Excellent value

Visited this pub twice and it was always busy. They do a 2 course meal for £8.50 with a reasonable choice of menu; staff were very friendly and the food was good. They had a pub quiz whilst we were there which we took part in.

Visited the carpenters arms for a meal with the family the pub has a homely welcoming atmosphere, the drinks were reasonably priced and they have a good selection of wines and beers. The food was fantastic as were the staff, it was nice to see the landlord checking on the customers in the dinning room. I'd recommend this pub to... More

We were 'accidentally' overcharged for our first drinks on arrival and then 'accidentally' overcharged again for our meals! When we asked for a breakdown of the bill we were made to feel uncomfortable and the barman suggested that we wouldn't be welcome in future. Disgusted and somewhat shocked, we left and never had the chance to tell them about the... More

I visited the Carpenter's Arms for the first time with friends this Sunday evening. Even though the four of us hadn't booked (it was rather a last minute decision) we were able to stay for a meal and were given a waiting time which was spot on when we were called to the table. I was really impressed by the... More

I called in with three friends without a booking on a busy Sunday afternoon, for a spur of the moment meal. We were happy to wait for a table (we should have booked!) and I was pleased to see a number of vegetarian choices on the menu as well as one option on the specials board. I thought the food...

We visited the Carpenter's Arms a couple of times while we were staying nearby for dinner, and were very impressed by the quality of the cooking and value for money. If you are looking for a high grade, modern cuisine type of experience this might not be the place for you. It is the kind of satisfying and generous home... More

My wife and I recently ate at the Carpenters Arms along with four friends. We all made a different selection from the menu and none of us were disappointed. The food was freshly cooked, very tasty and good value. The most enjoyable thing about all the meals was the selection of vegetables, many restaurants give the usual of garden peas,... More

Unfortunately our visit to this establishment was less than satisfactory. The service was very confusing at best and downright poor to be honest. In my opinion the food was reheated from frozen, if not then the chef has no place in a kitchen, all of the food was bland and lacked flavour. For example my wife's white wine and mushroom... More
