user reviews of the Boot and Flogger, Southwark

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

Its been under new management since 1st Feb, apart from fancy electronic tills, nothings changed too much (so far... thankfully), although selfishly one change I would like is longer opening hours - For example I would love to spend a Sunday afternoon here.

The whole old gentleman's club/ time warp feel about this place is superb.

It's more expensive than Gordon's and doesn't have a Port from the wood sadly, but it provides a much more relaxed and equally unique experience.

A MUST visit, lets hope the new owners don't change the staff or mess with it, this bar needs to be set in amber and admired for generations to come.

Quite an atmospheric place. As you can tell this is a wine bar so they have no draught beer, but they do sell a small range of bottles (including London Pride). Not the cheapest place but probably worth a try to see somewhere quite different from the typical watering hole. (It is also the place where Tory MP David Davis was famously overheard talking about the 'Brokeback coalition' last year)

Lovely wine bar with comfy chairs.
Had a nice bottle of white with my long lost Clare.
You should go.

this is the best place in London to skive off work for the afternoon. Shame about the opening hours, though I could have happily staged long after 8pm.

Unique The previous review was spot on, I knew who the manager was instantly! But, to avoid being repetitive, I would like to add that the menu is simple, the food excellent and that this was only surpassed by fine wine and good service. Whilst being smart is advisable do not be put off in the thought that this venue is formal as personally, I found it both comfortable and lively!

love this place - big chesterfield sofas, wood panelling, it looks like a traditional gentlemen's club. they serve champagne in wine glasses - so much cooler than champagne glasses! i'd suggest to anyone who are planning to go - dress up a bit, you'll feel much more comfortable. There are a lot of suited men there. The manager looks like he also runs a tailor's shop in saville row. Food is traditional.boiled scallops with bacon - anyone? great place.

Wine Bar not a Pub but been using it for more years than I care to admit to! Even when it further down the road!
Excellent wine, good food and first class service.

Really a traditional wine bar. Great choice of wines, cheeses etc in a relaxed atmosphere. A quiet haven, friendless, classless and somewhere to escape the hoi palloy
