4 reviews of The Boot in English
It's how Gastro pubs should be.
The snug of the old world blended with the cool lagers of 2010.
Food is the right side of both "classy" and "pricey" - and the service friendly if not expert.
Worth a visit and a retun visit.
It’s about 12 months since my wife and I visited. I have to say we have always enjoyed the place, and the food. I think it was a Whitbread “Out and Out” previously, and the food was exceptional and the service impeccable. The red wine was always served at the right temperature. Since the change I have notice very slight changes. The staff don’t seem to be as well trained, but pleasant none the less. The food has been fine too. I am glad they have reinstated being able to book rather than turn up on speck. I can’t comment on the beer, I tend to drink wine. I hope that their standards haven’t declined.
Returned on 17/7/09 - Hadn’t booked, but was able to get a table for four, but only two of us so that was good.
I can’t fault the food. I think somethings are a bit pricey. The chicken on skewers (£4.75). They failed with no French mustard, and my wife had stilton with her ploughman’s instead of chedder, but she likes stilton.
My mixed grill was just about right for my appetite, but again I think it was a bit pricey.
The Boot is a true gastro pub in the good sense of the phrase. Half of this wonderful, character-filled building is a restaurant and the other half, the bar. The building itself is heavily beamed in light oak. The ceiling is vaulted in the restaurant and gives the whole place a cosy yet classy air. The furnishings and lighting are tasteful, modern and traditional all at the same time. The menu is varied and balanced. The food cooked and prepared beautifully. Through at the bar - it’s a cosy pub atmosphere that’s great in summer or winter. Try it – I think you’ll love it.
