Signs are looking good at the Blue Boar in Witney

Signs are looking good at the Blue Boar in Witney After four months intensive restoration work costing 1.5 million, Witney's landmark coaching inn, will be opening its doors for business with a new name - on the morning of Friday 9th December.

Peter Borg-Neal, CEO of Oakman Inns, the new owners of the Listed coaching inn in Witney's historic Market Square is very excited: "We discovered in the property's deeds that it was known as The Blue Boar until at least 1803 - hence the inspiration behind the name change."

Peter added: "The Blue Boar's interior is looking amazing and everything is really coming together. There has been an enormous amount of work to do and our team has been working around the clock to meet the opening date. We're now in the final preparations for our opening on Friday with our new team undergoing training and familiarising themselves with all the various aspects of the refurbishment from bedrooms to bar, restaurant to rest rooms and cafe to kitchen."
