The River Test is renowned as one of the world's best fly fishing waters, and The Boot enjoys a tranquil location on its banks. The 18th-century timber-framed bar serves a choice of beers and ciders, while its restaurant strives to serve good food without earning the gastro-pub sobriquet. In the bar you can choose from a selection of baguettes, salads, or the likes of faggots with crushed new potatoes, bacon, peas and onion gravy; while the restaurant offers three cheese and cherry tomato tart; roasted vegetable linguine with pesto and garlic bread; or haddock mornay with mash, broad beans and prawns.
