A large group of us pre-booked and pre-ordered lunch here. All meals were good and a decent pint too. Very welcoming. Only issue was getting a response from them when organising - almost gave up and went elsewhere- what's the point having an answer machine or email if you ignore them!

I stayed 2 nights here in a very cosy room. Pine furnishings and a good sized bathroom with a shower but no bath. Flat screen TV and tea tray with a jar of cookies made it very homely. The restaurant food was good, salmon pate and beef stroganoff were both very tasty as was the marmalade bread and butter pudding....

Had the pleasure of staying here for 6 nights. The Blue Boar is definitely historic, lots wood beams, low doorways and creaky sloping floors and all the better for it. The bedrooms are comfy and well equipped, but be prepared to put up with a little noise from adjoining rooms. You can count on a very warm and friendly welcome...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Blue Boar Inn is a coaching inn dating from 1685. Bought in 2008 by us, James and Melinda, this listed building has been lovingly restored. The bar has a beamed ceiling and an inglenook fireplace which has a roaring fire on colder days. In the summer you can relax in the beer garden and hopefully enjoy the sunshine! The garden is fully enclosed and has swings & toys for the children. The restaurant can seat up to 50 diners and can be booked for parties and functions. Our food is locally sourced as much as possible, with our pork produced next door at "Perfick Pork", beef from Binham, crabs and mussels (when in season) from Brancaster to mention but a few! James is the chef and has worked at many well know restaurants in Norfolk as well as working in Australia, New Zealand and Bermuda. We have five en-suite bedrooms, and these have been tastefully and comfortably decorated, each with tea / coffee making facilities, free wifi, hairdryer and colour TV. Our aim is to make your stay as comfortable and relaxing as possible, so if there is anything we may have overlooked, please do not hesitate to ask, we will do our very best to accommodate you. ... more   less
