I can't praise the thomas arms enough for the fabulous afternoon and evening they gave 49 11yr olds leaving primary school. The manageress and staff were fantastic and so accommodating with changing times (twice! Due to limo lateness!) changing food orders and providing extras last minute and giving us the freedom to have loads of different activities going on all... More

Went in for a cup of coffee, which I might add, for the price of it was disgusting. The manageress was not in a good mood that day, I don,t think, as her attitude was not very nice. Since then I have heard she is like that all the time. Does not impress me.

Bit disappointed with afternoon tea. When I originally booked it was for 3 but a friend decided to join us when we arrived I explained this only to be told that chef had only catered for 3 people and couldn't make anymore sandwiches but would put an extra scone. As we were so shocked by this we agreed. They charged... More

My partner and I visited here the other day and although we hadn't booked and it was quite busy we managed to get a table. You have to order food and pay by the bar, which I don't like doing and is the only reason why I gave them four stars not five. I had the spicy bean burger and... More

Went to the Thomas Arms for a works function. Paid £13.99 for a plate of lasagne and chips that was only worth about five pounds. Fair potion of lasagne with a very small potion of chips and a spoonful of peas. I'm sure the surly waitress who served me was counting every chip and pea. As an alternative to the... More

We joined my parents, at the weekend, who had been staying there the whole week. The beds were so comfy, had a great night sleep and the breakfast was lush, best veggie sausages I've had! Not too far from the coast, so great location.

Lovely afternoon tea with three friends today. Lovely selection of sandwiches, cakes, scones and plenty of tea in vintage teapots; vegetarian selection was also good. Delicious. Would definitely recommend. Just enough for the four of us and plenty left over.

First thing to note was that the staff were very helpful in finding a secure place to leave our bikes overnight. Fortunately it had been dry all day and the bikes were all clean as they ended up in the Ballroom. Rooms were reasonably spacious and facilities were fine for an overnight stay. However, our rooms fronted onto the main... More

Hi figary, Thank you for your review, however I must say I could not describe it as heavy traffic, as I live on site and sleep soundly every night as every room in hotel is double glazed, I would probably use that phrase to describe heavy traffic on a motorway and in this day and age its pretty hard not...
