The bar was very quiet and not much atmosphere although the staff were very pleasant which helped make the visit. The beef and beer pie was good in fact the visit was good overall

We booked here as a last minute weekend break with our son. We booked 2 rooms, a single and a double for 2 nights. The rooms were clean and comfortable but the main selling point for this place has to be the food, real ale and whisky! We arrived after being out on the fells on the Friday evening and... More

Absolutely blown away by this place. We were greeted with the warmest welcome and the service throughout the evening was exceptional. Lovely wine, but the real surprise was the food, starters were prepared with a focus on interesting flavour combos and the pie we had for mains was out of this world. The beef fell apart and was so tender,... More

A cold miserable Thursday night I really didn't want to drive far but I keep reading and hearing good reviews regarding this pub/restaurant. The wife and I arrived around 6 pm to find the pub quite quiet to be expected this time of year. We were greeted by a friendly women who asked where we would like to eat in... More

THe village of Boot is very picturesque, with lovely old mill. We had a spacious and very comfortable room, with great views.... More

Visited a couple of times for tasty stout and a warm by the log fire. However having seen the chunky chips being delivered we had to come back to sample. We were not disappointed and we also had a decent steak and an unusual chicken and leek suet pudding. All served with nice fresh veg. We got a warm welcome... More

I spent a long weekend in Boot in November with two friends. We ate dinner here twice. It clearly has a great chef. All the dishes we tried were absolutely top notch. The focus was clearly on top quality food really well cooked. It was noticeably in a different league than most pub grub restaurants. We ate once in the... More

Brook House Inn is set in thousands of acres of beautiful and unspoilt countryside, with fantastic walking access to some of the highest peaks in England. I chose to come here for the natural beauty and peace offered in the area, but my week-long break was made even more special by the wonderful hospitality I received at the inn. As... More

Stopped in whilst out walking.. Warm homely feel..Staff very friendly and willing to share knowledge on other pubs, restaurants in the area. Large array of malts at reasonable prices. Menu selection impressive. The kind of place where its easy to pass several hours without having to listen to annoying background TV. Would definately stop again to sample the awesome smelling...

Our imaginative menu, including vegetarian options and scrumptious puddings, is complemented by blackboard specials and a varied wine list. Delicious home-made food is available all day. Dining in our restaurant, bar or snug is always a pleasure. We serve real ales, treated on their journey from barrel to bar with tender loving care. These include Cumbria Legendary Ales Langdale, Hawkshead and a range of guest beers from Local Brewers such as Yates, Barngates and Ennerdale. We also have beers from many others brewers around the Country.Brook House Inn is one of the 3 hosts of the Boot Beer Festival, Boot Beer Festival is held in June every year and is one of the biggest beer festivals in the Lake District. Don't forget we also have 180 Malt Whiskies to try!
