I liked the atmosphere in this place on a weeknight at 8:45. Locals slowly drinking themselves silly, a pleasant bartender, and 80s music. The fish and chips were tasty and not very expensive, served with mushy peas, which I love. So I'd give it an unreserved positive, except...there IS a swastika on the wall, and I found that a bit...

We were staying just round the corner in Tavistock Place and spotted this pub en route back to our hotel, and decided to try it in the evening as we needed a) somewhere to eat and b) somewhere to watch the England - Uruguay game. Got there about an hour before kick off to find it virtually empty. We started... More

We went to the Boot for a pint after staying local on a Tuesday evening and reading the reviews. We went in and waited at the bar to get served and waited 7-8 mins and there was no one there so we walked out along with other people. The place seemed shoddy and uninteresting, had plenty of time to look... More

Very nice looking place, prices are good, and the atmosphere is friendly. Has some ties to Dickens apparently as well, which is interesting.

Stopped in here a while back while I was on my way to a show near Kings Cross. I had about 30 minutes to eat and I figured this would be a good place for a quick bite. Unfortunately that turned out not to be the case! I ordered some chicken curry which took forever to come out, and which... More

Stopped in for a pint on our first night. Local crowd, friendly bartender, and cheap drinks. Exactly what I was looking for. The bartender was great because she was able to give us lots of things to do and places to go while we were in town.

Visited pub for a drink and meal before catching the train from nearby St Pancras. Basic selection of pub food good quality at a reasonable price. Locals were friendly and felt at home. Good choice of beers and a pool table. Would recommend for nice pint and meal.

We discovered The Boot the evening before we were leaving. What a find! It is tucked away in a quiet neighborhood just a few blocks from Kings Cross and St Pancras. We walked in on a Tuesday night to find many locals and Tim OT strumming away at his guitar. The staff were very friendly and the food was good... More

This was another pub near our hotel. I really liked it because of the bar tender we had both times we were there. She was always vey pleasant, and seemed to enjoy talking to her patrons. I wish I could remember her name!! We didn't eat here, but I would still highly recommend it

Honestly, I probably wouldn't have visited this neighborhood pub except that I was looking for a launderette after a week in paris. Found one on google maps and with the boot was right next door it was just icing on the cake!!! Poured a nice pint, friendly people, exactly what one wants. Didn't have any food but saw a plate...
