Stayed at The Benett Arms for one night. We had a twin room, but asked for another bed to be put in for our 3 year old, which was done without any problem. The room was clean and the beds were comfy. The breakfast the following day was lovely with a good selection of cereals and hot food. Amy and... More

We had planned on visiting 'The Forester' after visiting Old Wardour Castle but were short on time, so decided to seek out somewhere along our onward journey. Luckily, we happened upon The Benett Arms. The welcome was warm and friendly; the food very reasonably priced, excellent quality and served with a smile. They had a small selection of local beers...

I was incredibly impressed with the hospitality, the room and the breakfast. The pub is beautiful and filled with friendly locals. The room was quiet, clean and warm. I'd really recommend it for a picturesque and quiet stay.

They all said the rooms were... More

First of all the positives. The staff are really nice. The girl who welcomed us was busy at the bar but still greeted us in a cheery way and got us checked in. During our evening meal the waitresses were friendly and helpful, happy to do our small boy what he wanted. When they brought out our main meals they... More

Excellent value. Service was good. Joyce is the treasure - her food is fantastic. Food is plentiful and local produce is fresh and cooked to perfection. Pub is set beside an attractive green and pond.

My husband and I stayed here over a weekend and had a very enjoyable two night stay. We've been in for a drink and a meal on a few occasions while visiting friends but this time we actually stayed and would definitely stay again. The food was very good as usual (a little tip try Joyce's home made pate), breakfast... More
