I normally wear a 8.5D US in Allen Edmonds, which generally translates to a 7.5 UK. My feet are a bit weird as one foot is size 8.5 and the other is 8.0 (US). I went to the Brighton store, not realizing that they only had whole sizes.
Not to be deterred, and having spent twenty quid on the train ride from London Victoria, I tried on the size 7.0 UK and 8.0 UK monkey boots. The size 8.0 was far too big, and the 7.0 were a touch small so I bought the size 7.0 and wore them with thin socks.
So basically I 'sized down 1/2" because I was determined to leave the Brighton store with a pair of boots, and it worked out rather well in the end.
