The Blue Boar on Castlegate is an historic pub in York that offers a fantastic food and drinks menu and has a gruesome history.
The Blue Boar was known as the Little John but it changed it's name after being re-opened after a closure a few years ago.
When Dick Turpin was executed in 1739 on Tyburn Gallows his body was displayed in this pub.There are many interesting fixtures and features in this pub and the downstairs area of the Blue Boar has an amazing interior that relates to Dick Turpin.
When we visited here we had been to a couple of amazing pub's and this pub was as good as all of the other pubs we visited'on entry we gave all our track and trace details and took our seat.
As it's table service only one of the staff took our order of a couple of glasses of Landlord ale from the Timothy Taylor's brewery'the beers were well served and well priced.The Blue Boar is a superb pub with bags of character and atmospheric and is well worth visiting.(This is my first review of the Blue Boar).
