We had dinner here last night. The appetizers,prosciutto and raw beet salad were both good. Entrees of roast beef, roast lamb and chicken were also good but the lamb though good did not taste like a roast. The sticky toffee pudding was excellent.

We stayed here as we were in the area and most 'chain hotels' which we normally use were full. The staff could not have been friendlier or more helpful. The room was on the top floor and facing the main road. It was a Thursday night and we were not disturbed by any noise at all. The room was hot... More

Have stayed at the Blue Boar a few times now and have always recommended people to stay there when visiting Witney. The rooms are all very nice with iPhone docking and modern decor. The restaurant is really good and the breakfast tremendous.

I stay here a lot, but this week was the worst I have had. It was 17 degrees outside, I walked into my room to find the window fully open and the room was red hot! The room was over 28-30 degrees! Absolutely boiling. So I had a choice, either keep the blind open for the air and be seen... More

This palace needs to think if it wants to be a Hotel, or a pub with rooms. Our room looked out on to the courtyard. The staff had no interest in watching what was going on, with from what I could hear someone climbing out of the men's toilets, walking across the flat roof and looking in on the women's,... More
