My boyfriend and I visited The Boot Inn whilst on a weekend away at the nearby Fisherground Lodges. There was another pub nearer to where we were staying however going off reviews on here, we decided on The Boot! We were not disappointed! The Boot Inn is nestled in a quaint little Hamlet, lovely inside, really welcoming feel to the... More

I called in yesterday with a friend as we were mountain biking over from Wasdale Head. We were muddy and wet, but welcomed all the same by the friendly owners who arranged a spot by the open fire so we could dry off our clothes. We had an excellent pint of local beer and a snack that was served in... More

To echo a previous review "The Boot is back"! We have just returned from 5 days in Eskdale and would highly recommend the Boot Inn as the place to enjoy fantastic food (Thai curry made with fresh ingredients, not a jar in sight - so good I had it 2 nights in a row), good beer, and wonderful hospitality. I... More

We spent two nights at the pub and the breakfast was fantastic and the steak we had for dinner was really tasty and beautifully cooked.

We had a short break in between Xmas & New Year, it couldn't have been better. The Boot is back to it's best with excellent food, great real ale & a roaring fire. We couldn't have been made to feel more welcome & it was wonderful to see that the buzz has returned. Special mention to Clare who made a... More
