I've been here for a food a few times in the past and I can honestly say that over time the quality of the food has got progressively worse. The decor is lovely and the staff attentive but when I pay over £25 for Steak & chips the very least I expect is for it to have been rested and... More

The Carpenters Arms nestles in the side of the ridge-line which dominates the area. Surrounded by beautiful rolling countryside. The pub (which is part of the Provenance Chain) is set in pretty much the centre of a small village. The main pub building has been significantly added on to, although there is a old style bar area which might be... More

Noticed boards on main road to Sutton bank advertising the Carpenters so decided to give it a try. When we entered we chose a spot near an open fire and then asked at the bar if we could have a bar meal.We were ushered into the dining room as I don't think the staff realised we would have prefered the...

We arranged to stay with friends at the Carpenter's Arms on 14 december and there was a misunderstanding about rooms at checkin. It was almost worth having the misunderstanding to see the speed and efficiency with which the staff dealt with it. The problem was resolved and the stay was excellent.

We stayed here for one night between Christmas and New Year with one room in the main building and another a garden room in the courtyard. The rooms are lovely, comfy beds, fresh milk for tea and coffee the only slight (very minor) complaint was the typical hotel rubbish hairdryer! The food in the evening was delicious with great service... More

We came here with our 2 little dogs. The food was a high standard (think Gastro pub), the decor was stylish with a roaring fire and deep red colour scheme and the service was friendly and prompt. The loos were very luxurious. We recommend it to foodies!
