The hotel offers traditional British dining with a creative twist.

Starters might include dishes such as scallops with cauliflower and bacon, or home-smoked Cornish mackerel, followed by burgers or steaks cooked in a charcoal-fired oven. The traditional British theme also applies to desserts, expect rice pudding and other favourites. Locally recognised as the hub of Westminster Village, the Blue Boar Bar (http://www.blueboarlondon.com/bar/) has an intimate, clubby feel with leather chesterfields, tartan cushions and plenty of cosy nooks made for enjoying night caps and good conversation. With locally brewed craft beers and ales, a fine selection of wines and classic British pub food, the bar is a brilliant place to take in the rich heritage of Westminster.
