Went for food and drink. Pizza wasn't great at all - really didn't care for it. Burger had by my other half wasn't cared for either. Definitely not rushing back at all. Certainly not for the food, only reason would be for a quick pint!

Spotless as always, my replacement meal instead of full English, gammon steak with all the trimmings was a delight. Juicy tasty meat to savour served with a smile whilst enjoying a delicious pint of Guinness.

I would like to thank the boot and shoe for their excellent service and food. The landlord was particularly entertaining. The food was excellent and I recommend the lemon posset. Keep up the good work.
