This Wetherspoon pub takes its name from one of Billericay's old inns. The Blue Boar was a near neighbour of the pub which now bears its name.

In the early 1800s, three coaches a day stopped in High Street on their journey between Southend and London. The Rising Sun ran a daily horse-drawn service, leaving at 7am. Opposite the Rising Sun, and behind a blacksmith's shop, was the Half Moon beerhouse. It was thought that the Blue Boar stood on the site of 39 High Street, these premises, but now, number 49 is believed to mark the spot.
