In theory, all Weatherspoon pubs should be the same, but they are not of course. It is all dependant on how motivated and efficient the staff are. The staff here are efficient, which makes the Blue Boar one of the better JDW pubs. I went there years ago and since then it has been refurbished. The ubiquitous carpeting has been replaced in the family area with functional slate tiles and the furnishings have a modern, continental feel. We went there with my elderly in laws and baby granddaughter and had pleasant, good value meals, served promptly. I had the steak and kidney pudding - a favourite of mine - which came with lovely plump, hot chips.
Okay, I know that this is a beer drinkers site, so:
They had a good selection of ales, including a lethal 7.3% beer called Dragon and Butcombe American Pale Ale as well as the ever present Ruddles. I had the Mauldon Silver Adder, which was very pleasant and good value at £2.15.
As others have said, the Blue Boar is one of the better Weatherspoon pubs.

OK, the upgraded rating has been earnt. This has to be one of JDW's best. The staff are now as efficient and friendly as one could reasonably expect of a concern this big. My only gripe (and it is apparently a common one amongst JDW customers countrywide) is that too much time is taken in the making and serving of coffee at the expense of the beer drinkers. A dedicated coffee station might be the answer with the staff member assigned to routine tidying or something when there is no call for the caffeine.

Above average JDW pub with Guest Ales going for 2.39 a pint.

This place continues to improve. From an admittedly low base it has ascended to something resembling a friendly, well run establishment. Whilst catering for a largely young clientele on Friday and Saturday evenings the older punter is certainly not discouraged from enjoying a decent beer at reasonable prices.
On my most recent visit there was a rather strange quite elderly looking man at the bar ordering a non=alcoholic ginger beer for himself and a coffee and brandy for his male companion. I thought this a little odd at 9.10am but I guess they found it odd that I was drinking my first pint of beer so early. Anyway, the staff of the Blue Boar are obviously a broad minded bunch as I noticed the ginger beer drinker slip over to the condiment area and fill his pockets with an assortment of sauces and seasonings- I'm sure the bar tender was aware but was able to turn a blind eye. Perhaps he felt sorry for the old boy who rather resembled a near destitute European farmer. The improvement in service is nearly enough to warrant a rating upgrade but I shall visit again in the new year before deciding on such a move.
