This gem is surrounded by beautiful grounds, the atmosphere was superb. The staff were friendly enough and the drinks pretty cheap! The food was amazing- plenty of choice with vegetables, sides and sauces. I had the trio of meat- although tasty I wish I had gone for just the beef as that was the... read more

Just ate here tonight after booking half hour before. We both had Calvert which was superb. This is the second time I have eaten here and the first time was just as excellent. Actually staying about ten miles from this place and was prepared to drive past many other restaurants in order to guarantee my partner a great evening meal... More

The food here is excellent. And the food here has been excellent in the past. However, service was slow and although staff were lovely this needs looking at. We arrived at 2:30 and didn't get away until almost 5:30. Very long gaps between courses. It was busy, but not *that* busy.

This was by far the best carvery I've ever eaten! I wouldn't normally choose to eat at a carvery restaurant but The Coopers Arms website and other Tripadvisor comments convinced me to book a table for 20 for our family's Sunday lunch. The food was delicious, the staff were friendly and professional and the setting was delightful. As a large... More

Frank Zappa, in a song from the movie score '200 Motels' has a line in one of the songs 'Lord have mercy on the people in England, and the terrible food these people must eat' - i do not know if he referred to carvery lunches at English pubs, but in any event he was a bit over the top.... More

Has adapted to the different market after the closure of the other village pub. Serves a wide variety of ales, even some of their own designs, large range of spirits, ciders etc. Welcomes in all types, even if you're muddy after riding or being in the fields. The bar is very down to earth but not unwelcoming to non locals.... More

I came in for food with my family. And after the extremely long wait. Not only were the staff unapologetic , they were rude when the food was not up to standard and two of the orders were wrong. When we wanted to complain. There was apparently no one available to speak to us. I will not be dining here... More

Over the years the standard of the food has been maintained, and the quality of the meat, in particular, is excellent. The range of vegetables is very good too, but our only regret is that there is never room for desserts! The staff are most helpful and pleasant, and will always help with bringing drinks and food to the table... More
