Excellent food and service. Easy parking. A good choice of 'proper' pub food with no pretence - just good quality and well prepared and presented.

We called in for a lunchtime drink recently as we were visiting the area, the barmaid was very friendly and the rose wine was delicious and perfectly chilled. We did not eat this time but just had a drink after a nice walk.

The Blue Boar is a Traditional Country pub set in the Beautiful Village of Walsham-le-Willows. We served good quality, homemade food and all ingredients are sourced from suppliers within a 10 mile radius of the pub. The Blue Boar is a family run business and also our home so we make a special effort to ensure that people are made to feel welcome. We have a fantastic enclosed back garden with children's play area which is overlooked by the beautiful St Mary's Church. The Blue Boar is not a restaurant but it is a traditional, homely, village pub with a quality food offering ,open fires and low beams. Adam, Liz and their 2 children welcome you to the Blue Boar and are confident you will enjoy your visit.
