    Booked a Sunday lunch for Father's day. We'd heard good things about the restaurant. There was live music which was lovely but unfortunately it meant we couldn't hear each other speak so we ended up having to move to another part of the restaurant. Lunch was lovely. Can't fault the roast dinner and the staff were absolutely amazing, very accommodating when we added/took things away from our orders.

    Not a great menu, very limited and then some dishes weren't available. Very expensive for what it is. Can't say we will rush back. Staff were polite though.

    Had a fantastic evening we were a party of two. One 40 year old and one 70 year old. The place was Loveland clean and welcoming. Food was very good and cocktails were fantastic. Cocktails were half price which was good as we had quite a lot so due to price needed to be this price. Music was fantastic in the bar and the dj was great. Would recommend this place for an evening out and meal. Will definitely be going back especially with the cocktails at half price. Spoke to the manager who was welcoming and wanted to know about her customers experience which was great. This felt like a local country pub but with the class and quality of a fine dine restaurant. Already sorting out another night

    Was catching up with an old friend The venue is pretty and has a looks lovely - on closer inspection especially in the bathrooms it’s tatty and unloved - with a nasty smell! Food was distinctly average - the look and feel of this venue you would expect great gastro pub but it’s a very average menu delivered with minimal effort. Sticky packet sauces blobbed on top of undercooked salmon or overcooked ribs! Used to be a buzzin pub with good food. Needs to rerun to former standards before I’d return or recommend.

    Seafood salad - plenty of smoked salmo , prawns etc. Salad was fresh and varied light dressing not too strong to over power other flavours. Excellent service. Good value for money

    The food is always good, service is helpful but on this day, there were a large crowd of guy, making a lot of noise, taking all the chairs from the tables, so was hunt the chairs! Not to mention they were then joined by several very large motor bike who was revving their engines in the car park next to the conservatory where we were dining, fumes and noise was atrocious, we had family over from Holland so they were not impressed and neither were we, it spoilt what was usually a pleasant Sunday lunch, the bikes like that should be banned from speeding in the carpark

    Very dubious about how much of the food was actually cooked in the kitchen and not pre-prepared and heated up. Tasted ok but this was not a fresh cut of roast sirloin! Impressed with the young lad serving but clearly understaffed (as everywhere is at the moment)

    We had a really nice Sunday lunch 4 adults and 1 child Nice atmosphere good food I am never happy when a service charge is added automatically at 10%. So I asked to have it removed but was then questioned about the service.. It was OK but not worth £11.00. I happily paid 5%

    Very disappointing. Had really fond memories of this restaurant. Depends what you’re looking for but we were not looking for banging music. The starters were good but the mains were sadly awful. Really sorry to say this was a very poor experience.

    Food was fine but drinks service poor. Having ordered tomato juice and large and medium wine, 2 medium wines arrived. Later asked about tomato juice and was told it was out of stock! On the bill, there was a charge for an apple juice. Restaurant was not at all busy but our table position was not good and the supposed background music was overbearing. Not sure I will want to return in a hurry despite the good food.

    We held our Golf Society committee meeting at The Blue Boar whilst enjoying some food & drink. When we arrived we were greeted with a warm welcome, which set the evening up to be a good one. The staff were great & really friendly, Did not have to wait long once we placed our order & the food arrived in really quick time & it was delicious. Price wise really good not over priced & definitely worth every penny, will be returning with the Wife. Used Open-table to book this one & will use for returning visits whether it be with the committee of my wife.

    I visit the Blue Boar quite often and sometimes it is better than other times. Recently I have noticed that the food is over salted which for some customer, older especially, this is not a good thing due to various illnesses. Yesterday my friend had the Sunday roast. The vegetables were unedible as very very undercooked and she had to leave them aside. Didn't complain as she isn't the type of person to do so but rather would take the hit. My food was good but oversalted. On Tuesday my meal was very over salted and I do have high blood pressure. On the whole I love going there and the food is mostly good and very well presented.

    I visit the Blue Boar quite regularly for Saturday lunches with my girlfriends and am never disappointed. The menu is varied and last Saturday I had their Ribs cooked in Jack Daniels which were very tasty and plentiful. Highly recommended.
