More information on the Boot and Slipper Inn at Smethwick to follow. I probably created the page as I had a link to the Boot and Slipper Inn from another page. When building the site it is easier to place links as they crop up rather than go back later on. I realise this is frustrating if you were specifically looking for information on the Boot and Slipper Inn. There is information on Smethwick and Staffordshire dotted around the website - click here for a suitable starting place.
