Wonderful meal both from fixed price menu and a la carte. Highlights were the cod and crab tortellini in lobster bisque and coconut panna cotta. Good wine selection. Attentive and professional service. Comfortable environment despite formality of the room. Very close to Westminster abbey.

A former inn that served the workers of Westminster for more than 600 years, Blue Boar Westminster in London now runs as an urbane steak house. Focusing on locally-sourced and quality British produce, it offers a refined selection of beef, reared in the Colne Valley and finished to perfection on the indoor charcoal-fired oven.

Head Chef Michael Riordan combines fresh, regional ingredients to deliver a mouth-watering menu that celebrates the very best of what each British season brings. Farm sourced succulent meats and freshly caught seafood from the Devon and Cornwall coastline feature on a menu that is as perfect for a light lunch as it is for a decadent dinner.

Private dining at Blue Boar is offered with 2 exceptional spaces, connected to the main restaurant by a floor-to-ceiling wine wall.

Located in Westminster, Blue Boar restaurant is a 1-minute walk from St. James’s Park Tube Station. Situated close to the Thames, Blue Boar Westminster is a 3-minute walk to Buckingham Palace.

    The front door appears to always be locked even though a menu board resides out front. Seeing patrons in the bar I knocked on the door for a good 10min while the bartender just watched. Walked all the way around the building before asking in the adjacent hotel if I could enter via there.

    The food was okay, our host was great. We went to the bar before the restaurant was open, hearing the arrogant bartender berate his staff in the manner he did almost made me want to leave the establishment entirely. No man should ever speak to a woman in such a way, let alone in a supposedly professional environment.

    The constant pressure via upsells was too much. If you need to inform me constantly that my meal is too small and that I should order more, perhaps there is an issue with your portion sizes and not my wallet?

    I'm glad that I have the habit of double checking receipts before pulling out the plastic, the additional charge of £38 for a bottle wine we didn't ask for or consume was a little much as was the excuse "we weren't sure to charge for that or not".

    The food was okay, however IMO a steak should never be a 3/8" thick from a quality restaurant, I can pan fry a steak like that at home for 1/10 the cost.

    Absolutely brilliant, booked the restaurant for my wife's birthday and could not fault anything and they made it extra special with complimentary Champagne when we sat down a platter of chocolates for dessert wishing her a happy birthday,
    Highly recommend
