We called in last night for a quick drink, along with our dog, Bracken (who was also given a drink but of the water variety!) Obviously, we checked prior to entering whether she could join us and we were delighted to discover she would be made most welcome as the policy is to welcome four-legged friends too. Anyway, we decided... More

Have visited the blackies on a number of occasions, being a local and can honestly say its a great place to eat and drink. The staff are very attentive towards the customers and make the vists so much more personal and special. Food is always great and the team always welcome feedback. I went with a group of friends on... More

Had a disappointing Sunday lunch today - a very small serving of (to be fair, tasty) pork loin, two small roast potatoes and two small new potatoes with boiled, unseasoned vegetables. The only enjoyable part of the meal was the Yorkshire pudding which had to be put down dry because the meagre serving of gravy had been used up on... More

Now its not always I go to the same restaurant two days on the trot, except on holiday maybe. Great food selection and really good service all within a super village pub. Give yourselves a treat pop in for a good time.

I called without booking, for lunch, on Thursday. There was only one table occupied, so clearly not busy. The welcome was fine, the young man behind the bar was helpful. I did however get somewhat irritated by 'sorry, we've run out of that, as we were very busy last night'. 'We've run out of pineapple' (for the gammon steak),'we've run... More

Love the idea of such a traditional local pub, Staff are very welcoming and helpful. The menu is on the constant change so there is never 'just once' you can go there! I've been there quite a few times for private events and even then they were some of the best times I've had! It's hard to find a Pub... More

Visited for lunch, first thing no pineapple with gammon (they had run out), but on friend's request did provide mushrooms. Chips are double fried, which done properly are very good but these tasted of yesterdays potatoes fried again. Five desserts on menu but only three available. Food OK but was very disappointed - would not visit again.

Hello MrsH409, Firstly I would like to apologise for not meeting your expectations when you visited us for lunch on Thursday and also thank you for your review / feedback. All of the food at the blacksmiths is prepared on site (apart from our bread!) and from time to time we misjudge the amount of portions to make up. We... More

My partner and I have visited the fab place a number of times, and have never been disappointed. So on Boxing Day, we took my parents. As always the food, drinks and the staff never fail to let us down. The Blacksmith Arm's may be a ride out for some, as it is for us, but it is well worth... More
