What People are Saying

“Great Job Done”

"What a fabulous job the Old Boot has done to work through this crazy time!

The changes & precautions were clear, the staff were friendly as always, the food was great as always - catering for our pescatarian and gluten free eaters. But the additional of a vast outdoor teepee to the garden added to the evening immensely."

“Fantastic food, fantastic venue”

"We had an excellent family dinner in what can only be described as the most beautiful yurt. I can highly recommend the chateaubriand, that was delicious as was the crispy squid. The kids enjoyed their dinner too We will definitely be visiting again."

“What a gem!”

"This was such a lucky (internet search) find. We had a glorious afternoon sat in the perfect pub garden while our children played and Rebecca was a brilliant host arranging afternoon tea and snacks for us. Huge portions, great value, beautiful spot. Seriously impressed. We will be back and heartily recommend to others."
