Had some bread and oils to start with some French red wine which was cheap and enjoyable, the gentleman looking after us was extremely accomadating and we had fish and lamb shank which were delicious and a refreshing change from the usual chains in Leicester, great spot, great price, lovely decor. Recommend to all, couples or big parties,

The building occupied by The Boot Room used to be a restaurant called Stones which was one of our favourites many years ago. Didn't realise till recently that it was open as a different restaurant till a friend recommended it. The building brought back such good memories from 15+ years ago, the service was excellent, food amazing, I had medallions,... More

Visited on a CBA Tuesday. I was rather disappointed with the lack of flavour & the standard of the food. There was a hair in my salad & was surprised when I was asked if I wanted my food re-plated or if I wanted a fresh plate of new food. I think there are more VFM restaurants in Leicester. Not...

Sadly, The Boot Room fails on every level. We were a group of 12 celebrating a special birthday and we all felt that the service was amateurish, the food disappointing and the wine list sadly lacking. Sorry Boot Room you just don't cut it!

We had a travel zoo offer for 4 people which included a glass of prossecco, a main and a dessert. The food was excellent , very tasty and well presented. One of our party needed gluten free food which was accommodated no problem from bread to shortbread biscuits with the creme brulee. The staff were friendly and service efficient during... More

I had a a great meal here on valentines day, the set menu had lots of lovely options. I can't complain at all about the food, drink or service, all was perfect. Having looked at the main menu we will definitely be returning.

Really good food and excellent service. Nice atmosphere too. Lovely photographs of shoes all around and old wooden shoe lasts on the table as recognition of the build having been a show factory originally.

OK it was a freezing cold evening but despite a warm welcome and tasty food, my overwhelming feeling was that I was very cold indeed! Modern British food. Starters were OK. Could do with more least fussy, less spicy options. Mains were fine. Desserts fabulous. It is the setting that is the selling point here. Lovely room and friendly professional... More

There was work going on in the street and footpath outside, which made access difficult, but we persisted, and we were glad we did! Service was polite, efficient and friendly, even though we were a little late arriving and looking for food. Interesting pictures of shoes and boots on the wall! Food was good. We had starters and desserts, as... More
