Dating back to an ale house in the early 1600’s, The Blue Boar Inn is a charming old fashioned British pub, through and through.
Still retaining a rich history and a welcoming ambience only found in old pubs, The Blue Boar Inn is complete with memorabilia adorned walls and open fireplaces. A comfortable lounge area invites guests to settle down and savour some delectable pub food, most of which has been cooked with an exotic twist for that special dining experience.
Somewhat unorthodox for a pub, the bar menu serves a plethora of tapas style dishes; perfect for a nibble with the guys while grabbing a pint or two. The delightful finger foods include sautéed garlic king prawns, chorizo with red peppers, battered onion rings, onion bhajis and sautéed calamari strips, just to name a few.
Keeping in spirit with the sharing mentality are the platters, which provide a feast for the table. Options include the spicy Indian Platter, which comes with chicken tikka, tandoori chicken drumsticks, lamb kofta kebab and a garlic and coriander naan, as well as the bountiful Blue Boar Mixed Platter, a rich ensemble of hot and cold meats, smoked salmon, marinated mixed olives and grilled king prawns.
Those seeking something more simple, and just for themselves can find quick meals in the sandwiches and jacket potatoes. A myriad of mouth-watering fillings can make either a jacket potato, sandwich, baguette, wrap or bagel more than just a swift bite, with delicious variations like crispy bacon and melted brie, hand carved local ham, prawn Marie rose and grilled tomato focaccia.
For the pub veterans looking for a good ol’ satisfying meal can find bliss with one of the many grilled or pub favourite dishes. Traditionalists will adore the homemade steak and ale pie or the beer battered cod and chips, while those looking for something a tad more uncommon will be delighted by the internationally inspired tempura king prawns or the classic Spanish omelette.
The Blue Boar Inn is an excellent example of how the old should meet the new, with a classic setting yet a diverse and eclectic menu. There are seating areas outside for when the sun starts to shine, complete with an old well, which has been covered with glass that once provided fresh water to the ale house, yet now houses The Blue Boar Inn’s family of goldfish.
