This English pub stands on a corner in the delightful town of Blockley, snuggled into the Cotswolds We stayed in a BnB just 100 Yards from the pub and it became our local. Once we tried it the once we didn't want to go anywhere else. The clientele who also dropped in for a drink and a meal obviously enjoyed... More

I went with my Sister and her family. All of our meals were delicious. The service was good. They have a nice outside deck for those nice Blockley evenings,

We were staying close to this pub,and unfortunately we did not eat there until our next to last night. If we had known how good it was we would have eaten there much more. The fish and chips were the best we have had in England. The prices were very reasonable and food was great.

Both my wife and i were passing through and stopped off here for dinner. The couple running the pub were super lovely and cared not only to our needs but our new born baby. Food was lush, filling and kept us going... Its clean neat tidy and not overly priced at all. Awesome stuff, we hope to come and visit... More

We took a weekly holiday let in Blockly and dined here twice. The Arms is under new ownership and is just as perfect as it gets -- and we're from California and have been accused of being hard to please. We met both owners, David and Freya (new owners as of Oct 2014) who were welcoming, friendly, informative and perfect.... More

Good atmosphere and varied choice on the menu. I had scampi and chips, but there were more interesting choices to be had. Wine list was good too. We had a bottle of Sauvignon Blanc. We spoke to the landlord while we were there, and apparently they are going to install en-suite bedrooms, so we may well stay there sometime.

Our thanks go to David and Freya for accommodating 8 refugees from the crown. Excellent food and drinks. We spent our 2 nights eating and drinking at the Great Western Arms and were 100% satisfied with everything. Thank you
