The Rascal is going to Oman, he is a friendly old chap. I am sure he will give you a lift. PM him.

The Boot is one of my favourite ever pubs in Warwickshire, as is The Malt Shovel - just in case anyone ever goes near the NEC.

They do great fish.
Hi,
Yes - know The Boot well. We used to live in part of Chadwick Manor when I worked in Leamington Spa and we also had the Orange Tree just down the road - that is owned by same company as The Boot!
Apparently Jasper Carrot lived nearby - but I never saw him.

Cheers
Steve

(how off topic)

I only met him once, when he and I were getting measured for Tuxedos at Redfords on Warwick Road in Solihull, we went to the opening of the Orange Tree, ex knows Paul Salisbury really well. Still preferred the Malt Shovel though. But The Boot's fireworks and New Years Eve was always great (sat on a table upstairs with Suzanne Dando and Andy Gray (affair)), was also the place that Ron Saunders (Ex Villa Manager) used to take his long term affair - who was our mate's mother. Guess he thought we never knew.

Warwickshire, who'd have thought it eh?

His sister was my parents next door neighbour.

Christmas eve many year ago, there's a knock at the door and my father open it up to find Jasper on the doorstep with a huge cooked turkey on a tray - my Fathers response was 'okay, whats the punchline ?'

My sister used to work at the Malt Shovel in her summer holidays and my mother still likes the place for special occasions, although I find the food overly fussy.

Never went in the Boot but cycled past it many times after being dropped off in Banbury and made to cycle back to Coventry area via Solihull and Meriden ::confused2:
