About the Pub

Part of the Conrad Hotel in the former Queen Anne's Chambers, built in the early 20th century as offices available for short to mid-term rent. Previous tenants included the Brewers' Society 1909-17 (and other lobbyists especially during wartime) and the Treasury Solicitor. This is a modern Anglo-American lounge-style bar/restaurant featuring smoked pit BBQ dishes. A range of Fluck and Law-style figurines, Scarfe cartoons, political paintings and a Division Bell (the bar's within 8 minutes of the House of Commons) around the walls assert its position at the heart of political Westminster. Breakfast is available from 7am, and bar service from 11am. This smokehouse and bar can claim an ancient heritage as the Blue Boar's Head (aka the Blue Boar and the Boar's Head) was at the south end of King Street parallel to Parliament Street near to the junction with Bridge Street and dated back to at least the 14th century at the end of which it was acquired by Westminster Abbey. It was a substantial inn with, in 1479, 16 bedchambers with 27 beds, a large stable block, and any number of dining and private rooms. Oliver Cromwell and other adherents and supporters lived in King Street in 1650 when the pub was known for 'conspicuous political busy-bodies and agitators.' No such entertainment was visible or audible on your surveyor's visit to the 'new' Blue Boar. The pub was re-built in 1750 and by 1850 was owned by an Oxford college. This was all swept away with the redevelopment of the area in 1899 and the construction of some of the great offices of the empire, Parliament Square etc.

The bar, which leads to the vast hotel hidden at the back, is extremely well-appointed and a nice hostess will take you to your seat. Expect to pay for the privilege - a 12 1/2% service charge is added, even if you are just sitting at the bar. No real ale, but a range of Meantime keg beers is on offer.
