Meet the Team
The Blue Boar could not be the renowned establishment it is today without the ceaseless support of its wonderful staff.
From the owner, to the managers, to the bar, IT, and custodial staff, everybody pitches in to bring you an unforgettable Blue Boar experience.
In 2016 Kate Wilsdon-Craddock took over ownership of the Blue Boar Hotel and with it the ambitious project of refurbishing the establishment and restoring it to its former glory. Over a two year plan the hotel is being renovated and to date much progress has been made. The refurbishment of the bedrooms started in 2016 with a contemporary update whilst maintaining a sympathetic view to the original history and character of the building. The beer garden and the courtyard have been improved, the Blue Room has been created and both bars have been given a face lift. Work has started on the crown-jewel of the hotel, the 15th Century function room, The Long Room. As the old timbers are exposed, the oak paneled bar and Tudor fireplace are being constructed. The ultimate goal is to establish the Blue Boar Hotel as a popular events and wedding venue, with a marriage licence in place. The refurbishment so far has been rewarding, although challenging at times with various setbacks along the way. The staff and building team are dedicated to the project and are proud to be custodians of a beautiful old building which needs care and attention.
