The Boot & Shoe


We miss you too but it is going to take us a little longer to open as we work on ensuring that we can do so responsibly. When we do open we’ll ask you to observe new rules that we’ve put in place to keep you and our team members safe. We really look forward to seeing you soon.

The Boot and Shoe in Lancaster is owned by family brewery JW Lees; proud brewers since 1828. Our bar is filled with the JW Lees family of beers, including our seasonal cask range, plus firm favourites; Manchester Craft Lager and JW Lees Bitter and a collection of traditional and new style craft beers. Our back bar offers the best selection of spirits and soft drinks, and our cellar is full of hand-picked wines from around the world.

We’ve got menus filled with both pub classics & freshly prepared daily specials using the finest seasonal ingredients for every season, and possibly the best Sunday roast in the area. Alongside that, we’ve got a fantastic wood-fired pizza oven and great food and drink offers on throughout the week.

We offer free WiFi, regular live sports with Sky TV, quiz nights, dartboard, real fires and our beer garden is perfect for alfresco dining. We’re family friendly and even have an outdoor play area to keep the little ones busy.

There’s always plenty of events taking place at the pub from special offers to our ever popular quiz nights and being close to Lancaster University there’s something for everyone. Take a look at our WHAT’S ON page and sign up to our newsletter to keep up with what’s going on.

We are temporarily closed, we want to sincerely thank you for your support and we hope to come back stronger than ever when the government says we can reopen. Stay safe and we’ll see you soon, the Boot & Shoe team.
