Just returned from a Sunday Lunch at the Watermans Arms with friends. As always the food was excellent, and the staff were very pleasant and polite. This pub is a hidden delight, we are so lucky to have this on our doorstep

A great family friendly pub in a beautiful village location. We serve Bar Meals throughout the week and Saturdays and a great Sunday Roast on a Sunday (where kids eat free). We have a large secure garden with childrens play equipment and a bouncy castle in the Summer. Dogs are welcome too. We serve a large range of beers lagers and real ales. We also have Bingo Nights, Quiz Nights and Live Bands on throughout the year.
