Description: A real old British pub with excellent pub food, All home cooked and made on the premises from as much organic and locally sourced produce as possible,including great vegetarian and vegan menus. There are Two great open log fires, and a great selection of real ales. A busy local customer base and a super friendly landlord. A bit off the beaten track so not too much passing trade. Which is a shame. Worth going just to say hello to the landlord's mad friendly Jack Russel terrier and his speed of light tail. Excellent beer and wine selection.

“Big thumbs up”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

This is one of our favourite pubs in gloustershire , we have visited a few times and on every occasion the food has been excellent , there are always lots of different choices for myself and my wife even though i am a vegan and she is a vegetarian . The lanlord always accommodates for our needs even if that would mean changing items on the menu, on our last visit I was really pleased to see that they now have vegan beers and wines. Full credit to everybody who works there and making feel comfortable and relaxed. I'm looking forward to my next visit already.

“perfect day out with the children”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013

i visited this pub last week the food was excellent and very reasonably priced with huge portions. We could choose any main course as a childs meal for our children. The lanlord and landlady were extremely helpful and friendly. Nothing was any bother. This pub in my opinion is well worth a visit and we will be returning to the beautiful village of miserden especially the carpenters arms.

“The carpenters Arms in Miserden.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

We have been to this pub in the beautiful village of Miserden many many times as it is the atmosphere that we really enjoy and the land lord and his wife have been very helpful telling us what is available in the area including lovely walks into the adjoining parks.
We have always had lovely home made meals and have bought our friends back and they in turn have bough their friend to this little .English pub in the middle of such lovely countryside.
I do enjoy their vegetarian meals and it is lovely to have quite a range of meals, while my husband always enjoys the fish and chips, or the pate
|Kevin and Debbie do a lot of fundraising for the community and that is great for the sprite.
Well done Carpenters arms until next time, Thank you for the good times.

“Fantastic evening”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2013

We have been to the Carpenters Arms on several occasions and always had good food, good atmosphere and good company with Kevin and Debbie, we love going to the Saturday night karaoke sometimes as these are always great fun. Last night we went along to a ticketed acoustic night, we had a superb steak and brilliant entertainment from Chris who sang with his acoustic guitar and knew a multitude of songs, Kevin is doing evenings like this once a month and we have gone onto his list. For £15 per ticket plus drinks this was the best night out we'd had in a long time.
Visit this pub and experience for yourself you will NOT be disappointed.
