Bracknell pub prepares to reopen after major £500,000 refurbishment

Local Bracknell pub, The Boot, will reopen after an extensive refurbishment and refit this September.

All Our Bars, in partnership with Greene King, are behind the refurbishment works, which have taken several months to complete.

Both the interior and exterior have undergone a complete overhaul. “We cannot wait to open what will be a fantastic pub and dining venue with innovative drinks and a fine menu of tantalising dishes,” says Paul Wigham, CEO of All Our Bars. “The designers have come up with some amazing ideas that really show what a beautiful building this is, it’s looking superb”.

The site will feature an extended trading area, additional natural lighting from glass roofs and external beach huts for al-fresco dining. It has also been re-floored and re-decorated throughout. The more formal dining area will be available for private functions and meetings.

The Boot will be extending its existing cask and real ale range and introducing new craft beers and ciders. The offering will also include a wide selection of rare premium spirits and fine wines. Food will be served daily with emphasis on great quality, locally sourced and seasonal dishes. The pub will also be opening early for cake and coffee mornings, with a selection of freshly baked cakes and pastries, and will be serving up traditional roasts on Sundays.

Greene King and All Our Bars have announced that they plan to reopen and relaunch The Boot with an opening night party 7th of September to coincide with the opening of the Lexicon.

Paul Wigham said: “Once again, it has been a brilliant experience working with our partners Greene King who have been hugely supportive throughout a long renovation process. This is a true retail/pubco partnership that transcends many of the industry issues that are making headlines for the wrong reasons. We look forward to continuing our partnership into the future. Our thanks also go to Carty Building Contractors, Gardiff and particularly Focus Design with who we have now worked on four major projects. Their service is first class and their designs practical and innovative.”

The Boot is located at 48 Park Road, Bracknell, Berkshire, R12 2LU. Telephone: 01344 483 118. Website: Facebook: Twitter:
