  • Boot Inn Grouse and Duck

Welcome to The Boot Inn, a traditional Freehouse pub bar, restaurant and, seasonally, The Riverside Garden Grill.

Situated in a rural and tranquil setting, just outside Stockbridge, we offer you a traditional Free House bar serving a selection of cask ales and carefully chosen wines. Our restaurant offers an extensive menu ranging from bar snacks to specialities that change with the seasons, and supplemented by an idyllic beer garden running down to the world renowned River Test.

In keeping with our policy to feature in season game The Boot Inn has once again been able to secure ample supplies of early season young grouse from one of Scotland’s finest estates.

Our team of drivers will depart the spectacular Highland vistas of heather blooming and young grouse cackling mid-afternoon on the 12th of August with the first 100 brace of young birds bound for The Boot Inn.

An all-too-brief overnight stay in the Lake District will ensure the valuable cargo arrives at Master Butcher John Robinson’s Stockbridge emporium by 10am the morning of the 13th. No rest for the drivers! Straight to the plucking machine and the first dressed young birds will be in The Boot’s kitchen by noon. Our team of chefs will be on hand to prepare and serve the initial delectable presentations of early season grouse during lunch that day and thereafter.

Be the first to savour the earliest and most succulent of our 2019 game offerings!

£25.00 for a whole young bird and all the trimmings…….1/2 London’s price! –
