The Old Boot, Stanford Dingley
Muddy says: A cosy 18th century pub in West Berkshire that has a new lease of life after a stylish refurb. Good pub food, fab garden and a friendly vibe.
The Old Boot Inn in Stanford Dingley – between Reading and Newbury – has recently changed hands and refurbished by current landlords Rebecca and Andre to give it the rustic pub vibe this 18th century inn deserves. Think Windsor chairs, muted wall colours, mixy-matchy furniture and a large garden to enjoy your drinkie en famillie.
It’s a strongly ‘local’ pub in the best sense of the word, where you can just pop in for a drink but also eat well if you’re inclined. You’ll find pub classics with a few modern British surprises, lunchtime sarnies and a weekend BBQ menu available at weekends throughout the summer. The garden is a draw in the summer but the roaring fires give the cosy vibes during the winter.
