We decided to visit on Saturday (21st) as we've not visited for a few years, and what a pleasant visit it was! We were only going for a drink, but decided to try a meal too. I went for the hunters chicken and my partner had the burger and we both thoroughly enjoyed our meals. All staff were polite and... More

Just returned from a fabulous 'couples' menu and would strongly recommend it. Paid £30 in total for a gorgeous 3 course meal and a carafe of wine. Excellent value, friendly staff and lovely atmosphere. Would certainly recommend and will be returning with a couple of friends.

After stumbling across the Rustic Arms when lost whilst walking last week, we were heartened by the homeliness of the place and the friendliness of the staff, so we decided to travel back from York this week (not covered in mud this time) to sample the food. It was well worth the return visit. We were aware of a waiting... More

Still sat in the establishment having eaten what could loosely be described as a carvery. The value for money is disgraceful having being served up two tiny pieces of beef and gammon. The chef was not prepared to offer more when this was mentioned. To be perfectly honest I ended up not being overly bothered as the meat was tough... More

We visited this charming village pub tucked away on a small side road on the outskirts of East Hardwick. As our first visit we were very apprehensive on arrival but was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the very reasonably priced food. We had the carvery which was very good with a wide selection of fresh vegetables - none of... More
