“Tucked away but worth finding.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2014

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.

“Great pub with great food.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2014 via mobile

Great location, friendly staff, nice landlord, pub grub done really well with good choice of nice beer with lovely selection of wine.

Only negative is nothing to do for the kids but for couples and friends who want a good honest place to enjoy an evening with decent drinks, brilliant.

Will defiantly go again.

“Great Pub, Great setting, the owners are lovely.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2014

We stopped here for a Father's day lunch, with the family and two dogs. The owners made us very welcome and made a real fuss of our pups.
The food was tasty and they even kept one meal warm for a late arriver.
Good food selection and great selection of Ales.
It's a little out of the way, but well worth a trip out.

“Relaxing Pub”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2014

Great pub hidden away in Burnham beaches. Cosy inside in the winter but it also has a great pub garden in the summer. Plenty of ales to choose from when a great out menu.

Ill been returning for sure!

“Steak Special - And it was Indeed Special”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2014

We have been to the Blackwood Arms many time and always enjoyed it but last nights meal was particularly good.

We both chose one of the specials, Debbie had the dressed crab which she was really pleased with that.

I chose the fillet steak, served with fondant potatoes, asparagus, wild mushrooms and red wine jus. Now that alone sounds great but the chef surpassed himself with how well it was cooked with my usual challenge kid having it cooked well done. I.e. No pink/blood. It was stunning flavour, moist and the chef explained how he had cooked it afterwards so as to avoid the usual risk of it turning out as a hockey puck. Superb approach and one I will try at home.

If you have not tried Blackwood Arms then make the effort. Sean and the team never fail to impress

Cheers,

Campbell and Debbie
