We had dinner here last week. No wine list. Warm bottle of white wine served. Food took a long time to come and the fish and chips were inedible. I hope they sort it out because the pub has real potential

The pub has just been taken over and Sunday lunch was a complete shambles. The limited menu (and pricing) is completely different to that advertised online on their website. A one course meal took almost 3 hours and there were long waits between different meals coming out - some meals came out so late that others at our table had... More

We read the reviews on this pub and decided to go. Unfortunately we went only a few days after it had been taken over by new management so there was a limited menu. It is therefore difficult to give 5 stars as this was not a good start. Also I don't eat red meat so was very very limited in... More

We walked up the road to the pub after travelling all day. The food was good, with a decent choice, and the staff were very pleasant.

We were staying in Blockley and went down to the Great Western Arms for dinner. We were with some friends and had our infant son asleep in the pram, and our Border Terrier dog. The Publican/Chef was fantastically helpful and very accommodating. The pub had a warmth and genuine quality to it, and was filled with locals having a Saturday... More

Good honest pub food with excellent beer. Very friendly good service. So much more acceptable than eating a second night at the Crown. Nice fire to sit around should winter come on suddenly!

We've been a few times on visits to Blockley and they never fail to make strangers feel very welcome - well kept beer and a nicely refurbished feel to the place - well worth stopping off if you're passing - the food looked good too and was getting rave reviews but we didn't actually dine.
