This place is great! Rustic, cosy and beautiful. The food was gorgeous and the service was excellent. Our room was called The Study, the decor was lovely and gave you all the modern touches that make your stay comfortable. It has a huge bed and beautiful bathroom with a lovely big bath and a separate shower. We loved it all... More

Stayed for 2 nights, wonderful room, very attentive staff, very good food. One small gripe, probably nothing they can do about it but internet connection is sloooooow!!!!. Will definitely be back, but probably won't bother bringing I pad 😀.

We have visited the howard arms on several occasions now for lunch and dinner. The food is FANTASTIC, home made, using local produce and is always amazing! The staff are super friendly and accommodating to any requests you make. There's always a lovely bustling atmosphere in the bar and restaurant. Hope to visit again soon, can't recommend highly enough!

We had visited the Howard Arms once before for lunch and made a mental note to come back and stay. We're glad we did. We were complicated guests (two vegetarians travelling on bicycles - sounds like the start of a joke) but we had a really warm welcome. They made some space for our push-bikes in the store cupboard to... More

Firstly we had booked weeks in advance,two days before going there we received an email from them 'confirming our cancellation'....they then said they had no idea why this was sent!!!! Our table we booked for dinner for the two nights had... More

On the way back from a long weekend in Devon we decided to treat ourselves to a hotel stay after surviving the brunt of Hurricane Bertha after camping for Friday and Saturday. We picked Statford-upon-Avon as our destination as it wasn't too far from home, and went about looking for suitable lodgings. We came across The Howard Arms as one... More

On Friday we stayed for the second time at the Howard Arms. Again we had the Summer Room which is spacious and comfortable.. Dinner and breakfast faultless. Staff polite, warm and friendly. The boiler failed on Saturday morning so we could not shower when we got up. These things happen and it is how they are dealt with that matter.... More

Lovely ambience, timeless setting: mix-match wooden furniture, big old fire place . Sufficient window seats were vacant, service was fast and amiable. We choose the à la carte lunch menu, though the fixed price one was tempting, also intriguingly served from 6 - 6.45 pm. Starters chosen were an excellent 'beef strips' dish, and a disappointing squid ink coloured gnocchi... More
