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.

Lin and I went there for lunch on Tuesday for the first time. Food was very good. I had a goat's cheese starter followed by a goat's cheese and chicken main course with sweet potato. Washed down with a couple of German beers. Plenty of atmosphere and Essex people. Staff friendly. Will be going back soon.

Came here with my husband for afternoon tea... We were welcomed by a polite and friendly member of staff at the reception. Sat down and was immediately offered tea which I must say was very nice. Next came the sandwiches and cakes. The sandwiches were exquisite. They were plentiful , well presented on a lovely stand where there was also... More

I visited the Blue Boar again last week with three friends. The afternoon champagne tea has noticeable improved. The scones were noticeably bigger, warm and delicious with a mountain of luscious clotted cream and jam. The small selection of cakes are a welcome addition to the tea. They have also increased to allocation of another one finger sandwich per person.... More

Went there with some friends and our little dog. The food was amazing. We sat outside in the sun, was very comfortable and relaxing! Went inside to order food and drink, the decor was very clean and very modern. We have decided to go back to eat inside sometime soon!! Would definitely recommend it!!
