Took friends ( down from Manchester ) here on a Saturday night. We were greeted by very friendly staff where nothing seemed too much trouble. The food was excellent and service was first class. A good varied menu and some very good beers on offer. Would certainly recommend this pub.

We were on our way back yesterday evening from a lovely break in Hopton and needed to find somewhere to eat. We came across this restaurant and being as it was nearly 8 o'clock we stopped and hoped they had some food left as we were very hungry. We both had the pork Sunday roast and we expected small portions... More

I visited this pub while passing on the way to Wotton to visit relatives. The food is amazing and a good selection of beers. I had the full rack of ribs and if you have a big appetite its the meal for you, (best ribs i've ever tasted ). The menu is very reasonably priced with a varied selection, and... More

We hadn't been here for years and it used to be a pub with small menu. Now re-furbished with a large restaurant, good beer. My wife had lasagne I had steak burger. Both well cooked and presented. We will go again.

We dined at the Carpenters Arms on several evenings during our stay in a nearby cottage and were bowled over by the quality, quantity and freshness of the food and the very friendly and helpful staff. There were eight of us in our party and nothing was too much trouble. One of our party had a birthday during our stay... More

Nice and clean and well-presented.Staff friendly.We ordered at the bar as the lady was on her own. We ordered the barbecue ribs,nachos, and wedges to share and my son had a panini.Food was properly cooked (not microwaved), and there was plenty of it. Great Value for money

This is the second time we've been here on a Saturday evening for a family meal. The staff are great and the food is brilliant. We booked a table for eight and had plenty of space. The meal was unhurried and we were not hassled, as so many restaurants do, to finish and leave. We had a wonderful evening and... More

We cycled to The Carpenter's Arms for lunch and found that the food is of a good standard and there is a good range of drinks on offer. The restaurant isn't somewhere I would visit for a special occasion but as a stop-off lunch, it served us well.

Helpful and friendly staff but thats as good as it gets. Ham egg and chips difficult to get wrong but very dissapointed as I was expecting crisp fresh chips instead I got cold floppy frozen chips and some very dodgy tasting mayonnaise. Ham and mushroom pasta for a child would have fed two adults if it had tasted nice. The... More
