After a walk over a windy fell it was a great treat to come across the Boot Inn, welcoming staff and a roaring fire was just what we wanted. The food was really good, a cut above everywhere else we've tried in the vicinity. Good value for money, good food, great atmosphere, well worth a visit.

OK, not a regular review as the visit was four Royal Navy mates who hadn't seen each other since we were fifteen Years old at HMS Ganges in 1965 and we are now 66 years old. Our requirements were comfortable en suite rooms, hearty food and a welcoming environment. Also a menu flexible enough to cater for one of us...

We used TripAdvisor to guide our choice here as we'd made the journey over Wrynose and Hardknot passes. Really nice staff, great lunch menu with a huge choice including some really enticing specials, and very accommodating for children. The food was really tasty, plentiful and great value. This is one we'll lock in the memory for next time we're in...

Only made an overnight dinner, bed and breakfast stop at the Boot Inn recently - sorry it was not longer. Room was clean and fresh, although a little on the small side, but ideal for an overnight stay. The young lady was most welcoming and took us to our room ( as well as serving our drinks, taking our order,...

We called in after a walk and were made to feel very welcome. Roast dinners on the menu ...veggie roast not mentioned on the board but when my husband asked if they had something suitable for vegetarians I was offered a vegetarian option. This was excellent. A lovely choice of vegetables, excellent veggie gravy and a batter pudding. The roast...

Dropped in for the tea and scones. Absolutely brilliant. Served up at the tables outside in the magnificent scenery, a real joy!!! A short walk will take you to a great waterfall and a mere 1/2 mile away is the old St Catherines Church.

If you are looking for 5 star accommodation and food then go to a big city and book a hotel. This is a very nice Inn located in a small Village. I've camped on the nearby campsite a couple of times and popped in to use the Bar and found the staff to be polite and helpful. The number of...

A glowing fire and a friendly welcome greeted us after a morning on the fells. Good choice of beer and the menu looked comprehensive. We settled for the soup as we had been eating for days over Christmas. Quite a bit smarter than my visit 30 years ago.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Boot Inn nestles in the tiny hamlet of Boot, deep in the heart of the Eskdale Valley. Within easy walking distance of The English Lake Districts largest and most majestic fells, yet only 7 miles from the sea. We provide first class food, drink and accommodation with nine letting bedrooms, bar, conservatory and snug areas, we also have ample car parking and a large beer garden. The inn itself has been catering for the hungry and thirsty travellers since the 17th century, offering a selection of traditionally kept cask ales, fine wines, sprits, continental beers, soft drinks and excellent food. At the Boot Inn we endeavour to source as many of our ingredients and most of our produce locally including the almost legendary cumberland sausages. Everybody is welcome included our four legged friends. With real log fires for those chilly autumn, winter or even summer days, a warm welcome is always guaranteed. The valley provides a wealth of opportunity for outdoor activity with Scafell, Great Gable, Harter Fell, Bowfelll, Crinkle Crags and many others all within walking distance without having to cross a single road! Cyclists can pitt themselves against the Hardknott and Wrynose passes, the steepest section of road in England leading to the Duddon Valley and Langdale. For those of a more spiritual and historical interest there is to be found the remains of a Roman Fort in the upper reaches of the valley and the beautiful 14th century church of St Catherines only a short stroll away. Slightly further afield attractions such as Muncaster Castle and Eskdale Golf Course are close by. ... more   less
