We called in here looking for Boot Brewery Beers, which are brewed in a micro brewery at the back of the Boot pub in Repton. Luckily for us they had two Boot ales on handpull, an IPA and a Bitter. We tried both and liked the two of them, but for me the IPA was outstanding. The interior of the pub/restaurant was modern with some nice finishing touches, but still retained the feel of a traditional village country inn. The staff were friendly and knowledgeable, a very enjoyable visit so I would definitely return again. They also have a sister pub the Dragon in Willington, which also serves Boot Brewery Beers.

A pub restaurant with accommodation that felt like a clean, contemporary-style pub. Two rooms, with wooden floors, leather chairs and soft upholstered benches, cream and plum painted walls and a small brick inglenook fireplace at one end. There was some acoustic guitar background music being played on CD which complemented the surroundings.
Besides the usual tap beer there was Pedigree, RCH Pitchfork, Bass Premium Bitter and Doom Bar on cask. There was also a choice of cake on the bar.
I usually prefer the more traditional pub but I felt quite comfortable in here.
We ate a good lunch between us of rustic bread with olive oil and dips served on a wooden board followed by cajun chicken breast burger and tex mex burger, served by a pleasant and helpful young lady. The clientele was a from a wide age range. It's a good place to take the missus out for a meal.
