The Boot Inn, Houghton

Apparently under new management since April 2011, this is a lovely pub set in beautiful country side. There is a spacious formal dining room with neatly set oak tables area, offset from the single bar. The new owners have been clearly been making substantial improvements . The bar and restaurant have been refurbished since the previous review, along with immaculate new toilet areas. The car park was in the process of being reconstructed on the day we visited. My overall impression of the interior was light and bright. Cask ales on offer were Palmers Cooper and Flacks Double Drop. We opted for the Palmers which was in good condition. Staff were friendly and attentive. Bar meals and full menu options with food professionally cooked and nicely presented. A mix of clientele, from locals enjoying a lunch time pint out front, to dining groups. Something for everybody here.

It’s reassuring that pubs like this still survive . The kind of delightful pub that is fast disappearing, untouched by modern trends to modernise and ‘gastro-ise’. On the occasion we visited, staffed by two ladies and a shy but talkative parrot This pub offers good traditional home cooked meals, like those my mother used to cook and sold at budget prices. With four Arkells ales on offer, we stuck with the Moonlight which was in excellent condition. A must for a return visit.

The Rising Sun, Hurley

My impressions were exactly the same as the previous reviewer, even better, two seasonal Rebellion ales were on offer. Although the food available was standard pub fare, it was prepared to a good standard and at a modest price.
