The owner who is front of house is very welcoming and efficient. We visit the Butchers Arms on a regular basis and have never been disappointed. On very busy nights you do feel a bit... More

..Even on what was one of the quietest days of the post Christmas period the owners did not compromise on heating or the freshness and high standard of the food. Being such an ancient pub it must be difficult to keep it so warm. Our lunch, as usual, was first class. My ham salad was so fresh and beautifully presented... More
