Concrete Boots Bar is a relaxed restaurant and bar on Burnley Street, Richmond. The name comes from the old school mobsters who used to lurk these parts and put bullet holes in some of the local buildings. We use local producers and focus on sustainable practices. Our chefs cook you up contemporary pub fare, 12 taps pour beers from local breweries and we will mix you up a pretty mean cocktail.

    booked this joint thinking it would be good, it was pretty crappy and extremely dead

    Concrete Boots BarResponded on 4 February 2022

    Hey Mate- sorry to hear you didn't enjoy your time at Boots. January can be pretty painfully slow around Richmond . Plus it's been pretty tough for hospo with people staying home trying to avoid the "c-word" and traveling for the holidays -but we promise it's vibes all around the remainder of the year. I think you can see that from the rest of the feedback from patrons for the venue. Hope you come in and give it another crack one day, we'd love to show you how we really get down!

    The staff are the biggest asset here. Very friendly and helpful. Concrete Boots is a great venue with a fun option of activities like happy hours, trivia and open mic nights. We enjoyed our meal and the trivia and would encourage other locals to get around these guys. Well worth a visit. You can even bring your furry friend - love that!

    Concrete Boots BarResponded on 19 January 2022

    Jane! Thank you for the kind words, you're going to make us blush! We're so happy to hear you love Boots and our team as much as we do! We hope to see you and your furry friends in again soon!

    Thanks, Jason! We've got some mid-strength in the can for our drivers! Sorry if that wasn't communicated. We've got some new staff on and they're still learning the ropes! Hope to see you in again for a mid or full strength beer soon!

    Took us over an hour to get our drinks whilst other tables around us where constantly being served with more drinks, food orders were forgotten or brought out extremely late and staff didn't seem to be apologetic at all. We were questioned about lying because our drinks didn't arrive and after the 5th complaint we finally received them with a blank sorry and then 20 minutes later got kicked off our table for another reservation. Food was okay but not worth everything else for

    Concrete Boots BarResponded on 7 August 2021

    Hey Claudia- We're really sorry to hear about your less than stellar experience with us. I completely understand why you would be frustrated with the situation. Coming in and out of lockdowns has been incredibly challenging, especially finding staff that are wanting to stick through all the chaos that comes with each lockdown. However, this does not excuse a bad experience. We'd love it if you'd give us another chance. I'll send you a message privately as well with my contact info.

    Hi Jsmada, thanks for the feedback and sorry about your experience. I can't find your booking and would like to know some more about what happened so I can stop it from happening again. Would you mind sending an email via our website or giving me a call? I'll make it up to you. Post-COVID-lockdown it's been very difficult finding staff and training up the ones I have hired so any feedback helps so much. Thanks in advance, Andrew

    I usually love concrete bar. However the manager or whoever the man with the man bun was was extremly disrespectful to our group. When paying the bill he accused my friend of being on MDMA and was extremly rude. first off we had not had MDMA and who speaks to customers that way? we had all spent at least $50 each on cocktails and spent on food ontop of that. I hoenstly question coming back after the condescending and disrespctful experience with the manbun man. However female waitors were BEAUTIFUL AND KIND.

    Concrete Boots BarResponded on 8 December 2020

    Hey there, I'm sincerely sorry about that. I was having a joke and thought it was funny but it obviously wasn’t. I’ll pull my head in. 😔 Thanks for letting me know. I hope that I didn’t ruin your night. If you come back in I’ll shout you a drink. - Andrew - man-bun manager.

    Hi Phil, sorry about the weather. I hope it didn't ruin your night! Due to COVID restrictions we were only allowed 10 people inside. We have do have it noted in the booking information when guests book. We'd love it if OpenTable could put it in the confirmation messages too but alas this feature is not available yet.
