Pub location on map


Ye Olde Boote Inn Whittington Oswestry dates from the 16th century when it provided a coaching house for visitors to Whittington Castle and a stop over from their journey into Wales. Today this charming Inn enjoys magnificent views of Whittington Castle and Moat, which is a mere 200 metres away. It has been kept in impeccable condition by its existing tenants and is a property that really needs to be viewed to be appreciated. This will not be an opportunity for long! The Boote has had a reputation for more than three decades of being busy come rain or shine - regardless of what night of the week it is the pub will still have its regular drinkers at the bar and has always been a regular eatery. The Boote can be the perfect place for a cosy table for two or even for a larger party for special occasions. As it offers the option to eat in the bar area of the pub or the restaurant.


Trading Accommodation

The pub itself has never lost its "olde worlde" charm, retaining its open fireplace and its wooden characteristics, there are plenty of cosy pockets to enjoy a pint with friends or get lost in conversation. Ye Olde Boote Inn has a large carpark, garden and a terrace, and has a restaurant that overlooks the beautiful Whittington Castle and its moat. There is a warm and welcoming reception area, and six en-suite letting rooms that are tastefully decorated in Laura Ashley. All letting rooms feature a desk and seating area, with a flat-screen TV and a modern en-suite bathroom with free toiletries. Some of the rooms benefit from views of Whittington Castle and the moat. Ye Olde Boot really requires an experienced tenant or tenants, someone that is dynamic and commercial and whose sole focus is enhancing the guest journey and experience, someone that can grow the food and drink sales through excellent customer service, and identification of new opportunities.
