Decided to go for a drive in order to find a new place to eat and came across The Boot. We found the food, staff and service very good and would have no hesitation in recommending this place to friends

We love The Boot as the food is amazing. We visited on a Saturday lunchtime and they were really busy but we were served quickly and with a smile by the waiting staff. The kedgeree is delicious and the smaller portion is plenty for lunch. You will not go wrong with the boot but it's always worth phoning as quite... More

Went as a group of four middle aged ladies. The service was friendly and efficient. Loved the fact it's all chalk boards and has a wide range of going home cooked meals. Yes you do have to wait....the trouble is we've become so used to microwaved or boil in the bag rubbish people don't appreciate home cooked things, personally I'd... More

We were looking for decent restaurants near Stoke Hammond in Buckinghamshire. The nearest is called The Three Locks but when I called they were already full to the brim. So, I tried the next nearest which is The Boot at Soulbury. This is more of a village pub than a restaurant. That is not to say the Restaurant side isn't... More

We eat here quite often and have never had a bad meal. The food is wonderfully homely. We as a family have several favourite dishes. For me the Kedgeree is superb as is their crumble! Very friendly staff. Pleased to have it so close to home.

Went to The Boot without booking Tuesday evening as it had been a lovely hot day and decided it was too hot to cook. The menu is written on boards in the bar and looked like a good choice. Nice bar and lovely old building. We sat in the garden and my husband and I both had the burger. Not... More

Since our village (Stewkley) can't get it's act together to produce a decent pub and restaurant we have started to frequent The Boot. A little on the pricey side but worth it as the food is always very good. Constantly a good atmosphere in here whether at lunch or dinner. 3 adults and 3 children all eating of the a... More

Visited here for an impromptu lunch on a Sunny Sunday in July. Expected so much, but delivered an average meal for what was just under £50 for two. Rang to book on advice that it could get busy, was told that they could "squeeze" us in if we could be there in 10 minutes. as we were only in a... More

Went for a meal recently - the food from the restaurant menu is just a little above pub food quality and pricey for what it is. It wasn't as good as the last time I went a couple of years ago. Sorry but I can't recommend The Boot.

The Boot has a nice restaurant and offers bar menu, specials and a la crate the food is pretty good, but the atmosphere can sometimes be a bit unwelcoming.
