The Blue Boar has a fantastic reputation for food from diners around the world.
Our kitchen team continues to serve up great quality food, both in the A`la carte restaurant and in the bar areas, which offer good old pub grubs. Our menus are all about fresh pub food, although we do add something differentand unique to encourage new tastes and experience.
We keep the traditional favourites on the menu - although chef is constantly trying to improve on their flavour and presentation.
The specials change on a weekly basis to reflect the finest, freshest produce available locally.
Please do not fill yourself up on the mains - you have to try our delicious homemade desserts. They have to be seen and tasted to be believed. (Not recommended for the waistline!!).
We serve breakfast, lunch and evening meal and also cater for family functions, business meetings and coach parties.

The younger members of staff were running around and were very polite when you got their attention, but over all the service was terrible. The Risotto was like rice pudding but the rest of the food was nice. We had to leave after 2 hours and had not even looked at the pudding menu - it was Fathers Day and they appeared surprised they were busy.

Staff are lovely and very attentive (it helps that the food is great too!). Sunday lunch is a must. I have even started using their accommodation for visitors to our office because I know they will be impressed by the restaurant for their overnight stay.

We have always been fully satisfied with Blue Boar evening meals but on this occasion we took friends to lunch. We can only give two stars for service as several items on the menu were unavailable: there was no sea bass or cheesecake. Tiramisu was listed on the lunch menu but we were told they didn't do that. What we ate was beautiful and it was the fact that items we chose were then pronounced 'unavailable' which was frustrating. We ordered coffee which didn't arrive and, by the time we realised it had been forgotten rather than just slow service, we had to leave to keep a late afternoon appointment. I have written an email to the Blue Boar explaining our disappointment.

Lovely restaurant and varied menu with choice of dishes from average prices to slightly more of a 'treat' bracket. Wine by the bottle was decent and not expensive. When we visited, there was a large group nearby who were quite loud, but I would imagine it would normally be more peaceful. Particularly liked the pace courses were served - many places fire your food out so quickly that you feel rushed and don't appreciate what you've had, at The Blue Boar we enjoyed an evening out, not just a meal.

I took the precaution to book a table for 6 on a Sunday afternoon. We were so glad we did. Beautiful gardens to sit in & well all ate outside. The pub was very very busy, but our food order was taken & there was no delay in the food. Lovely, hot & freshly prepared. Pleasant staff, a good time was had by us all. Thank you to all the staff working behind tbe scenes.

As we not familiar with the area thought we would try. It in a nice setting and it seemed popular as it was full. It was busy and we had a large party Saturday night so perhaps slow service was down to that. Had to get our own menus after waiting 15 minutes for someone to pay attention. One starter and two main choices not available. Then took a long time for mains to arrive and when they did they missed one main order so person had to sit whilst everyone else eat for 15 minutes waiting for it to be made. Excuse made into a joke but no real apology - the fish from fish and chips had swam away and needed to be recaught! A proper sorry would have gone down better. Mistakes happen l. Most of the party was ok with the quality of food Hopefully just a one off but sadly not best experience for us.

Great beef and freshly cooked vegies made an excellent meal. The dining room is a very comfy place to while away a couple of hours, the other areas of the pub are just as good. Will most definitely go again.

The staff were friendly and attentive and the Sunday roasts (we tried beef, lamb and turkey) were all delicious. Our plates could have been a little warmer and there was limited choice for the one pescatarian in our party (sea bass fillet) but the food tasted great and staff brought extra veg when asked and checked several times if we needed any sauces or anything else. Our pescatarian friend had visited the Blue Boar before and had chosen off the Main Menu then and she said there was more choice for her. This visit was on her recommendation, so she clearly enjoyed her last visit. Mel, our waitress, did mention (after the meal when we talked about it) that our friend could have chosen from the main menu had she asked to. Lesson learnt. We stayed 4 hours and felt comfortable to sit and chat all afternoon, ordering additional drinks after our meal. We look forward to our next visit.

This was not a great first impression. They then quickly organised a bar table for us which was absolutely fine, unfortunately they did not clear up the food that was on the floor from the previous diners. There was a sign positioned at the front of the bar advertising the flavoured gin selections on offer, when I queried the options with the barmaid she seemed a little lost at what these actually were. Our food overall was lovely (delicious seabass) except the onion bajis in the starter platter which were mostly burnt - see photo attached. I did mention this when the waitress cleared our table however she made no comment. Prices were higher than would be expected for what we had. The service was generally fine albeit slow.

The service was first rate but the food not good at all. When the mixed grill is sold saying rump steak that's what you expect not a 3mm thick piece of what I could only call sandwich steak. Oh and the gammon I have had thicker and better bacon chops! The only reason we did not complain was because we had a 50% off deal. I would not have paid £20 really £10 was pushing it. But the staff and general service was good.

So we were recommended The Blue Boar. So glad we went as the food was fantastic. It was quiet when we got there late but that was fine. The waiter was funny and entertaining and helped with our choices. A thoroughly enjoyable evening with friends.

The food was of low quality and even poorly presented. The evening was an anniversary occasion, we left earlier than we would have in the past, and was extraordinarily disappointing. I was reminded that a free bottle of house wine was available, we couldn’t be bothered to request it as it may be as bad as the food. I would have expected more from a cheap “lunchtime pub grub”, this menu was not cheap!!

The extensive menu made me initially doubtful re the chefs ability to maintain a quality with such a selection of dishes however my scepticism was unfounded and myself and my 3 guests meals were all of a very high and rare standard.On top of this the service was excellentI and could not be faulted. I could not recommend this restaurant highly enough and look forward to my next visit.

Also the wait was only relieved by the fact that we had lots to talk about not having seen one another for a while. This wasn't helped by the adjacent table of 6 ordering their food quite a while after us and yet they had theirs approximately 20 minutes before us. The member of staff did give us complimentary bread due to the hold up and put it down to a coach party, but I've been previously when a coach party has been present and this made no difference. I hope next time our experience will be much improved.

The food and service is consistently good and always feel satisfied with the whole experience. However on this occasion we had a groupon voucher to use - the restaurant was quite busy- we both had steaks which were cooked more than medium (as we had requested) but still edible and good flavour. The evening was enjoyed but felt on this occasion that it wasn't quite ticking all the boxs, hopefully it was just a blip but will not stop us doing further visits again soon.

The only down side was the lack of disabled toilets and disabled parking and it would have been impossible for someone in a wheelchair. That aside it is well worth popping in to The Blue Boar for a great dining experience

It has to be said however that the service although pleasant and efficient, is rather slow. It would seem that this may be because the kitchen is slow ( or understaffed ) rather than the serving staff
