I have been going to the Boot for a number of years. The food is consistently excellent, the menu is changed regularly to reflect seasonal availability of ingredients. This is a place where I always take business clients as I know they will always find something that they want to eat and the staff are friendly and welcoming. Friends of... More

Visited here with my parents for dinner. My mum loves this place as its one of the few places she can find something to eat for her dietary requirements! Fantastic main meal, I had the lasagne. The main meals are more expensive than I would normally choose, however fairly priced for the size of the portions! My dad and myself... More

We were looking for a restaurant on a Sunday evening for a spur of the moment meal. I phoned 10 minutes before we arrived at 8 pm and we were told we were ok to arrive up to 9 pm. The staff were friendly and the service was excellent. The food was really good. Well worth a visit.

At first the restaurant was cold so they moved us into the bar area by the fire which we really appreciated. Good selection of meals to choose from varying in price. Service was attentive without being overbearing. We both really enjoyed our choices although I would have liked more sauce with my chicken. Overall good experience and I would go... More

We have enjoyed eating here previously but our recent visit disappointed us. The menu was very limited, the service was slow, despite the place being nearly empty, and the meal when it arrived was not that good. To cap the evening, they started cleaning up and preparing for the next day very early with lots of noisy clattering. I don't... More

I have eaten here 3 times now over a period of a year, and only went back reluctantly for the third time due to the highly priced mediocre food that is presented. I have just moved to the area, and was pleased to see a really lovely pub so local, but have been very disappointed with each visit. Everything is... More

Warm welcome on arrival by staff attentive but not overly for our family meal, there were 6 of us. Good choice on menu and my nephew was not really interested on the starters on the menu so they offered him an alternative of cheesy garlic bread which delighted him. Order was taken and short time later we were shown to... More

Visited The Boot a few weeks ago, the food was mediocre but passable as a half decent meal. The atmosphere wasn't brilliant though & it didn't really feel like a friendly place. The staff did their best to make us feel welcome but the locals are in a different league, which I haven't experienced before. This is why I won't... More
