Squaremeal Review of Blue Boar ?

Smart, discreet and with all the visual trappings of a gentleman’s club, it’s easy to see why the Blue Boar remains popular among civil servants, but that’s not to say it’s old-fashioned or stuffy – far from it. The attentive and knowledgeable staff go out of their way to make guests feel welcome and this genuine warmth, coupled with the carefully-crafted and decidedly colourful menu made our experience one of sheer joy. Seasonal produce is key, so no matter which of three options you choose for each course, you can be sure it will be fresh and full of flavour. On our visit, we found the summer garden salad was as balanced in flavour as it was in presentation and perfectly complemented by the light, refreshing Perrier-Jouet Blanc de Blancs. The hake with asparagus, grelot onions and lemon tarragon butter was rich without being heavy, while the dark chocolate and mint flower pot was unashamedly decadent. Finish up with a glass of demi-sec and petits fours before leaving the tranquil surrounds for the hushed streets of St. James’s.

Fine dining venue with atmosphere as well as being quiet enough for business meetings...

Editor's pick I am a PA and often struggle to find fine dining venues with atmosphere as well as being quiet enough for business meetings. My boss is still raving about Blue Boar as the food and service were both excellent. Staff knowing to frequently check they were happy, but not annoyingly constantly interrupting. Service was speedy but not at the cost of delivering great food. Highly recommend anyone looking for elegant surroundings with a great menu and wine list to book into Blue Boar. A short...

Not blue, but a bit boring

by   platinum reviewer (62)

Sep 2014

I took one of my friends to the Blue Boar for a slightly late birthday lunch. She’s gluten intolerant so it was a great option as there are loads of choices, both main and dessert, she could eat without any concern. At 1pm on a Thursday afternoon the restaurant was almost empty – great for a nice quiet catch up chat, but it had zero atmosphere; no music, no view, no people watching etc., so a bit boring (boaring – sorry!). The room itself is perfectly decent and ideal for the Westminster setting....

    The Blue Boar restaurant is a family favourite of ours...Mr S and my dad go there for the ribs alone! I really recommend it for great British food that uses seasonal produce, farm-sourced meat and fish from the Devon and Cornwall coast. But as it was Sunday night, the restaurant was closed and Mr S and I headed down for a casual dinner at the bar.

    The bar has a rather lovely, relaxed and informal feel to it...
