Haven’t been for quite a while but it has got even better. There were five of us, we sat in a booth. Lovely atmosphere . Food was amazing. The staff couldn’t do enough for us. All were very kind going over and beyond.
Absolutely lovely and can’t wait to go again.

I was rather disappointed with dinner at Blue Boar. The outdoor table settings are nice. However for what you pay and expect, the food was below unsatisfactory. The chips were cold, I ordered the homemade jack daniels ribs which your expect to be mouth watering delicious but turned out to be extremely disappointing. Perhaps I ordered the wrong item off the menu. The service was exceptionally slow provided that the pub was not overly busy. I would expect a place like the Blue Boar to have outstanding food and service.

This was a very busy Friday evening so it was difficult at times to catch hold of a member of staff. Other than that this is a great restaurant!

I returned to The Blue Boer for my sisters birthday, something as a family we do often. Admittedly we have not frequented here in quite sometime. The place clearly has changed and now caters for the younger generation. As we were in the middle bank, on the other side of the kitchen, the right bank was taken up with young girls and boys who were excitable and kept banging the back of the seat, so if I was drinking at the wrong moment it spilt down my face. The left bank was taken with young men, who were so loud I could not talk or understand my sister who was sitting beside me. We were in the middle of our main course at this point. My sister reported this to one of your unmasked waitresses, who's response was very bolshy " what do you want me to do tell them to shut up and lose my job". Clearly you now cater for the younger generation and that is where you earn the most money.
To say that we are disappointed is an understatement. We decided not to have a dessert and pay the bill. As we are now aware of the type of establishment it has now become we will not frequent again. We talk with our feet.

Went on a Tuesday night for dinner. We had 3 courses but sadly when it came to our dessert (sticky toffee pudding) both of ours were burnt black at the bottom and were really dry. We ended up having to send them back unfortunately, I don’t know how this got unnoticed when served. We noticed how the two tables nearest us had also sent food back at some point. All our other food was nice and served really hot, the ambiance outside was lovely but overall the meal was nothing memorable and was disappointed by the dessert.

We booked a table for 7.30 on a Tuesday evening sitting outside. It was very pleasant. The only problem was that the kitchen stopped at 8.30 and we felt rushed to eat and leave. One of our party wanted a dessert and we were told that wasn’t possible as kitchen was closed! It was a shame really as the food was very nice and the vibe was enjoyable.

The service wasn’t great. We had to ask for drinks menus, to ask to order and they brought the food out at different times rather than waiting until the tables food was ready. They forgot my father in laws food twice (starter and main). Lots of staff inside by the bar but no waiter / waitresses waiting outside to see if we needed anything. No waiter / waitress seemed to have a deviated area to serve so we kept getting missed. Food was nice but service let it down

Did not feel safe as none of the waiting staff were wearing masks. We asked if we could a
have a table outside as there was hardly any ventilation, told there wasn’t any available even though 2 table were empty for the whole we were there. Service was bad and the service was poor.
