Went for lunch 23rd December. Oh dear... I booked a wheelchair friendly table, and we were placed at a regular table with my husband jammed in one side in his wheelchair. We eventually had to ask for a drink. We were told that the pizza oven was not at temperature, and the pizza chef had gone to help the main...

I couldn't fault the Blue Boar! Fabulous! We booked in for the New Year's Eve dinner and stayed for two nights. We ordered our dinner choice prior to arrival, there was a good choice of dishes and what we had was excellent! There was fizz on arrival at the dinning room, and the service was pleasant and dinner well served....

Had lunch there today, great service, good range of vegetarian options, they even know that not all cheese is vegetarian. Enjoyed my halloumi and mushroom burger. Recently refurbished. Staff were brilliant.,

Also one fault here, the waitress called us 'guys' i do not like that expression and i find it too familiar, she also assumed i was one of the party's mother and when it come to...

This is the third or fourth visit we have made to the Blue Boar. Every visit has been average and this latest visit after their refurb was no different. When we initially arrived we were ignored twice. When we were seated a very scripted service was offered. A bit over the top with wine descriptions and pairing with food advice,...

A group of us had Christmas Lunch here on Monday. There was a small delay with some of the food, but not long really considering the time of year. The roast turkey and extras were nicely done, and the Christmas pudding although fairly small was quite tasty. Louise and the chef did a great job looking after us. Crackers would...

We walked in on a very busy Sunday and quickly found a nice table for 6 in the main restaurant. Our waitress was very pleasant and helpful despite being run off her feet. After ordering we had to wait nearly an hour for the food, but this is no criticism as we could see that the kitchen and waiting staff...

Invited to a so called exclusive sneak peek evening after a recent refurbishment. We arrived at the allotted time and as anticipated the place was very busy. We were asked to go and get a drink at the bar whilst our table was sorted. Fine. I ordered a pint of real ale and a glass or sparkling mineral water. £7.75!...

We stayed here for the second of our visits to Wychwood Brewery and getogether, back in July. Fortunately we booked well in advance as this place is pretty much always fully booked. The room as usual was just fine, the breakfasts were superb. This is a great place to stay right in the centre of Witney.
