For the last five years we have visited the The Boot as part of our Rugby League Challenge Cup Weekend. We are always made welcome (even if we are sometimes a bit noisy) and looking forward to the Pie and Mash and a good old pint of the black stuff. All in all,a typical London boozer with more than a... More

After arriving from the US, we were tired and hungry, so we stopped into the first pub we found. What a great surprise. We enjoyed dining with locals. Their beer was great, as was their food. They even had a few good vegetarian options!

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.

Neighborhood Profile
Snuggly nestled within Central London is academic and leafy Bloomsbury, an area that boasts walking distance access to many of London's most popular attractions. It is also home to some of Britain's most celebrated museums, including the must-see British Museum. Despite an understandable popularity with students, tourists and day trippers, vast sections of Bloomsbury retain a quiet, residential feel year round and throughout the week.
