This is my second stay at the Great Western Arms, and it lived up to expectations. The room was comfortable and warm. Food and service in the evening was excellent and the breakfast? What can I say other than superb, lots of choices, a very cheerful and helpful waitress. No complaints and no doubt will be staying again in the... More

We visited the Great Western for lunch with friends having not been for a year or so. It is a lovely old rustic inn set by a canal which is usually very popular and has a good atmosphere. There is a very good menu choice and the standard of food is very good.

we booked the Great Western Arms which looked lovely for a romantic much needed night away. Our "deluxe" room number 1 was next to the kitchen. It was so noisy from the moment we got there 7pm it sounded as if we were in the kitchen! We spoke to a member of staff who assured us there would be peace... More

We called in for lunch without a reservation. The staff very welcoming and although the restaurant was busy a table was found straightaway. Food was delicious and piping hot. (The chips were amazing). Try the Pheasant Pie, absolutely full to the pastry top with meat and so tender. We will call in again.

Booked for lunch for 9, including family and some Swedish friends. Excellent service and food - we mainly had the Sunday roasts, which we couldn`t fault on size or quality - though initially only one serving of vegetables appeared to serve all of us! Probably a little pricey, but definitely worth the money. All helped, of course, by having Hooky... More
