Sitting in a picturesque location on a ridge overlooking the Thames, is Longworth's one and only public house - The Blue Boar. Benefiting from being under the same ownership for some 32 years, this Elizabethan hostelry serves local beer and sells wonderful food.

Like any country pub worth its salt, The Blue Boar offers a menu that is a major draw with locals and visitors alike. The starter menu features popular fish dishes such as skewered garlic king prawns served with garlic bread, aioli and a side salad, as well as prawn and avocado cocktail with Marie Rose sauce and bread and butter. The 'classic menu' consists of all the favourites people have come to know as signature Blue Boar dishes. These include Malaysian prawn or chicken curry, a homemade burger selection and special sticky barbecue pork ribs. Alternatively, the chef's special menu presents a good variety of different dishes, like oven-roasted Cajun cod with sautéed potatoes and ratatouille, all the way to rolled pork belly with mustard mash, vegetables and jus. The pudding menu has something to please everyone, and the proprietors urge customers to sample the homemade sticky toffee pudding with butterscotch sauce. This dish, they will assure you, is a real treat for the palate. To keep patrons always guessing, the menu changes seasonally to make use of available local produce. Lunchtimes are also very popular, and can range from a peaceful pint of local Brakspear, to a delicious midday meal. The Blue Boar manages to maintain a busy local trade, along with being a busy restaurant business, which gives the building a wonderful vibrant feel when all elements come together. Tending to all customers' needs is the lovely Louise Ferreira, who has managed The Blue Boar for seven years and leads a very friendly team of staff.

Situated close to Kingston Bagpuize, The Blue Boar at Longworth is an essential port of call for any food, beer or wine-lover
