This is our second stay at The Carpenters Arms and I'm sure won't be our last. Every thing about this establishment is first rate. The rooms are extremely comfortable and spotlessly clean. The food, both for breakfast and dinner, were delicious, and the staff were efficient and very pleasant. We had a wonderful stay and would highly recommend it.

Called here for lunch on the recommendation of a friend. Superb food served very professionally and very reasonably priced for an establishment of this quality too. We'll definitely be back and intend to stay over on our next trip.

We have eaten at the Carpenters many times and have always found the food to be excellent. This time was no exception to the rule, our party of 6 really enjoyed the meal. As always the food was excellent and complemented by excellent service. Well done to all the management and staff.

Great food. My daughter is normally very fussy but ate everything in front of her. Price was reasonable. Considerate of children - they kept the other diners entertained. Not quite five stars due to having to wait a while to be reapproached for the bill. Thanks :)

The food was consistent with all of us enjoying our choices. I had the fish finget "buttie" with a small cup of soup, it was...

We found this place by chance and were wowed by its wonderful country charm decor. We were expecting a great lunch experience. Sadly the wow stopped there. The barman hardly acknowledged us as we walked in and I had to ask for menus. We ordered the French Onion Soup and a ham sandwich. The soup arrived but not the sandwich....

Visited several times. A bit expensive but usually well presented with good flavours. Visited Friday and Sunday and disappointed to be given what were definitely bought bread rolls that had been possibly frozen. Strangely today we were brought home made rolls at the start of the meal only then to be given a supermarket roll with the mussels. I think...
