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 .

As our local we try to support this independent country pub as often as possible. Recent visit on a Friday night and although the pub was busy with food and drinking customers the staff were attentive and helpful! Meals were served after a small wait which is understandable with the business of the best place and when they arrived were... More

Visited the Blacksmiths Arms for the first time recently for what we imagined would be a good Sunday family lunch experience. …Have to say that this was sadly not the case on any level! Firstly, the table that we where allocated was opposite the open log fire (which looked to be very inviting) but the overall feeling throughout the pub... More

Arrived miday not full but we're offered a table but we were told it would take up to an hour to take our order this seemed to be the land lord selective choice of customers very off putting. Went to Grasby Cross Keys even though they were expecting the dinning room full we had a great meal in 15 minutes.

Firstly, a very welcoming and friendly service was noticeable, only a couple of staff serving but they were always around and willing to help. The atmosphere was great, they have a lovely open fire in a light and open room, however it still has a very traditional feel. The food was fantastic, generous portion sizes, cooked very well, nice and... More
