We are local and couldn't wait for The Butchers Arms to re-open. What a smashing job has been done and it's now very welcoming. We cannot comment on food as we haven't eaten there yet but we were dismayed to find no 'regular' draft lagers...More

Description
The Butchers Arms has recently been brought back to life after being rescued by a group of enthusiastic locals. Now owned by a consortium of local villagers and investors, it has been completely refurbished, extended and remodelled. Operated with the assistance of The Proper Pub Co, The Butchers Arms now boasts a 'modern rustic' bar, a relaxed dining area, a stylish Private Dining / Meeting room, a multi-purpose function room and a newly landscaped tiered garden. A hub for community activities, The Butchers Arms is proud to support local teams and groups, both in the venue and out in the wider community. We also love well behaved dogs and children. With access to all areas for disabled users (with the exception of the upstairs Private Dining / Meeting room) we aim to make everyone feel at home. This truly is a pub for the modern era, encompassing traditional values and championing the cause for the revival of 'Proper Pubs'!
