Description: "The Boot Inn is a very popular eaterie in this thriving village. You are likely to see married couples celebrating whatever they choose with a bottle of pop, as well as younger couples on early impress-me dates. The restaurant itself is beautiful, light and airy, decorated very simply with great sophistication. The crowd is comfortable and chatty. The Pacific Rim/Mediterranean menu is confident and inventive. What's cooking? For starters, try the asparagus spears with pancetta and cherry tomato salad, or the speared tuna nicoise. For mains, you could have the straight forward ribeye steak au poivre with chargrilled tomato and frites, or a complex dish like the spatchcock poussin with lemon, marsala, and rosemary and whipped potato. Very strong wine list."

Arriving on a freezing cold day to find that the normal blazing fires were being cleaned was not a good start. The staff were attentive and helpful as ever and anxious to please. Having eaten at the Boot before we were initially disappointed to find that the set lunch menu was rather limited and we were chilly. However, the house wine was a good start ( a free glass with the set menu ) and everything changed when the food arrived.
The food at the Boot is excellent in every way. Our spirits lifted with each mouthful. Faultless. A request for an additional cheese platter brought a superb board that included oat cakes, grapes and chutney, just as one would wish. Even a simple dessert of waffles with ice cream and maple syrup was of rare quality.
For a sophisticated yet rustic ambience with marvellous food and friendly attentive staff the Boot is hard to beat.
I believe it is part of a Warwickshire group of similar country establishments. More investigation is justified.

“Perfect birthday meal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 20, 2013

The food was excellent, very well presented and everything that should have been hot, WAS hot.
The bottle of red wine at £23 was a little on the expensive side for us, but was also excellent and we felt it was worth it for a special occasion.
Staff were very friendly and helpful.

We ended up here after driving around trying to find somewhere to eat on a Saturday evening. We hadn't booked but they quickly accommodated us, food was really good, I had the slow cooked beef and my boyfriend had the venison, good portion sizes and good ambience/decor.

We were staying at The Stables whilst on business and they recommended this pub. So glad they did as the food and ambiance were fabulous. The staff were also very welcoming and friendly. We'll be back!
