Sorry for the delay in writing this review but I am not from the area and I have just finished giving positive feedback about another pub in the area so thought I should compare the two. We visited on Boxing Day and found it to be a great disappointment. The staff were clueless and the waiter didn't even know how... More

Lovely pub in a quiet location and a good starting point for walks in the "little Switzerland" area of Cheshire. Nice atmosphere with a busy bar in the evening, wood fires, good food is good which represents excellent value. The chips are well above the average for Cheshire.

We stopped in The Boot after a little walk in the countryside. The service was friendly and attentive and the food was very good. We had the fish and chips and the lamb Henry, both hearty portions, with fine flavor and lovely presentation. They have a substantial wine list and various beers on tap. There is also outdoor seating with... More
