Blue Boar on the Menu for 20-20

One of Britain’s fastest growing independent hospitality companies, Oakman Inns and Restaurants, has appointed 20-20 Public Relations to handle the launch of their new Witney Hotel, Bar and Restaurant, The Blue Boar Inn.

A well known landmark site in Witney’s historic High Street which Oakman Inns acquired in mid 2010, the Blue Boar Inn, currently known as The Marlborough Hotel, will revert to its original 17th century name.

Expected to open at the end of November following a substantial renovation programme, Oakman Inns is expected to have invested around £3m in the project by the time it opens, and create some 50 new jobs in the area.

The 21 bedroom boutique hotel will be ideally situated for the large volume of tourist traffic to the Cotswolds, Blenheim, Oxfordshire and surrounding areas while the Bar and Restaurant will provide a mix of imaginative contemporary and traditional food in a comfortable setting at affordable prices.

Oakman Inns’ Chief Executive, Peter Borg Neal, said: “We are delighted to have hired 20-20 to handle our PR. Not only are they Oxfordshire-based and understand the local area, but their MD Nick Boyd has a broad experience of the hospitality industry having headed up restaurants including Hard Rock Cafe and The Ram Group.”

Nick Boyd said: “It is going to be a real pleasure to work with an entrepreneur like Peter. He has the flair, imagination and customer concern that is the hallmark of a real restaurateur. His plans for The Blue Boar Witney are very exciting and we’re much looking forward to welcoming the first guests in November.”
