Westminster appears to be a bit of a food wasteland, sure we have the frankly excellent Cinnamon Club, but that can’t seriously be it. Or is all the money going into creating bird houses and the like instead?Perhaps that’s the hole the Blue Boar Smokehouse sought to fill, a restaurant situated inside the Intercontinental hotel by New Scotland Yard. While the idea of a smokehouse (messy, greasy, charred flesh) is a little incongruous with the stuffiness of Westminster, the decor is clearly taking its cues from politics-land and is reminiscent of a gentleman’s club, all heavy white tablecloths and acres of dark wood.We have to try and mess up our tablecloth a little and so an order of ribs is up for starters.

Situated in the Westminster Intercontinental Hotel and named after the Blue Boar’s Head, an inn that served the workers of Westminster for more than 600 years, the Blue Boar interior is all dark wood, leather banquettes and Anglo-American-style butchness. The bar boasts the odd clubby tartan tub chair and a secluded seating area full of Chesterfield sofas; while dramatic lighting, lamps with what appear to be vintage telescope tripod legs and a line of stylised metal boar’s heads along one wall complete the picture in the dining room. According to the blurb, the restaurant uses techniques perfected by American pit masters (charcoal ovens, slow cooking, smoking, rubs and marinades) and applies them to the best of British produce...

I was in a serious mood for ribs after a loooonggg week and knew that Blue Boar Smokehouse, a hotel restaurant in Pimlico that specialises in deep Southern American dishes, is particularly known for its spare ribs.
