The Boot Inn was situated at 124 North Allington.  This pub was closed in August 2007 and is now in residential use.

My father Peter James Murphy and my Mother Sheila Murphy were landlord and landlady of the Boot Inn , 124 North Allington Bridport Dorset , from July 1974 to August 1986 , we had many good years there , it was a locals pub in its early days but the welcome to visitors on Holiday through B&B insured a good mix of people passing through its doors . It was a sad day hearing it had closed .
There are lots of memories of great times especially around carnival time as we entered a float every year through our time there ,the locals getting involved in its construction in the pub car park each summer , there is evidence of us all on film at the end of this clip http://player.bfi.org.uk/film/watch-dorsets-bridport-carnival-1978/#.VqPRNF3W62s.facebook
