Previously Head Chef at Michelin-starred pub The Harwood Arms, Sally Abé has recently found a new home overseeing the restaurants at the Conrad London St James hotel. One of those is The Blue Boar pub and it does a belting roast. The potted Cornish crab with cucumber jelly and the corned beef & mustard croquettes with slaw and pickles are both ‘must order’ starters. The main event comes with all the trimmings including a bowl of roasties, Yorkshire puds, veg and jugs of the best gravy we’ve had in any pub or restaurant – thick and tasty. Don’t miss the super creamy, cheesy cauliflower cheese side either; it’s intense but it’s well worth an order. If you can fit in a dessert, the sticky toffee pudding with ice cream is the one to go for before rolling out the door to St James Park.
