Venue Hire

The Blue Boar has a wealth of versatile rooms and spaces perfect for parties, events, meetings, weddings, wakes and club dinners. Please contact us to enquire as to rates and capacities.

The Blue Room

The newest addition to the bar, the Blue Room is a quirky, comfortable area where you enjoy a meal during the day and socialise around the open fire with drinks in the evening. With beautiful chandeliers, leather Chesterfield sofas, rustic tables and a huge bay window overlooking the picturesque Maldon High Street, the Blue Room is suitably snug at night when illuminated with candles. Also home to Bruce the Boar, this room is available to hire for small functions, parties or meetings.

Capacity: 30-50

The Long Room

Located above the bars, our renowned baronial Long Room has seen centuries of parties, performances and important meetings. With an upward capacity of 80 people, the room is fully equipped for large parties, events and wedding receptions. The Long Room is currently being refurbished, with progress already underway in restoring the space to its former splendour.  The 15th Century beams are now fully exposed with work starting on building a new oak panelled bar and comfortable seating area, constructing a Tudor bricked fireplace and laying a wooden floor. In time the Long Room will be licensed for marriage ceremonies, so that weddings can be booked in a truly impressive space steeped in history. The Long Room will be available to hire from the end of May. Please contact Kate at the Blue Boar for further information.

Capacity: 80+
