Went for a meal recently - the food from the restaurant menu is just a little above pub food quality and pricey for what it is. It wasn't as good as the last time I went a couple of years ago. Sorry but I can't recommend The Boot.

The Boot has a nice restaurant and offers bar menu, specials and a la crate the food is pretty good, but the atmosphere can sometimes be a bit unwelcoming.

Out and about in Buckinghamshire on the way back from Woburn Abbey (another review) to our hotel ( Horwood House ) fancied some light refreshments and stumbled across The Boot..... The outside doesn't do the place justice, what a pleasant place to have a drink, the staff were very friendly. The place was reasonably quite when we first arrived but... More

Decided to have a family evening. There were ten of us, including four children. The super staff could not have been more kind & helpful.

We ended up at the Boot on a reasonably short notice Saturday night booking and were delighted with the small cosy and beautifully kept dining room. The food was Gastropub fayre but was of much better quality and without the pretentions that can sometimes dog similar rural pubs. The salmon and crab fish cakes were beautifully cooked and while I... More

We met with friends and arrived slightly early. Staff were very welcoming and friendly. They immediately set up a tab for us behind the bar. We were shown to the table and left to view the menus on the blackboard ( which were kindly brought over to the table) Our friends arrived and were shown to our table. The atmosphere... More

Really enjoyed lunch. Will definitely be back for dinner. Our visit on May Day was very quiet but this is likely due to location as there was a lot on in town that day.

This is a regular haunt as we really like the friendly staff here and the atmosphere is relaxed. But the prices have crept up to the point where we're considering another venue. The food's nice but £13.50 for ham, egg and chips in a pub is too steep. They seem to have taken a lot of pub faves off the... More

very expensive. Food was slow in arriving which was strange as we were the only people dining there that evening. Staff not very attentive and seemed to forget we were there.

The staff were great and very attentive.they managed to find us a table even though we hadn't booked and considering it was Valentine's Day. The Sunday roast lamb we had was fantastic we couldn't fault it. We... More
