My wife and I spent a Sunday and a Monday night at The Blue Boar. We had very nice cocktails in the bar, and an excellent meal in the restaurant on the Sunday Night. Both breakfasts were superb also. A few reservations: Minor equipment failures with the room were reported, but during the time of our stay they were not... More

We did not stay in the hotel but came here for dinner on Saturday evening. Lovely atmosphere, very classy. The service was great, our waitress was friendly and attentive. The food came out quickly and was really delicious. We had bruschetta and giant prawns to start and the chicken shared dish for main. Very good value for money and will... More

We stayed here for 2 nights over a bank holiday weekend. On arrival, we were impressed with the look & feel of the hotel, although the manager seemed to be rushed off his feet! We had Room 3 which was overlooking the High Street and although small it was cosy, nicely decorated & clean. The room was also boiling so... More

Stayed for 1 night and had Room 4 which was overlooking the High street. Room was fine, bed was a little lumpy, but overall very nice and clean. Bathroom and shower was clean and good quality complimentary products. I'd probably ask for a room on the back in future as it was a little noisy at 6am with general traffic... More

Stayed here on a Sunday night. At no point throughout the stay would I say the service was excellent. Upon check in we were not informed of the early closure of the kitchen. So at 9.15 when we thought we'll have a nice relaxed meal in the bar, not possible as the kitchen had already closed. We were curtly told... More

Didn't know anything about Witney or the Blue Boar before going there but I was pleasantly surprised by the town and especially by the accommodation offered by the Blue Boar. From the helpful way in which my booking was made, the well appointed spacious rooms, comfortable bar (with good music!!), attentive service and freshly cooked breakfast, I can highly recommend...

We've just returned from our stay at the Blue Boar. Overall, we had a pleasant stay. One or two niggles.. As stated on previous posts, the annex rooms are very warm, even with the heating off we had to sleep with the window open. They obviously recognise that the rooms are too hot as there is a large free standing... More

I went in for drinks with friends on a saturday night. The boys wanted Guinness and had struggled to find it in the other pubs nearby. The bar is lovely, with smart decor and a nice atmosphere. It was busy but plenty of staff ensured no long waits for drinks. Not cheap for drinks but happy to pay for a... More
