It has been years since we last visited this pub. It is like stepping back in time. Old fashioned pub but in a good way. It makes a change from the chains and trendy pub/bars. The staff were friendly and couldn't do enough to please us, the food was delicious, fresh veg and hearty portions. Prices were reasonable, The range... More

Visited here with my partner for Sunday Lunch, gorgeous olde worlde pub that hasn't jumped onto the modernisation bandwagon that so many "gastro" pubs have done ans ruined themselves in doing so. This place is full of character, lots of interesting antiques for sale as well. We opted for the Roast Lamb and my word what a generous portion! Being... More

Although this is a lovely little pub/restaurant in the country it lacks empathy for those who cannot eat 'old fashioned fayre. I visited the restaurant in December with friends and there were several choices on the menu and 'specials' on the board. On this occasion I ate liver but was unable to have a dessert. I visited again in January... More

Food was really good and plentiful, served with plenty of fresh veg perfectly cooked for out taste (not mush). Not the longest menu but something for all tastes. We plan a return visit with our...

This is the third time we have been back to the Blacksmiths Arms with good friends. The landlord is very friendly and attends to the cooking. The food is truly great and the portions will defeat you I can almost guarantee it. The steak and Stilton pie is to die for. The character of the pub is wonderful with marvellous... More

This is a very charming place. The fire is usually roaring, it is cosy and full of interesting antiques for sale. There is always a warm welcome and it has a lovely restaurant too.

Last night we had a lovely meal in the company of the patrons Maureen and Colin (chef). It was an unusually quiet night at the restaurant on Thursday but still lots of atmosphere with oil lamps and candles throughout the pub and restaurant. We have eaten our way through the fabulous menus prepared by Colin over the years and the... More
