A new hotel has just opened opposite St James Park tube station. It’s called the Intercontinental Westminster, and is very expensive, which is not surprising, given its location. It has a Blue Boar Smokehouse and Bar attached, featuring a restaurant that includes baby back ribs on its menu, and a rather pleasant bar that looks out onto Broadway.
The bar has a selection of good beers and does a small selection of food dishes which includes the house burger. The beer shown is actually a porter called Black Isle, and is very good with a slightly sweet edge. The rose wine is an acceptable Provence one, though I doubt it’s worth £8.50 for a 175mm glass. The beer is better value.
