It has been an amazingly busy first week and a half and we want to say a massive ‘thank you’ to all of you who have been able to make it up and see us so far. We really hope you have been able to enjoy the experience despite the restrictions we are having to work to. Thank you also for helping us work with these current rules as it is both for your own and our Team’s safety.
It has been busier than expected with a number of teething problems, which we are addressing. It has been lovely to see many folks from outside the village with many walkers stopping off to enjoy some food and drink.
There has been lots of positive comments about the food and our menu, and Martin, our new chef, has been working his socks off to deliver tasty dishes. We are assessing the menu and it will keep adapting over the next few weeks as we find the perfect balance.
A number of you have asked if we are doing roasts on Sunday and the answer is ‘yes’. We have a few ideas up our sleeve as we progress to make this an even more enjoyable option, but we are moving slowly to start with.

Great news, The Boot will be open from December 3rd through the whole of the Christmas period and we really look forward to seeing you. We hope you are able to join us at some point over the festive period as we all want to have a good time and forget 2020! Our Christmas menu on the Food page includes many seasonal and regular favourites plus sandwiches, a kids menu and a selection for each Sunday in December. A chance we hope for you to eat, drink and be merry!
Your help in making sure we have a full pub would be so appreciated. However, as you may be aware, we are in Tier 2 of the Government restrictions and so you can only book a table if having a meal with or without alcohol. If you make a booking but then need to cancel, please let us know straight away so that we can reallocate your table as soon as possible to someone else. Also due to the restrictions, you can only have members of your own household with you on your table.
Our normal opening hours will apply except on Christmas Day and Boxing Day when we will be open for just a few hours from midday for drinks and nibbles only! This is because the regulations change over the 5 day Christmas period. We will also be closing early evening on Christmas Eve so our staff can get home to their families.
We do have the capacity for companies to make a booking as long as you are using our facility for a business meeting up to 6 people. Please call us if you need any further advice on this on 01494 481499.
Thank you for your patience and understanding and we are sorry we cannot cater for our drinkers and friends get-togethers, but hopefully, things will be back to normal early-ish in 2021.
Best wishes for the festive season. Take care and stay safe.

We have some great things happening at The Boot over the next few weeks so we hope you can make it to at least one of these!
Beaujolais evening Thursday 19th November. This will be your chance to enjoy this lovely wine with a fantastic choice of French classic dishes. Look out for the menu. When booking you will be asked for your menu choice in advance as we will be ordering and preparing these dishes specially for this one night. A deposit will be required pre person on booking, but will be totally refundable if we are forced into lock down closure.
Pub grub night is Thursday 26th November again offering a selection of great pub style dishes. So far this night has proved to be immensely popular and so booking is encouraged early to make sure you have your seat!
Christmas Menu – already many of you are thinking about Christmas and we have designed a special menu for the festive period. Take a look in the ‘Our Food’ section to see what gets your taste buds excited! There will be a deposit charge on bookings as this is going to be a busy period and space is limited due to the current restrictions.
