The Blue Boar Inn
With comfortable, well-equipped accommodation, traditional charm and attractive original features, the Blue Boar represents the best of an old English country pub, where traditional values and atmosphere still survive.
The oldest parts of the inn date back to the early 1600s and records show that there has been an alehouse on this site since that time. The bar is filled with authentic original character and history, with pictures on the wall, original documentation and memorabilia complementing the charming open fire and original flagstones. For the past 5 centuries, the Blue Boar has been welcoming guests in to enjoy its warm and friendly ambience.
Experience the Blue Boarís historic past and stay in one of the attractive and well equipped en suite rooms. The rooms have all of the modern comforts and facilities you need, while many still retain impressive original features, such as wooden beams and stone walls.
The Blue Boar enjoys a great reputation for food from both customers and suppliers alike and the inn serves breakfast, lunch and evening meals.
The menus are all about proper pub food and the inn continues to offer the traditional favourites, although chef is constantly trying to improve on their flavour and presentation. The regular specials offer variety, with seasonal local produce, and game in particular, used to best effect. The specials change on a daily basis to reflect the finest, freshest produce available locally. The inn also offers a range of delicious home-made desserts, including banana crunch and chocolate mousse.
You can enjoy a refreshing pint of hand-pulled real ale in the bar, which always has 4 cask ales on, ready to be pulled.
The glass-covered well in the restaurant bar is some 35 feet deep and its pure water was once used in the brewing process. Today, the well is the home of a family of koi carp.
The Blue Boar has 13 attractive rooms, each with their own individual charm and unique character. Many of the rooms still retain many traditional characteristics and beautiful original features, such as wooden beams and stone walls. All of the rooms are currently undergoing a full refurbishment to update and modernise them, whilst carefully preserving these original features.
The Blue Boar is located in the village of Temple Grafton, in the heart of rural Warwickshire. The innís great location means it is well placed to enjoy all that Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwick and the North Cotswolds have to offer.
Temple Grafton itself is rumoured to be the place where William Shakespeare married Anne Hathaway. According to church records, William Shakespeare was married in Temple Grafton church in the year 1582 to one Ann Whateley. The name is thought to be a misspelling of Hathaway.
With the inn as a comfortable and relaxing base, you can explore the Vale of Evesham and Chipping Campden. Slightly further afield, Birmingham is within about 30 minutesí drive, with the NEC also approximately 30 minutes away by car.
