A party of 5 all had roasts, on Sunday. Very nicely presented, tasted better! Good service and a nice atmosphere in the pub. Wholesome quality grub.

Having had a bad experience with another local pub, that I will not name on this review, I decided to try out the Boot with a couple of friends. I cannot fault the service or the food. Well worth it. At the previous pub I had visited with my parents, one of the locals actually recommended this place. Roast potatoes... More

This was one of the best roast dinners we've had in this area, everything was very flavoursome, the meat was cooked to perfection, lovely gravy and great variety of vegetables, the staff were very friendly and the pub had a nice cosy atmosphere.

We really enjoyed our meal at the boot inn. We were greeted with a friendly welcome and experienced excellent service all night. They do a very cheap pint as well!

We enjoyed a pre-booked luncheon which we found to be excellent throughout. The food and the cooking was superb,combined with good value indeed,but,above all,we were very taken with the two waiters who served us,both being extremely professional,efficient,courteous and polite. I am sure this restaurant is very proud of them!

We have eaten several times at the boot and the food is amazing. It's not the cheapest place to eat but for a treat or special occasion its perfect. Many different dishes to choose from and a variety of special fish dishes. Definitely one to visit.

Cold December evening in front of real log fire. Perfectly cooked scallops followed by sea bass with touch of ginger. Finish with home made apple crumble and custard. What's not to like? Much better food than we expected in this tiny riverside village.

Although we had been here before for Sunday lunch, it seems to get better every time. The beef is delicious and roast potatoes to die for - crispy and well cooked. Plenty of fresh veg. My husband had the vegetarian option which was also very good and came with roast potatoes, veg and even Yorkshire Pudding. Will be back there... More
