See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.

City centre pub dating from 1643. The facade was restored in the 19th century but it has been known as the Boot Inn since 1750. Original beams, fireplace and wooden furniture are complemented by a display of the ‘wattle & daub' construction. More of that, along with a tapestry and iron chandelier in the stairwell to the upstairs toilets. Also look at the splendid rear parlour with cooking range and screened settle seating. Just a shame the mullion windowed Eastgate Room is no longer open to the public. Strict no electronic devices (including mobile phones) & no swearing rules. Full range of brewery's bottled beers including Stingo.
