The Boot is a local pub offering great food, great service. We truly got a "taste" of English food in a traditional pub!

I can easily see how this pub has been given the certificate of excellence. It's a really lovely old world pub which would appeal to young and old alike. Old world it may be but this pub is so lovingly maintained and kept in pristine condition. It's spotlessly clean, down to the shine on the lovely little stained glass window... More

Friendly pub, great staff, good range of beers and cider and gastro pub food. Gem in the heart of Kings Cross. You can sit out and watch the world go by

We visited The Boot several times on our recent visit to London. Tucked a few blocks from Kings Cross/St Pancras, you will find a cosy local pub with delicious food and craft ale. Michelle was our wonderful bartender most evenings. She was very friendly and pours an honest drink. I believe children are welcome before 8pm. There are picnic tables... More

Proper pub and decent beer. Nothing fancy about the place just somewhere for a beer and chat to your mates. Just a few hundred yards from Kings Cross.

We used this pub during Euro 96 before or after arriving or departing St Pancras station. St Pancras has altered massively for the better in 20 yrs thankfully this pub hasn't significantly. It is still a nice traditional London boozer!

Went there with a big group and got terrible attitude from the staff which made us leave. Wouldn't recommend.

Exactly what a London pub should be. Very welcoming staff, lovely food (at a decent price), pool table and jukebox available which is an extremely rare thing in central London. Nothing like a poncey all bar one or anything of similar chartacer-void-ness. Top rating from me
