A quick date night sans children. I have to confess I wasn't up to going out but the opportunity was too good to miss. The Boot is a boozer and authentic Italian eatery. The atmosphere was excellent with plenty of banter or bantz as the...young people say. Jose our waiter was very attentive. The food was excellent, my ribeye was rarer than I like and was cooked a little longer with the minimum of fuss. The wine may have been a limited choice but my glass of merlot was very good as a house wine I thoroughly recommend it. My date (the wife) enjoyed her starter the bread crumbed brie very much and her duck was perfectly cooked. We took home dessert as we were tired and some containers were provided in a blink of an eye. I can't wait to go back and take the kids.More

Great welcome. Plenty of space and menus options. Pizzas are first class with pizza oven. The duck was awesome. Service was great and the pub is well run and clean. Just wish they wore masks and encouraged others to do so.

First visit this evening and will definitely be going back best Italian food I have had in ages!! Home made pasta dishes I only wish I could have fit in a pudding as I was eyeing up profiteroles!

a month ago I look forward every year to the races. I have been watching for the last 7 years. Even though I can't be there I still am as excited each year. This year I was able to purchase a few items from the...Ascot Racetrack Shop. Was within a week from order to delivery even. I would recommend watching the race as is fun to see the men dressed up in top hats and formal coats and of course the women in their hats. This year of course was different because of covid and did miss the royals as they usually arrive in carriages. I really enjoyed the guessing of what color the Queen would wear. Overall the race was 5 days and I enjoyed every minute.More

I was very disappointed when I visited the boot for a meal with my twin girls. There was absolateely no ventilation in the restaurant, most staff not wearing masks. Restaurants have a moral obligations to protect their customers and staff, the boot was business as...usual and no covid considerations. Please consider the welfare of your customers and staff, Covid is a killer disease.More

Service was very good with friendly and professional staff. Food was good. Disappointed that none of the staff were wearing masks - I know the government has left it to personal choice but everywhere else we have been staff have been in masks and customers...encouraged to wear them moving around.More
