I have heard about the roast dinners at The Butchers Arms from many of my friends over the years and so I was excited to go there and finally experience it for myself. There was a large group of us but we were all seated at different tables, albeit in the same area. The first thing I noticed was the... More

I live in the area and have been to this place a couple of times since my first visit not long ago. Lovely place with a nice "local pub" feel to it. Service is friendly and non-corporate. The food is great and they serve "proper" portions. Perhaps most importantly the food comes on plates. No "steak on a piece of... More

There was 10 of us celebrating my sons 18th, he is in a wheelchair, the service and the staff were amazing and very welcoming. They were brilliant with my son and made a fuss of him. The food was fantastic and we all enjoyed the whole experience there! Xx

We frequently visit the Butchers Arms for lunch and have always had a lovely meal. The lady behind the bar is very friendly and cannot do enough to make sure you enjoy your visit. The food is excellent and the portions large. There is normally a fire to warm you up on cold days and dogs are welcome. As locals... More

It is such a pleasure to return to this pub for a Sunday Roast. In 10 years have never been disappointed in the quality of the food, the exceptional customer service and just an overall amazing atmosphere. I read a negative review which must have occurred around the same time as my visit. I cannot imagine how one person's experience... More

The food was terrible!! The food was served cold... More

Booked a table on a Friday night and expected it to be very busy but we were the only ones there. I should have taken this as a sign of what was to come. We had arrived and were told by the surly barman that we had order our drinks at the bar and the food was detailed on a... More
