Description: 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 including 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, Bowfell, 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.Plus we are directly on the coast to coast mountain bike route and have secure bike storage available. 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.

Lovely location and facilities with nice garden. Pub staff a bit abrupt and hurried you along and no eating in the garden after 7pm which is a shame when it was so hot when we visited. Food good though

We were staying in the area for a cycling event (and with a dog). Warm friendly welcome - nothing too much trouble. Our second visit and we need to come back when we are not too rushed. Anita and Stuart do a cracking job - the room was lovely and clean - well stocked down to the mini cafetière and 'real' coffee. No TV in room and that was a bonus - why do you need a TV when you can sit outside watching the birds and soaking up the atmosphere - all the profits seem to go on bird food - you guys need a commendation from RSPB ! Breakfast was lovely - everything was lovely and will see you again soon for a more leisurely visit - oh and by the way the food was excellent and the choice of drinks brilliant.

We had several fabulous meals here during our holiday. All were cooked to a very high standard. My Favorite was Lamb Henry with Chocolate chip and pecan brownie with ice cream. The staff were fantastic, the pub was welcoming, would definitely highly recommend it!
