We had to have the Christmas menu because of the time of year: the food was very mediocre and presented as if it were in a canteen. We both had slow cooked beef which was dry and stodgy and was served with carrots and brussel sprouts which did a great impersonation of a school dinner. Very so so considering the... More

This was my... More

This if the fifth year running that I have taken 45 plus people to The Boot Room for our Christmas celebration. The food was the best yet and the service was excellent as always. Excellent value for Christmas lunch and the team at The Boot Room always cater to our needs. Thanks

Was a bit disappointed really, obviously shop bought chilli sauce with the main my friends starter could have come from Iceland. The sea bass was beautiful I have to say but they automatically added a service charge and only told us we didn't need to pay this when challenged.

A friend had recommended the Boot room to me, sadly what a disappointment! We had a table for 6 on the 4th December, one of the group had to cancel at the last moment due to being ill and we highlighted this to the waitress. On appearances the place looks pretty and nice. When we turned up it was quite... More

Went here with no previous knowledge of the restaurant and was pleasantly surprised. Food was perfect, went with Soup, Salmon Risotto and Fondant. There was a Celiac with our group and the gluten free options were excellent.

Very good staff service. Meals were enjoyed by everyone. Very extensive Menu which meant it was hard to decide our meal choices. My was a chicken base with lovely... More
