We booked to go to the Butlers Arms after taking my 95 year old mother to the Donkey Sanctuary in Sutton Park to see the donkey she has adopted for many years. We wanted to have Sunday lunch after the visit and having looked on the internet the Butlers Arms was the one I found that served until 5pm on... More

Booked lunch for the four of us. We have eaten here many times in the evening but first time for Sunday lunch. Choices were great, good service and we all enjoyed 3 courses from the fixed price menu. It was busy so I'd recommend booking in advance if you want to eat here.

A mid week late lunch with family, and although the pub was still busy, service was swift, informative and friendly. A wide and interesting menu, we dined from the light bites menu, which provided a more than adequate choice, and was very reasonably priced . The dishes served were freshly cooked, hot and tasty. Recommended.

You won't be disappointed. Excellent staff. Good menu choices from basic pub grub to a very good A la carte. Great choices of wines, beers and spirits. Have visited this restaurant on numerous occasions and ALWAYS came away happy with the visit.

Since my wife and son were each away on this Saturday evening (28th Feb 2015) John, a close friend, suggested that we go to the Butler's Arms for an early dinner. I booked the table for 6.00 p.m. and was told that since we would be dining at that time we would receive a discount of 20% off the bill.... More

Visited with my mother who has recently had throat cancer. Sandwiches were described as chunky bread so after explaining her situation we asked if the bread could be thinner, which were told they would ask the kitchen to do but when it arrived nobody had even tried to cut it thinner. Food was ok but nothing special. Had to chase... More

Been here several times and it didn't disappoint this time. Superb warm black pudding potato and poached egg starter (a firm favourite), perfectly cooked swordfish main with noodles and peppers with just the right amount of chilli, and the surprise was a ginger panacotta with rhubarb, gorgeous! All really nicely cooked and presented. Factor in the good beer and wine... More

Visited with friends as two couples. Great atmosphere and friendly staff. Saturday night so busy. Excellent specials that actually were crossed of during the night, often means they are specials not just a gimmick Food is good with wide selection of drinks Only complaint it is a bit over priced for what it is. Have been before and would go... More
