Excellent food service and atmosphere

Lovely traditional British restaurant tucked away on a quaint backstreet a stones throw from London Bridge. The service is impeccable and the wine list fantastic. What makes it particularly special is the decor: wooden panels, low lighting, comfy seats and a view of the shard from some windows.

Restaurant/Pub with nice atmosphere and good selection of food.

We had a lovely pre-theatre meal at Boot and Flogger and cannot thank the staff enough for the very warm welcome and service they provided! The food was absolutely wonderful, complimented by our table in the warm and inviting Bar. The view of The Shard from our table was absolutely amazing!
We would definitely visit again and will definitely recommend Boot and Flogger to family and friends!

I am sorry to say it but I was very disappointed. I have read loads of positive reviews so my expectations were high. I did not enjoy my starter which was quail eggs. I was expecting them to be warm and soft boiled which they were not. Not worth the prize. But the biggest disappointing was my main dish - mushroom risotto. it did not have any creaminess to it . It was tasteless and plain. I do not think that any wine or parmesan were added while cooking. When I ordered coffee I did not get any sugar and when I finally got it my coffee was getting cold.
