I have read some recent reviews, a few of which have been negative. I found nothing negative about our visit today. Two families, eight people, had a delicious lunch, beautifully cooked and served by friendly staff. Well worth the miles travelled and I will willingly travel those miles again for a meal such as we had today. Well done the... More

A few minutes down the road from stone hedge . I was clean and the staff polite. The food was really good, and the prices fair. We had a group of five and no one had any complaints at all. Everything was delicious. Had Shepard beef and ale pie. Fluffy top pastry good tender beef .

Staying in a nearby campsite We took a walk in the afternoon past the pub and seen their board up with a list of entertainment on and decided to visit that evening. When we arrived we were informed that there was a private party on in the whole pub but if we wanted we could have a quick one. Unhappy... More

I am so sorry. I had put a sign up on the door but as you rightly say nothing on the A board. I did contact the managers of the campsite the week before the party to let them know what was going on that night as this is not a usual occurrence at the Boot and in fact the... More

Good beer, but we couldn't get food due to it being quiz night, so we walked to the next nearest and ate there.

We have as a family had 2 or 3 meals here a year over the past few years and have always enjoyed excellent food and value for money. The last visit the food wasn't so great but we assumed they were having an "off day" so said nothing. Today we arrived as a party of eight with a table booked... More

As I explained at the time of your visit, we had sold a lot of ploughman’s lunches that day and by the time that you ordered we had run out of the half baguettes that we usually serve, however the bread served to you was picked up fresh from the baker that morning and sliced by us in house.

Popped in for a Sunday lunch as we were passing through the area on our way home. Staff were welcoming and accommodating as we hadn't booked but that's where the pleasantries stopped. My roast was disappointing to say the least my beef while delicious and tender was 80% fat in two measly slices. Veg over cooked and roast potatoes hard... More

Thank you for posting your comments. I am really upset and disappointed that you did not mention any of this during your visit especially when you were table checked. When you came to the bar to buy a pack of snacks you jokingly made a remark that your daughter was “being fussy” but made no other comments. Had you mentioned... More

Lovely pub. Stopped there on a chance half way through a long walk. Though fully booked for lunch they found us a table. We only ordered sandwich and ploughman but all from local products and generous in size. The staff was very helpful and friendly and they welcome dogs. I would suggest to book for sit down meals as it... More

We haven't been to the Boot in several years but were looking forward to revisiting it. Disappointing, is all we can say. Menu looks scrumptious. Mains slightly pricey but not if superb quality. Children's menu looked a bit pricey - ditto. The menu was varied and wide ranging. Sausage and Mash. Sausages were somewhat bland and the skins quite tough.... More

The Boot Inn is a small country pub just a mile from the A303 and a few miles from Stonehenge we are located 7 miles from Salisbury in the pretty village of Berwick St James.
With an open fire in the winter months and a large garden for dining in the summer months the Boot is a great place to be come rain or shine.
We are family friendly and we welcome dogs so it is an ideal place to meet up with friends and family.
