I spent three very enjoyable nights at the Carpenters Arms last week, I was greeted with a smile and found all the staff to be very friendly and helpful. My room was tastefully decorated and comfortable and the bathroom was modern and a good size. The bed I remember was also very comfy. Uniquely this pub has three car parks,... More

Have just returned from spending the weekend at the carpenters arms and a fantastic weekend was had by all! The management and staff could not do enough to help us before and during our stay which ensured a wonderful stay for us. Excellent food, service and rooms- would definitely recommend visiting!

We stayed here last weekend. Room was small but very nice with everything you would need. Didn't eat here but the dinner service looked good and was busy so obviously popular. Setting was lovely on quiet country road. We were eating at the pony and trap a mile or so away and if doing the same make sure you book... More

Visited the restaurant for a family get together on Saturday night, there were four of us. All the food was excellent, I especially enjoyed the sea bass on noodles with crunchy vegetables which was delicious. I really fancied the smoked salmon starter but didn't have it as pub meals usually have overly generous portions for me. However, well done Carpenter's... More

Met an old colleague for lunch and the meal was very good. Delivered on time with an excellent pint of Butcombe. The soup was delicious, the turkey great and the panacota to die for. Everything delivered on time in a wonderful country pub atmosphere in a beautiful part of the country.

We met with some close friends of ours who were staying here for the night. The staff were all very good and no complaints there. The food was just OK, nothing special. Having eaten here before and had memorable meals, we were disappointed this time and it was not a cheap meal either. I feel that I would look elsewhere... More

We spent a night at the Carpenters Arms in November to celebrate a 75th Birthday. There were 16 of us and we enjoyed a superb meal that was served very efficiently and really hot by very friendly and accomodating staff. We stayed here and the rooms were all very clean with an added touch of fresh milk (in a flask)on... More

Have stopped here once a year for the last few years and the place is very consistent. Great friendly atmosphere awaits with very attentive and helpful staff. A nice log fire for winter and a well stocked bar! Heaven. It is a little in the wilds but peaceful and an easy drive to Bath or Bristol. The rooms are of... More

The "Carps" has been a long time favourite so was the choice for a lunch with family yesterday and we were not disappointed. Good, attentive service and enjoyable food. We indulged ourselves for dessert and thoroughly enjoyed the treacle tart and sticky toffee puddings with generous scoop of clotted cream. We will return!

beautiful pub in a serene and rural setting between Bristol and Bath. The staff were all very friemdly and efficient. The ensuite room was light, airy and well furnished. We ate two dinners and two breakfasts there which were excellent. All in all a classy place which I heartily recommend. We'll be back in the spring!
