Great hidden gem

Beautiful location with a warm welcome! Having stumbled down a country lane we discovered the Rustic Arms and called in for some dinner.

Thought we'd try the Rustic Arms for our Sunday Lunch as it is not too far away and had some nice reviews. Glad we did. It's a family orientated place with a spacious garden for the kids to play. We just went for the food, however, and couldn't fault it. The carvery was one of the best we've had. Superb... More

We booked as we thought being a Friday night it would be busy but it wasn't. We had to wander around trying to find out where to sit as it was our first time, one of the waitresses caught our eye and ignored us and we had to ask for help. She was then going to seat us at a... More

Hi We thank you for your review. Yes I can remember you arriving on Friday night if I re-call its was around 8.30. I will agree with you it is a large pub and if you have never been before you will not know your way around. Most people do go to the bar to enquiry and the bar staff... More

Visited here due to its reviews and being very close to relatives that we had visited. Have to say my family and I felt a little under pressure to finish our meal as the staff and management were preparing for an evening function. There chefs could be heard from the dining area being very boisterous in the kitchens. Having said... More

We have been visiting the Rustic Arms for many years and have always found it a very pleasant and had a great atmosphere. We have taken the children and dog quite often on a weekend and always sat in the lovely beer garden overlooking the lake. However, upon visiting the beer garden this evening, we very much doubt we will... More

This large and welcoming pub seems to be in the middle of nowhere and yet was full of parents and kids and serious drinkers on a warm Friday evening. If the 'kid' bit puts you off it should not as there is plenty to keep them occupied outside whilst the serious eating [and drinking] continues inside. The pub is large... More
