A group of 4 of us recently (April) visited here on a Saturday evening for catchup. The staff were courteous, the food was of a high quality and the atmosphere warm and inviting. I have been here before and can confirm that the place maintains its high standards - I would certainly dine here again!

Visited the Boot Room last night with friends for a catch-up meal. Service was very good, atmosphere was pleasant and the food as always was exceptional.

I visited this restaurant for the first time yesterday with friends. From the minute we arrived we were made welcome. The food was very tasty, I had the salmon and I was very impressed. Will certainly visit again when back in Leicester.

The food was average pub food quality;adequate but not exciting.The diane sauce for the .steak tasted of nothing.and the chips tasted like leftovers. The service was good but .the staff were just efficient .and did'nt make us feel welcome..The desserts were very good and well presented. Overall our early evening meal experience was sadly dissapointing.

We have been to the Bootroom many times, but this last time will make us think twice before booking again. Front of house staff lacking, attention to detail missing. Starter portions were very small steak not cooked how my husband asked for it, sent it back and it came back the same. No one asked us how our meal was... More

Wouldn't go back to be fair, when you are paying £20 a main you want the service to be up there. Unfortunately, this isn't the case, with only 2 front of house staff (dressed in there own clothes) doing everything from drinks, coffee, wine service, clearing tables and serving food they just couldn't deliver the service you'd expect from a...

Nice place rather large and cold and not in the best place in the city centre, it wasn't busy and staff hanging around, the food was nice but pricey, good portions but very heavy on the stomach quite rich but that's just my opinion. Desserts were lovely and the wine went down well. Over all a nice evening with friends... More

I suppose we visit the Boot Room at least twice a month and often take our friends with us. It is a friendly, no nonsense place to share an hour or two with friends, whether at lunchtime or for an evening meal. They have plenty of offers, especially mid week, which we enjoy as, although there is a limited choice,... More
