Went to The Boot without booking Tuesday evening as it had been a lovely hot day and decided it was too hot to cook. The menu is written on boards in the bar and looked like a good choice. Nice bar and lovely old building. We sat in the garden and my husband and I both had the burger. Not... More

Since our village (Stewkley) can't get it's act together to produce a decent pub and restaurant we have started to frequent The Boot. A little on the pricey side but worth it as the food is always very good. Constantly a good atmosphere in here whether at lunch or dinner. 3 adults and 3 children all eating of the a... More

Visited here for an impromptu lunch on a Sunny Sunday in July. Expected so much, but delivered an average meal for what was just under £50 for two. Rang to book on advice that it could get busy, was told that they could "squeeze" us in if we could be there in 10 minutes. as we were only in a... More

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.
