The Paddock

  • Large Dining capacity

    We work with a great local company called Events Under Canvas who, as their implies, can provide the structure inside and around which your celebrations can happen. Many of our guests have used these ti-pis to create a wonderfully atmospheric space.

    With the sides up, a single ti-pi can seat up to 100, although this wouldn't allow for any socially distancing. As the photos show, they can be joined together to create a an even bigger, more spectacular, space. 

    We are hoping to acquire our own single ti-pi soon and so would be able to include it in a wedding package at a significantly discounted rate. Please do ask if this is something you would be interested in. 

    Of course, of you'd like something different, we'll do our very best to accommodate it.

The Food

At The Boot we are passionate about sustainability and the food we produce.
Our talented team of chefs pride themselves on only using the freshest locally sourced ingredients.
We have our own kitchen garden and offer homegrown produce on site.
So you and your guests will experience fresh food, straight to the fork.

The Package

Whilst all of our wedding receptions can be tailored to you, our standard offering is loosely based around a 'Festival' theme with our delicious food served at 'Festival Stalls'. Your guests can then enjoy their dishes in an informal setting, for example seated in the Wedding Paddock or the Orchard, or more formally, around tables, perhaps in a giant tipi.

The elements of the package are as follows:

Hire of the Venue - the Gardens.

This includes exclusive use of the Wedding Paddock, the Blessing Paddock, the kitchen garden and orchard, the Roundhouse (which will be set up as a fully equipped outside bar), a reserved car park for your guests, your own wedding coordinator and waiting staff.

Choose the food and drink for your guests

From our individually priced 'Festival Stalls'. Mix and match depending on your tastes and your budget. 

Drinks will be sold from the private Roundhouse Bar at standard restaurant prices & 'Drinks Packages' are available to pre-order.

Hire of a Tipi or Marquee

Many of our wedding guests have used tipis to create a wonderfully atmospheric space. We can recommend a great local company called Events Under Canvas who specialise in hiring out tipis. Alternatively, we are hoping to acquire our own giant tipi soon, which we will be able to hire out at a significantly discounted rate, or you can arrange your own hire.

Wedding guests may also use the main pub building, but this will be shared with our other customers.


Our new brochure is now available to download. It includes full menus for all of the 'Festival Stalls', drinks packages and a price list.

A Church Wedding?

 We're located just a few hundred meters from the beautiful village church of St Peters, Freston.
So, if you'd like to make a connection with the parish with a view to being married in the church,
we can put you in touch with Reverend Jenny.
