Location and contact

The Molesworth Arms re-open for business in Dec 2015 after been shut up for 2 years! Our simple aim & ethos was to run a friendly pub that consistently serves good food, local ales/ciders, quality wines in a comfortable & relaxing environment. We build close ties with our supplies & help generate business within the local economy. Our meat & fish are sourced from local suppliers & we now have a organic poly tunnel where we grow as much of our own fruit, vegetables & herbs. All our dishes are prepared & made from scratch in our kitchen by our Head Chef Mark who has a passion for interesting, but un-complicated, country style cooking. We have our own on-site smokery & during the summer months

Was greeted by the friendly owners and staff, which instantly set us up into an even better holiday mood. The interior is brightly lit, and well decorated, and comfortable chairs! The food was fantastic, and really needed someone to wheel barrow us home. The atmosphere...More
