We returned here yesterday looking forward to a nice hearty bowl full of liver, onions & gravy which we have had on 2 occasions last year & thoroughly enjoyed it. We noticed it was still on the specials board & happily placed our order at the bar. It was a freezing cold day outside & a lovely steaming big bowl... More

Thank you for your comments. Sorry to hear you were not happy with the new presentation of our liver dish. However we can assure you it is the same portion size and ingredients, just on a plate. It was changed due to other customer comments. Next time you visit us, if you would like it in a bowl please ask... More

Food was poor no management around to complain to. Will not visit again .have visited many times the last 2 years the establishment has gone downhill food wise. It's a pity seems to be little owner interest .

Food absolutely outstanding. Ale was superb! The only slight let down was the dated decor. Found this pub on the way home on the off chance and I'm really pleased we did! Definitely recommend just for the food and ale alone!

Lovely Christmas dinner, homemade tomato and pepper soup, turkey main course with all the trimmings, Christmas pudding and brandy sauce, followed by homemade mince pies and coffee. Great service, meal was hot and very tasty. Lovely bottle of wine to accompany it.

Me and my friend went to the carpenters arms for dinner and it was like stepping back into the 1980's from the music to general decor the only saving grace was the excellent standard of food and service, if you are after a venue to take your grandma this just may be the place.

Recently visited the carpenters for a family occasion food was excellent perfectly cooked, one of the best pie I've ever had and the rest of my family enjoyed their meals just as much, the only down side I would say the restaurant staff was slightly rushed and young lady behind the bar only describe as being miserable

Odd to walk in and see only one other table of diners last Friday evening, perhaps it was an omen of things to come, or perhaps the loud 70's disco music put people off. The waitress was very nice and friendly but the food was very poor. I don't know how the chef can receive an order for two medium... More
