My wife and I popped in here for a lunch snack, as we had already planned an evening meal elsewhere later in the day. However, as it was our 1st visit to the Blacksmith's Arms we decided to try the fare by each having just a starter, both of which were delightful. After this our taste buds were well and... More

Out with friends, we decided to meet up at the Blacksmith's Arms. Outside was a bit shabby, however we decided to give it a try. On ordering drinks unfortunately a pint had to be returned as it tasted awful, the bar person changed it without any problem! Ordering the food and waiting close to 3/4 of an hour did not... More

A relaxing, warm and welcoming atmosphere with an excellent choice of food - the 'specials' menu never disappoints!!

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
