Met up for a family get together lunch after a dog walk, dogs were welcomed and sat with us. Staff were friendly and helpful. We all enjoyed our food which included four vegetarian meals and a vegan option.

A family Sunday lunch was very good indeed in the bar of this lovely old pub which has maintained its character over a few recent ups and downs. Now looking forward to going back on a regular basis. The sirloin of beef was very tasty, cooked to perfection and served with a medley of veg including heritage carrots. My Bloody... More

Arrived in the afternoon. Checked in and chilled out til we went downstairs to the bar. Busy with it being a friday night. We had a few beers and then ordered some burgers for dinner. Very yummy. Happy with our choice and an easy walk upstairs to bed!

First time we have eaten here in recent times but will definitely be back. Very good food and very efficient and accurate service. The starters were excellent and the main courses were also very good quality and also piping hot. The roast potatoes were a particular highlight. For 4 people with several drinks, our bill was around £100 so extremely... More

Being a fan of the traditional British dish - beer battered fish and chips - and seeing it on the Bathurst Arms menu I got in contact online with pubs Manager Poppy (Hi, Poppy!) to make sure that they are open on Sunday and are serving my favorite dish of all unhealthy fried varieties which she confirmed as well as...

We have driven past this pub for years and have never been in, so yesterday we drove there specifically for lunch as the sun was shining and the pub always looks so lovely on a sunny day. The staff behind the bar were very friendly and helpful. We ordered two chicken club sandwiches on granary bread and left to sit... More

Went for Sunday lunch with the family. Beautiful setting and garden, traditional pub decor inside - not stylish but cosy and friendly service. Nice beer on tap. We ordered whitebait to start which was good, but the lamb shank and beef roasts were very school dinners - the gravy was jelly like and tasteless and the veg overcooked. The roast... More

Beautiful setting. Disappointing lunch. Drinks: Coke poured from an open, warm bottle behind the bar. Sandwiches: £6 with chips - the going rate these days in a nice looking gastro pub, but you get one slice of average bread, cut in half with no butter, filling on top. High profit margin in the short term, but losing out on future... More

Went to the Bathurst in May and had a fabulous meal. Went last week and under new management they only do sandwiches as they do not have a chef.

Hi Marianne, Thank you for taking the time to write a review. The Bathurst Arms changed ownership after a period of closure in June - hence the lack of chef whilst we got everything back up and running. We are pleased to say we now have a varied menu, all homemade with locally sourced ingredients (as well as a chef!)... More
