We had a Monday lunch here with 2 friends. Charming Pub and food was great. It was not busy but we waited so long for our food. We would never return at a weekend or bank holiday. The kitchen and staff struggled to cope on a quiet Monday lunch service. Having said that the waitress was very pleasant . Such... More

One of the local places we have always wanted to try and to be honest, a little disappointed. After taking our drinks order it then took absolutely ages to arrive. Whilst the food was good, again, service was very slow and we were kept waiting a very long time, left to our own devices and trying to get the attention... More

So I visited The Hoddington Arms last night with my wife, sister-in-law and brother-in-law. My wife and I had been here a few times but not for about a year now. We'd been very impressed with the place and the food so being that our guests had never been here, we really waxed lyrical about the place and they were... More

Had been meaning to come here for a while and so pleased we did. Very cosy country pub, especially as it was pouring outside and they had the woodburners lit. Friendly and knowledgable staff and the service was excellent. Particularly recommend the venison which was beautifully cooked. Celeriac puree lovely and fluffy and the red cabbage full of flavour and... More

Although not a regular to The Hoddington Arms I have been a few times over the last couple of years, the most recent being last week and as usual enjoyed a most pleasant time with good, creative and wholesome food that you would expect in a top pub. I then happened to look at Tripadvisor and saw the last 3... More

Really unwelcoming place. We sat down and had to wait 15 mins for are drinks order to be taken! They weren't even that busy. That was just the beginning. It was my Daughters birthday and it was ruined by coming here. Waited 50 Mins for the starters, really wasn't worth the wait, over complicated menu, tasted bland and boring. Main... More

We enjoyed a super evening at the Hoddington Arms where Grey Wacke wine hosted a wine tasting dinner. The wines were exceptional, enjoyed over dinner, beautifully served in a warm and relaxing atmosphere. I really think this pub has really got it right.
