Book Now Book online with our trusted suppliers


Tucked away close to London Bridge station and Borough Market, the Boot & Flogger is one of the original London wine bars and a true hidden gem. It was opened in 1964 by John Davy trading as a Free Vintner, a privilege granted by the Worshipful Company of Vintners. It is full of authentic charm and jovial service and with a treasure trove of areas in which to drink and dine. The seasonal menu focuses on classic British dishes, with best quality meats hand-carved off the bone, Donald Russell's award-winning steaks and the famous sticky puds. The wine list focuses on classics from the 'Old World' available by the glass or bottle and look out for some rare vintages on the fine wine list. The Boot & Flogger has the feel of a private members club, and is home to some of the most unique private rooms in the area.

I recently had dinner here during a business trip to London. It is truly a gem. I felt like I was traveling back in time 100 years. The interior is dark, yet inviting. We sat in a room that was way in the back, down the stairs. There are no draft beers, like most other pubs, but they have good bottled selections. The food was excellent. I had the steak and chips with peppercorn sauce. I ate at... more

I have had his pub bookmarked for awhile and thankfully finally checked it out and I had a great time. The ambiance alone is just so unique - cases with vintage bottles of wine, leather chairs, a totally wooden interior, etc. I only went here for drinks on a date and it was the perfect setting - beautiful but relaxed and very cozy. Also, there's a downstairs that opens up for private... more

Great place. Very atmospheric. Only had drinks so can't comment on the food. Like an old pub straight out of a Dickens novel.

Can be a little tricky to find -- it's down a street that appears deserted and can look a little creepy at night. No worries, just watch your map and the doorways as you walk by, you'll find it. more

I didn't have time to eat, but the menu looked good and reasonably priced. I did grab a snack of flatbread and hummus. Not exactly hard to get wrong, but this was really good. Flatbread was nice and warm, hummus... more

Excellent name, lots of character and some amazing truffle mac and cheese to boot!

We were just out of an amazing play at The Bunker and we needed to recede to a cool, dark place to replenish.

This hit the spot for sure. Off the beaten track and the kind of place we wouldn't have spotted without the Yelp app, this felt like an Oxbridge-college high-table experience. Slightly eccentric... more
