Description: Country Pub serving great food! Maybe it's the warm northern welcome, but that would be too obvious, or perhaps it's the curiously eclectic mix of the ancient and contemporary. It probably has a lot to do with the food, and the beer... Whatever it is that makes the Blacksmiths Arms such a favourite with it's regulars, you need to come and experience it first hand. Come see our array menus including a Gluten Free menu, come sample our beers with many guest beers changing regularly, and soak up the wonderful Blacksmiths Arms ambiance... We now also have Baby Changing facilities! We now do Wedding meals, Christening parties and any occasion you might want us to cover...! Call and discuss your requirements and let us give you the occasion you want!

“Family visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2012

We booked a party of 8 into the 'Hammers' for early evening meal. What a lovely friendly welcome and nothing too much trouble for the staff. The barman (landlord?) was very friendly and enjoyed a bit of crack pulling one of his many fine ales. The food we had was exceptional and great value and good sized portions. You will not be disappointed by a visit to the Hammers..

“very good pub food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2012

really good value - quality home cooked 'pub' food.
Everything is home made - there is no microwaved pre frozen crap here just good honest freshly made food. Nice atmosphere and friendly staff. Good beers as well.
