We had a lovely lunch for my husbands birthday last Tuesday. We've eaten here several times and always found it to be good. Lovely by the stream, but you can't take your hot food down to the stream due to health and safety. However we...More

A little off the beaten track but worth a visit with many special fish dishes from lobster to local trout. I had the lasagna, which was okay, though not up to Italian restaurant standards, but plenty of salad and garlic bread. So much that we...More

First visit to this country pub/restaurant. Pleasantly decorated as you would expect from an English country pub. The menu was extensive and particularly featured a lot of fish on the specials board. My main course sounded great which was roast cod, samphire, new potatoes and...More

Had a round of drinks and some snacks between us. The chips especially were really good. The seating is a little claustrophobic but it is a nice countryside pub atmosphere. Since there aren't many other pubs nearby though the prices are a bit high.

Try the smoke trout for a starter, delicious! This inn never ceases to amaze me. The food is top notch. My main was their fish and chips, not as good as the first one I had, but still very tasty. Noticed that the staff are...More

Great family lunch today with friends. We all had amazing food, one meal came out very late though. The garden was spacious and never felt too busy, however there were two tables who let their dogs run around freely which kind of spoilt the tranquility...More

The Boot Inn is situated in the heart of the idyllic Test Valley village of Houghton in Hampshire. Warm atmosphere, supplemented by active wood-burners, exists in both the Restaurant and Bar. The property has recently benefited from a massive refurbishment and the garden, which fronts the River Test (England's most famous chalk stream), has been enhanced further by the addition of it's own kitchen and bar servery. The latter is open most afternoons and evenings, weather permitting.
