This is my second visit in less than a month and I honestly thought it was going to be as good as it had been the last time. It wasn't. It was even better. I genuinely cannot remember eating a better meal in a restaurant. The fillet steak medallions were so good I could have eaten another plateful even though... More

This restaurant rates a mitchlin guide mention,the other comments are not inaccurate, however there is room for plenty improvement. 1. I think they need to move the 3 small tables from the entrance/bar area, because this gets very crowded and is not pleasent for the diners in our case we had a ladies bottom perched on our table while I...

Anniversary meal, never been before and pleased that we went. Reasonable priced, would like to see a more varied drinks menu but food menu had a good selection. Floor staff attentive.

The Bootroom appealed online and on tripadvisor so we decided to give it a try. Well we were not disappointed. Really nicely decorated. Modern, contemporary. The people were lovely and attentive. The food very nicely presented on very ht plates, for a very competitive price! What more could anyone want on a Friday night, in a city centre venue? We... More

Came in on St Patrick's Day to find that there was a discounted 3 course set menu. The risotto starter was cooked perfectly and fresh. The pie was lovely, came with a thick filling. Possibly bought in pastry though? Finally, the desert souffle was 10/10!! Couldn't fault! The service was also excellent! Well worth visiting this quaint place.

Been here a few times and the service and food are both good. I've had the steak a few times as I'm a steak lover and it is of very good quality in my opinion. There's a good chic of menu and the service is pretty good. Go for the CBA Tuesdays set menu but it give you a good... More

We wanted to go for a meal out on Saturday night and wanted to go somewhere new. My fiance suggested The Boot Room and after checking the menu online we booked. It was 7pm on Saturday and although it wasn't full, it was relatively busy as there was a big party at the back of the restaurant. The decor is... More

what a great venue for a restaurant. The industrial features add a nice touch to the feel of this restaurant and the greeting by staff on arrival enhances it further. On booking we were warned that service may be slow as there was a big party in. It wasn't slow, it was just right. Staff were attentive, polite and warm.... More
