The Boot is a large, attractive mock-Tudor detached brick-built building under a pitched tiled roof. It is double bay-fronted and predominantly arranged over two storeys.
A central entrance porch opens into the main bar area, which has two bay windows, male and female WCs, darts area, open fireplace, access to a games room with pool table and further male and female WCs. These areas cater for c. 60 covers from a central wooden bar servery. The back of house includes a commercial trade kitchen with extraction and an L-shaped basement cellar.
On the first floor there is sizeable private accommodation comprising four double bedrooms, kitchen/dining room, 3pc bathroom and landing/office area.
At the rear of the property there are several brick-built storage sheds, which we understand were formerly WCs. Mainly laid to lawn, the trade garden is fully enclosed by brick wall and timber fencing and has a tarmac seating area with picnic tables for c. 24 covers. There is a timber pergola to the rear which is currently used as a barbeque area.
The area of the site is 0.1 acres (539m²) and the ground floor footprint (GEA) of the public house extends to 178m² (1,916ft²). Measurements are taken from digital mapping and are approximate.
We are advised the site is not Listed, nor is it situated within a Conservation Area. The relevant local authority is North Hertfordshire District Council https://www.north-herts.gov.uk/.
