I have been a local going here for years, loved the fact it was close and could always get a good meal. The twice I have been here since the new management have taken over has been awful, the landlord just ignored us there was no one to be served apart from us, he carried on his conversation for over...

I asked for one of the specials, which wasn't available, so instead asked for the pork shank (also a special). Instead, I got lamb shank with awful mashed potato (almost certainly powdered) and carrots (almost certainly frozen) that had been cooked to within millimetre of their life. Disappointing considering the price of the food. The service was good and friendly.... More

We met at the pub last month and had a less-than-perfect experience. The food last month was not great, and served slowly. Prices were, and are, very reasonable. This month, the food was much improved and service far sharper. Having read previous reviews, it seems that the new managers may have experienced a few teething problems; if so, they are... More

Just come back from lovely weekend in Blockley and went to this pub on a number of occasions. Great local pub that is very dog friendly (we have 2 golden retrievers). Landlord David was very good and made sure the dogs had water and a bag of scratchings! Locals also make you feel welcome. Great place to lose a couple... More

Both David and Freya made us all feel very welcome and the service was excellent. All the staff were extremely attentive to our needs and David kept the group going by placing nibbles on the bar! They are both making a huge effort to make sure Blockley keeps an essential amenity. Thank you.

Proper pub food and good Ales served by very friendly staff. Good wine list as well. New owner since beginning of October and they have created a very warm Atmosphere. Couldn't do enough to cater for our twin grandchildren aged 3 1/2. Even the dogs were looked after with treats at the end of the meal specially delivered by the... More

Having been a regular at the western over the years & seen a number of new owners come and go, David isbquite simply the worst yet, I'm unable to comment on Freya, not a patch on the previous landlady Gail. The staff that have been there previously were lovely as usual but unfortunately did not make up for the pompus... More

Whilst with 3 friends on a walking holiday in the Cotswolds, we stopped at the Great Western Arms for lunch. We were greeted by a very friendly and helpful waitress who served us rich tasty home made Stilton and broccoli soup with masses of warm crusty bread. We did not order drinks so she asked us if we would like... More
