What a little gem of a place. Very popular so I would advise that you book in advance. This was Mother's Day so probably extra busy but I have visited mid week in the past and this would appear to be a popular eating place. A good variety of dishes on the menu but they serve a lovely carvery daily.... More

Tasty carvery with melt-in-the-mouth pork and turkey. Good selection of fresh vegetables, not hidden by or smothered in various sauces. Plenty of choice.

Headed to the Bunbury Arms for a Monday night Carvery. Nice pub inside with nice and friendly staff. The food was fine and we were not disappointed - the value was incredible. It was busy which shows how much people enjoy it. A solid performance won over by the price

After being recommended The Banbury Arms for their Carvery we decided that we would give it a go as we do enjoy a good Carvery. We rang and booked a table for 18.30. We arrived and got seated straight away. When it came to ordering drinks I asked if they served Non Alcoholic cider (kopperberg) and got the reply "all... More

The pub/restaurant is actually a pleasant place to visit, the decor is nice as are the staff. I have no complaints over either of these and this is the sole reason it got a 2. Everything is quite nice as long as you don't decide to actually eat anything ... Dinner this evening consisted of The Soup of the Day... More
