We went to The Blackwwod Arms as a family (including the dog) for Mrs Rippydog's birthday and I'm glad we did. The pub is well off the beaten track but it was well worth finding. The young lady that served us was lovely and couldn't have been more helpful. The setting is idyllic (it helped that the sun was shining) and we could've esily spent much longer just sitting and taking it all in. Sadly, we opted to go home and watch England being beaten by Uruguay instead. The food was excellent, I had the burger which was great and with cheese on it that you could actually taste. Mrs Rippydog had the mushrooms which elicited much oohing and aahing. The kids had a ham. egg and chips between them (extra plate provided, no dramas) and the dog sat there looking hopeful. She was disappointed as all plates were returned to the kitchen empty. One tiny bump was that my pint of Guinness was served in a lipstick coated glass but, again, this was dealt with and replaced with absolutely no fuss and a genuine apology. The food along with a Guinness, Appletise and two Fruit Shoots was for a very reasonable £37.05.
Genuinely can't recommend this place enough and we will be back. I'm almost looking forward to the winter just to see what it looks like with the fire on.
