About The Boot

The Boot at Freston. Opening around May, 2018.

The original building dates way back and legend has it that Freston was the site of the last recorded case of the Black Death in England. A couple of minutes from the A12 and A14, a stone’s throw from the River Orwell with views over the iconic bridge The Boot stands at the gateway to the Shotley Peninsula – ideal as a base camp for ramblers & cyclists. Alton Water & the Royal Hospital School are a couple of minutes down the road.

We’re installing a massive kitchen garden, a wedding paddock (a field enclosed by woods, perfect for a beautiful marquee), a large & rambling pub garden stretching out across the hill, a kombucha brewery, demo area, chickens, ducks, bees & snails. Oh, and a CINEMA!!!

Keep tuned for details….

    My great grandparents owned the boot way before my time and my mum spent many family Christmas’s there as a little girl. Can’t wait to visit with her when open!
