We here today (party of 4) and had the Sunday lunch menu. I can only say the food was wonderful, staff were attentive and friendly. The lamb special was delicious and the rest of my table had the roast meats and it looked and smelt amazing. We asked for extra roast potatoes and they came immediately. Can't wait to go... More

Six of us ate there last night. Food was excellent and good value for money. Service was very good. One of our party had a birthday and staff helpfully served the cake that we had provided and sang to her, much to her embarrassment. as the place was packed. Our only down comment was the awful parking. Not enough spaces

This pub is great for any time really, great for an evening meal, great for drinks, or lovely for Sunday / Saturday lunch. We went a couple of Saturday's ago and sat outside in the sunshine, food was great and good value for money. I can imagine it gets busy so probably good to book in advance

The blue boar was a lovely pub with a nice entrance and lovely food. I highly recommend this lovely pub. The Lamb shank was stunning and melted in your mouth. The service was very efficient and the staff were polite and pleasant. The chocolate brownie with ice cream was great and you really cannot fault home made desserts.

We love it here. Good food, polite service, nice decor, and always a nicely mixed age group. Always had lovely 3 courses. No complaints, except carpark could be bigger, as most times we have visited, it has been a squeeze. Nice building too, in a cute little place like Abridge :)

We came here for dinner on Good Friday. We had a lovely corner table, service was quick and efficient and the food was superb. I would definitely recommend the halloumi and vegetable skewers, it was fantastic. Very impressed, so we would definitely return.

Just returned from a fabulous afternoon tea at The Blue Boar Abridge. Thickly filled sandwiches of salmon, egg and cheese/tomato, warm freshly made scones, generous portions both of cream and jam, lemon posset, light choux pastries were all served by friendly and welcoming staff. We had a pot of tea and two cappuccinos complementary with our afternoon tea. Top ups... More

Decided to stop here for lunch on Saturday, whilst very empty when we arrived soon had a few more people for either just drink or food & drink. We had burger/chicken burger for lunch which were both very tasty and filling. Staff friendly and nothing too much trouble. Satisfied customer, look forward to our next visit in the not too... More

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...
