The Blue Boar

Overlooking the market square in the historic town of Witney, The Blue Boar dates back to the 17th century. For 200 years, this Cotswold coaching inn bore the name of The Marlborough in honour of the Duke before its original name was restored when it reopened its doors in 2011. Following our extensive restoration, we now offer a 70-seat restaurant, bar area, function room, imposing courtyard and 20 boutique-style bedrooms.

Open from 7am Monday to Friday, and 8am on Saturday and Sunday, we serve a seasonal, Mediterranean-inspired menu in our elegant dining room with open kitchen. We use fresh produce and quality ingredients, traceable from farm to fork. Younger guests can choose from a variety of dishes on our bespoke children’s menu, whilst being entertained by the accompanying activity pack.

Our courtyard offers al fresco dining in comfortable surroundings, and an extensive and varied drinks menu can be found within our stylish bar. In addition to our wines, spirits and cocktails, we stock beers bought locally from Wychwood Brewery, as well as firm favourites from Fuller's. For a more private dining experience, our Bosworth Suite can be tailored to meet your needs, whether you’re celebrating a special occasion or planning a corporate lunch.

For an overnight stay, our 20 en-suite bedrooms have been sympathetically designed to reflect the uniqueness of the building. One of the many personal touches found in each of our rooms is a cosy 'Witney blanket', placed in celebration of the town’s history. We're also proud to sponsor Witney Rugby Club.
