Fish and chips on Friday should be dead easy and in fairness, the food wasn't that bad but the dreadful service due, I think to a complete lack of training of serving staff by management, made this an experience we will not repeat. A half-decent chef is completely let down by amateurish front of house and neither the restaurant's or... More

I tend to find that restaurant chains tend to vary greatly as the quality gets diluted so one could be good and another in a different area can be terrible I have eaten here several times and at one other of there's and all times the food was excellent and I'm quite fussy ( as you may have guessed) This...

Went here xmas eve for lunch. Initially looked good but were hugely disappointed when we had to wait 25 minutes between starter and main and with other tables around being served properly. Food was average - there is a huge tendency to cover ribs and chicken in mountains of sauce. Afraid we will not be going there again. Have been... More

We come here on xmas eve for a free drinks before going dinner. The place has a great atmosphere and the staff are very friendly. There is a private room you can reserve for functions as well. We will be going back to try the food soon as menu looked great.

We were A party of 7 inclusive of two toddlers who went for Sunday dinner and the service we received was shocking. We were seated in a corner booth which seated 6 with room at the end to fit one high chair comfortably with the second not even reaching the table. When the member of our group came in with... More

The menu choice and food quality is very good. I visited with a group from work and the atmosphere was very lively. The service was good and the cost per head was approx £27. The live acts were entertaining - the Freddie Mercury tribute had people up and dancing towards the end of the evening. My only warning would be... More

Went to the Blue Boar with family who wasn't from the area and they were completely blown away! From the moment you walk in you are greeted with such warmth. The food was outstanding and service was the best I have experienced. I am definitely going again very soon!

The BB is hands down one of my favourite pub/restaurants. The team who work there are all absolutely lovely. They create a very warm and inviting atmosphere. The menu has lots to choose from and their Sunday roasts are to die for. Huge Yorkshire puddings! I was recently at the BB with my boyfriend for his birthday and when it... More

Friendly staff and very busy bar & restaurant. Our third floor room was small with no A/C or elevator. This was a fun weekend to visit friends. Abridge is a very small village so named because it has a bridge.
