Boot Inn, Boot

The Boot Inn takes it name from the village, one of the most picturesque in the Lake District with old whitewashed and pink granite cottages and fells behind. It lies at the foot of the Hardknott Pass, the steepest road in the UK.

The peak in the distance is Great How (photo 1) and the inn is popular with walkers, some of whom will have trekked over Eskdale Fell from Wastwaster. It also attracts travellers on the Ravenglass & Eskdale Railway which terminates at Dalegarth half a mile down the road.

Called the Burnmoor Inn until 2005, the pub has an oak-beamed bar with jukebox, TV and a pool table. A selection of beers from Robinsons Brewery are available and the pub joins in the annual Boot Beer Festival when a much larger ranger of guest beers are on tap. Meals are available lunchtime and evening and there are seven rooms to let, six of them ensuite.
