About The Boot

Quintessential English pubs make for interesting history lessons. The Boot Inn Orleton in particular, is a centuries old building that has some intriguing stories to tell.

No one knows really how the pub got its name. Perhaps it was because in the late nineteenth century,  an Alfred Drew and William Jones were bootmakers who lived nearby. Although we can’t be entirely sure, it was probably because around that time, beer and ciders was served in a leather ‘jack’ or ‘boot.’  Nowadays we opt for glasses!

It was actually thought that The Boot Inn, Orleton,  was once three shops : a butchers, a cobblers and a funeral parlour. This could explain the variety of trades plied by past licenses.

Over the years, there’s been many tales of ghost roaming about the rural Ludlow pub. One in particular, relates to a painting of the pub located in the back room. A figure by the name of Joe Vale has been painted out after arguing with the landlord. It’s said that his ghostly figure returns now and then to take revenge on the landlord.

Lets hope he realises that we’ve changed landlords since back then!
