Visited the pub on the evening of 10th July, with my wife and two children. The staff seemed friendly but we had to wait almost one hour before any of our food was brought out to us , it didn't seem to busy and what we ordered wasn't to complex. My wife had stopped me from leaving 10 minutes before... More

We called in here for a quick drink whilst driving around and was made very welcome by the owners who were in the middle of putting up flags for the football

This was our first visit to the Okeover Arms near Ashbourne. It was very busy during a Sunday lunchtime. We had booked in advance and so had a nice table in the restaurant area - but others walking in from the street were not disappointed as they could eat at other tables in the bar and outside. We arrived just... More

We go here most Sunday's for a wonderful home-cooked Carvery. The food is always top class and the atmosphere is cozy with welcoming and friendly family and staff.

Great homely food with a warm welcome. I visit this pub when myself and my girlfriend visit Ashbourne and have never been disappointed. The food is always to a great standard, their service friendly, portions ample and prices resonable. We will be sure to make many trips back in years to come as long as the owners remain in charge...
