We were returning to Bristol and stopped off here for dinner. The appearance of the pub is very appealing and so is the interior - which is just as well because the food is of a very poor quality and vastly overpriced. We both agreed our choices from the menu were both sub-standard and far from fresh and even an... More

The wife and I stumbled upon this little gem randomly. The guy behind the bar was charming and the food was gorgeous. Nice Inn with celebrity footwear artifacts on the walls. Will be returning!!!

Such a disappointing visit. Maybe we hit on a bad day but the food was less than ordinary and the prices very high. £14 for a very small Barnsley chop on a small heap of fried potatoes and a bitter tasting Bovril type gravy. Not what we expected. The staff were pleasant but I wouldn't be in a hurry to... More

Visited on steak night and it lived up to expectation. Food was superb and cooked perfectly. The bar has a lovely theme and service was very good. I highly recommend this pub.

Our party of 8 had dinner at The Boot as we were staying nearby, and thoroughly enjoyed it. Lovely interior décor, featuring lots of shoes/boots from famous people (mostly sports people) mounted on the walls, with their names and sometimes a hand-written letter next to each one. The pub had a good number of people dining there but seemed very... More

Visited with some friends on Easter Saturday after reading previous reviews. Very friendly staff and excellent food. I had the whole grilled sole which was cooked to perfection. The portions very generous, so can't really fault anything. Will definitely visit again.

Busy at the Boot on this day as you may expect but still provided great food and service. My elderly parents were given VIP treatment, offered smaller portions, comfy seats etc. If you are lucky, and we have been on a few occasions, you will get to meet the locals pictured here. Forgot to say, possibly the biggest Yorkshire puddings... More
