Inner Banner

The Blue Boar in West Oxfordshire is home to our vibrant Cotswolds group.

Located in the market town of Witney on the edge of the Oxfordshire Cotswolds, The Blue Boar, formally a coaching Inn, is a boutique hotel and restaurant dating to the late 1700’s. Now independently owned by Oakman Inns the Blue Boar was previously known as The Marlborough in honour of the Duke (Blenheim Palace is nearby) for 200 years before being restored to it’s original name.

Opendoorz - Witney

The Cotswolds meetings are held on the first and third Wednesday of every month in the self-contained privacy of The Bosworth Suite which lends itself perfectly to our networking guest events. We reserve the first meeting of the month exclusively for our members creating a trusted, safe environment in which conversations around business challenges, issues and new ideas can occur. However, we’re delighted to welcome business professionals to join us at networking guest events on the third Wednesday of the month and meet our Cotswolds executive members and other invited guests. This is a great opportunity for guests to introduce themselves and their business to other business owners, make new contacts and connections as well as dive into good cake and coffee!

Choosing the right location is important to Opendoorz. An environment that is stylish, buzzy and vibrant creates the right atmosphere for building long term relationships that are not only valuable but a whole lot of fun! For professional business networking in Witney and the Cotswolds there’s no better place than the Blue Boar Hotel.

Coming to an Opendoorz networking guest event is an opportunity to rub shoulders with ambitious business owners, directors, partners and senior managers. In addition, there’s always something new to be learnt and business experiences to be shared, both during the meeting and in the bar afterwards over a chilled glass of wine or a beer!

And in the words of our Cotswolds members...

"Most of my clients are people moving into Oxfordshire and it is essential that I am able to recommended businesses and services to them that I personally know and trust. Opendoorz has provided me with the support and opportunity to do just that and also grow my business through some excellent introductions". Stephen Wolfenden – Director Country Home Search
