This is a warm and welcoming place with well trained staff and a good range of food and drink. It is not expensive. The food is ok but no better than average and there is competition nearby from other chains such as Bills and local providers such as the Holly Bush. Maybe needs an injection of something new.

The Blue Boar Hotel in Witney UK has some of the best food in Witney and the surrounding area. Nice decore and surroundings. The service could be a lot better however and a number of the serving staff appeared inexperienced and unsure of what to do

Service excellent. Lady who served our drinks and showed us to our table had a lovely welcoming manner. Food tasty. Pork belly delicious. Only criticism crackling was not hard crackling .... But we asked and they gave us crackling but was not freshly cooked, and cold. All in all good place.

Dined here early ish on a Thursday night. The bar service was very good and the food came out promptly. I had the Tapas Platter which at £15 was quite expensive for what it was, but was nice. The pub has a good atmosphere and would go there again.

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.
