It is certainly popular and at first they said I would have to wait 20 minutes for a table, but then they said I could sit down anyway. The menu is quite limited (although there is a selection of specials) and even more limited as quite a few items weren't available. The service was okay but lacked any attention and... More

I went with the intention of having a meal but I have to say That I was appalled at the attitude of the owner not only toward her staff but also her customers. I left without eating there and will not be returning.

We booked a table for 7.30 and were greeted by a waitress who asked us to get our drinks and she would then show us to a table. The barmaid serving drinks had to ask us 3 times what our order was despite it only being a pint and a lime and lemonade!! We then sat at our table and... More

We went by way of a recomendation, and when greeted by a cheerful waitress offering olives as soon as we were seated we thought we'd struck lucky. Sadly the beautifully presented food was plain and deep fried, utterly lacking in seasoning and rather over priced for what it was. The menu had looked so promising too :-(

The Blacksmith's Arms was a pub we ended up visiting because it was within walking distance from where we were staying in Flaxton. The ambience is nice and traditional, and the man behind the bar was very professional and courteous. We ordered food, though we were both slightly disconcerted by the young age of the waitresses, who seemed to be... More

Called for Sunday Lunch after reading Yorkshire Post article. There was six of us and the meat i.e. pork, lamb and the beef was tough really tough. In fact the pork and lamb were inedible and sent back, even the Yorkshire puddings were rubbery. Obviously we complained and the waitress was excellent, offering a reduction on the bill and a...

We had a quick meal in the Blacksmith's on Tuesday of this week. Steak isn't usually my number one choice as it can be SO bad. but I can honestly say that this is the best one I've eaten in a restaurant for some time. It came cooked exactly as requested (rare), which is also .... rare! The burger was... More
