The Boot Inn

Nr. Tarporley,

Tel: 01829 751375


The Boot Inn is situated in Willington, surrounded by beautiful rolling Cheshire countryside.  The pub is perfectly located for ramblers to discover the surrounding areas.Kelsall and Willington are at the heart of Cheshire’s fruit farming country. Soft fruits flourish in the light, sandy soils while the ridge protects the plants from the chill, easterly winds. Boothsdale or ‘little Switzerland’ as it is fondly referred to is directly behind the pub and can be accessed by a footpath.

We warmly welcome rambling groups but would advise that large parties pre-book to avoid disappointment, there is limited parking and seating.


A British registered charity which promotes rambling, protects rights of way, campaigns for access to open country and defends the countryside.
