Quinno _ left this review about Blue Boar

Attractive building, almost Flemish in appearance with its fairly dramatic triangular apex roof. Knocked through with some old wood beams painted black and some grey wainscot, pretty bog-standard town centre boozer really. Three pumps with one ale on, a so-so Bombardier. Very friendly bar staff salvaged a point on what was otherwise a forgettable experience.

Komakino . left this review about The Blue Boar

Shut for a brief period of time, but now re-opened, it's hardly a destination venue, especially with the variety of establishments that remain in Abingdon's town centre. No real ale - of three handpumps, two had clips reversed with a third unclipped, so a bottle of Wychwood Hobgoblin it was. Brighter and bare-boarded from before, it's at least had a makeover, but in this current guise it's only here to tick if you're a completist.

Old Boots left this review about The Blue Boar

An old stone building with a rough cast rendered front, to the right is a venerable low ceilinged old pub with a tiled fireplace and beams, to the right at a higher level a modernised section, home to screens, machines and music. The little old bar has a big screen as well and a twig shrine by the fireplace. The neat old counter carries two pulls, cider on one and Brakspears Oxford Gold on the other , not a bad drink and a welcome change from the awful Morland's Original which is the default beer in Abingdon. There are two pub signs within the pub but none on the bracket outside. It has a beer garden at the back.
