After reading some other reviews - I wonder if we experienced the food on a particularly bad night. However, as we had a small doggy with us we were obliged to eat in the bar next to the pool table. After ordering main courses at around 8:10pm the food eventually arrived at 9:15pm - it wasn't worth the wait. Very... More

We looked online an saw a fantastic menu and chose eating here over going to Morton on marsh however we turned up and the menu was completely different not even slightly similar to what we had seen. We had soup which was a bit bland but the steak was delicious and really enjoyed it. Small but comfortable and very easy... More

Small friendly pub serving up good wholesome food. Your typical pub grub cooked well and at reasonable prices, (price range £8-£13). The kitchen is very accommodating and will taylor most meals to suit. If you want chips with your chicken, it's on the menu, but if you prefer potatoes and veg then simply ask and it's provided. The fact that... More

My husband and I were staying in Blockley for a week and visited the Great Western Arms twice; for Sunday lunch and then for dinner. It's been recently refurbished and so has a lovely bright and welcoming atmosphere. Sunday lunch was great with lovely food and good sized portions - the staff were very accommodating and able to offer some... More

Nice, friendly place. Relaxed and easy going, helpful staff. Good home cooked food with choice of eating the restaurant or joining the locals in the bar. Well worth a visit if you are staying locally.

Ate there thi weekend. The food was good pub food presented well and very tasty. The service was poor, waited a long time for assistance at the bar, asked the waitress for sauce which never arrived. I will return though and give a second chance.

Called in on spec, staff lovely and friendly, only wanted something light so chose to have sanwiches. Not a huge selection but the bread was fresh (and warm), the french fries hot and the salad was great. Would go again if in the area. The decor is a bit dated but we didnt go there for that, went for the... More

Given few choices in Blockely, we were disenchanted with flies at the entrance, and even more lingering in stairway to the toilets. Disappointed that on our one Sunday evening in England, they were out of Sunday Roast. Had pies instead one of which was watery, the other without much beef. Vegetables were gray and withered. Restaurant furniture needs a good... More

I have had a few meals here now and all the meals have been very good and the best thing is all I have had are homemade. All the staff make you welcome and make you feel like your home. The chilli is very good and you can tell it's homemade. I know Gail and all her team work hard... More
