The starter we had was disappointing. The steak is delicious and there was enough to eat, but the pub needs a revamp .The toilets are quite bad I would have eaten if I had seen the toilets first.

Called in with some friends after hearing good things. Turned out to be a good call. Lovey little pub, good food, village pub atmosphere, excellent beer (and wine, not that I was drinking) 4 of us all had a 3 course meal. Crispy mushrooms followed by lasagne. Ended with cheese board. All delicious and with good service. Will defiantly be... More

Truly one of the best Sunday lunches I've had. Exceptional starters and the roast beef came as huge tender slices with perfectly cooked veg, delicious. My husband had fantastic lamb. Absolutely impressed by the standard of food and a gorgeous pub in a beautiful location. The service was excellent, the staff couldn't do enough for you. Definitely in my top... More

On appearance both meals were overcooked, cold and burnt. Once we had complained a member of staff took away the meals and offered us the menu... More

We booked a table last minute and we were not disappointed. The menu is varied and there was a good choice of specials. Prices are mid range - £15 per head. There were four adults and we ordered - sausage and mash (you get to pick your sausage, potato and pea type). We also ordered the farmers grill, lasagne and... More

The Blacksmiths Arms at Rothwell is a country pub that I have passed many times on my travels and always thought that looks nice. As we all know looks can be deceiving. Cold and inhospitable (May 2016 Saturday evening) on arrival at 2015 advised 'if you want food you'll have to order straight away the kitchens closing'. Had main dish... More

Have very happy memories of the blacksmith arms , unfortunately it didn't live up to my expectations . Not very friendly landlord probably will not call again .But I don't think he will be bothered about that .
