Really warm and friendly atmosphere. The staff were extremely helpful and attentive; nothing was too much trouble; even providing a pair of glasses to read menu and altering a spotlight which was blinding! The food was well presented and tasted amazing. Soup fantastic (artichoke) and fish of the day was perfect. First visit and I would love to return again... More

We've just had one of the nicest Sunday roasts we've ever tasted. The beef and all of the veg was cooked to perfection with fantastically crispy yorkshire puds. The service was friendly and attentive and it was all very good value for money. The pub itself is old and very welcoming with a roaring open fire. There is a good... More

If like me you've been searching for a traditional country pub that serves homemade food using fresh local produce then the butchers arms is the place for you. Don't be put off by the narrow winding roads that lead you to this pub, its definitely worth the effort. The pub has easy access for disabled and families with children are... More

Not many other diners. The service was good as to be expected. The other meals looked generally OK. However I ordered the "Cheeky Beef" pie, which was not. The beef was tough and lacking in flavour. I would have thought that cut of meat should have been cooked longer, and then it would have been full of taste. This was... More

Haven't visited since November last year ( been busy with work ) so we had a trip through for some "cheeky beef pie ". As always the food is georgous, the beef in my pie melted in the mouth, fries ( not fat chunky rubbish ) were very tasty. Luckily for me my wife ordered the fish and chips and... More

We ordered a meat platter which came with bread & butter and a beef burger with blue cheese and skinny fries. Two very enjoyable meals which we both shared. I do no subscribe to the "American Way" of medium rare burgers, however good the beef is supposed to be, bacteria which is always on the outside of a piece of... More

Lovely pub, with a warm and friendly atmosphere. We went on a cold Sunday evening, The pub has a nice feel about it. A cold evening, but a nice log fire burning as we went in. I really like the pub but only rated average on some areas due to the following, my partner would have really liked a glass... More

Inspired by the latest Gastropub awards listing this as the 31st of its ilk in England, we booked Sunday lunch for a family group. Arriving early were warmly greeted, seated and treated to a fulsome list of menu options by a very pleasant and obliging young man. Drinks were served at the table and the two ales I enjoyed were...
