing I want anyone in my pub to do is to feel forgotten. With the current recruitment crisis in hospitality, we've just employed a new team and training is our key aim. Hopefully, during your next visit, you'll see a huge improvement. Thanks so much and see you soon, Go well, George Dean.

    I was seated at a table that was not yet cleaned from the previous diners and waited for some time before it was cleaned, despite asking twice for it to be done - rather serve a drink at the bar before seating someone at a dirty table - not a great first impression! Thankfully the food and waiter service were fabulous!

    Blue Boar PubResponded on 31 May 2022Hi Leigh, I'm so sorry about the bad start but glad we saved it and created a fabulous experience for you! I look forward to welcoming you back to the pub soon! Go well, George Dean

    More of a bar than a pub, which is what we were expecting. The venue is tastefully decorated and is in a great central location. It's halfway between Westminster and St James Park tube stations (5-10 mins depending on how quickly you walk). Some tables around us ate dinner and from what we saw of their reactions, they were all very happy (it smelt great too). The waiting staff were knowledgeable and attentive so our visit was very easy. Friday night in Westminster so a little loud (expected) but it was easy enough to have a conversation. I probably wouldn't travel specifically to return to the Blue Boar but if I happened to be in the area I would certainly return.

    £60 for two sandwiches/small side of fries and non alcoholic drinks. Food was nice but it wasn’t service with a smile. Overpriced for what we had, mainly the drinks which are tiny bottles of coke/soft drinks all priced at £4.50. Gave dessert a miss as only 3 choices and opted for a hot chocolate which came in a teacup and wasn’t hot. Another £4.50 each! It then took us over 30 mins to get the bill and get someone to take our payment. This is part of the Conran hotel and prices reflect that. Go to the pub next door.

    Very calm and welcoming restaurant amid the hustle outside. Good range of food. Seemed understaffed when we were there. One person ordered a starter and main and the rest of us just mains and it all arrived at once! Staff were very nice and helpful but maybe rather new and inexperienced. I would still recommend as a very good place to meet friends.

    Good roast (on the pricey side) but needed more vegetables. Service was quite poor - if they were suffering from staff shortage issues this should have been made more apparent as we were often left waiting and had to constantly flag down a waitress. Nobody checked to ask us how our food was.
