A lovely restaurant very cosy and welcoming with a lovely menu. Homely and wholesome food with great flavour and super prices. Had the chicken pie with potatoes and veg, pie was full of large chicken pieces with delicious flavour and a puff pastry top. Fast service and booked for a family dinner for Easter, would definitely recommend

We recently attended The Open Arms for a late lunch and were really impressed with the extensive menu on offer. They also had a great deal for lunch times of a 3 course set menu for £8.95 which we opted for. The portions are large and the quality is great. The staff were friendly and relaxed. The environment is lovely... More

We visited the open arms for Sunday lunch as a couple. We arrived at 3, ordered immediately . There was no Roast beef left so we had pork and chicken. 40 minutes later having watched several people being served who had ordered food after us I asked a bar maid to find out where our meal was. It arrived 10... More

Staff lovely, very friendly and helpful. A credit to the place. Menu very greasy and dirty, so were the condiments - all needed a good clean. Not enough cutlery or serviettes, we had to ask for more. The bowl that my dinner came out in was stone cold, so my meal went cold very quickly. The food was ok but... More

We were looking forward to a meal here after our last visit a couple of months ago. We opted for The Open Arms rather than the New Varsity on the strength of some nice vegetarian dishes on their current menu. On placing our order we were told that our favourite dish, (Yellow Pepper Pasta) has been removed ready for the... More
