Came here on a Friday night as a party of 4 plus dog. The staff are always friendly and helpful and go out of their way to make you comfortable. The food is good quality and there is a steak special. The rustic fries are also yummy and definitely worth a try. The desserts are reasonably sized and there's always... More

Apart from Google Maps showing this place in the A40 which is misleading, the pub is easy to find! We met up with some friends for lunch and the staff were friendly and helpful, and the warm atmosphere made for a pleasant stop. Some good ales on tap always works for me. The menu is reasonable for a pub, and... More

Visited the carpenters arms for the first time in years. Couldn't fault a thing. From the service to the drink to the food. Nothing was too much trouble for the landlady or the landlord. Definitely will be back. Very dog friendly too x a massive "THANK YOU" xxx

I had the fish and chips - oven chips and garden peas which were nothing exciting. The fish was very good though, soft and juicy flesh and crisp batter. Not a big portion though. The waitress had a nightmare evening and was very clumsy - spilling beer over my mother's top, dropping ketchup on my brother's jeans, making a racket... More

Hello Jamhunt Many thanks for your review after your recent visit. We are glad you enjoyed your food, beer and the dart board. I am however very sorry for the inconvenience caused to you, I believe it was your mother who came in the next day and spoke to myself regarding an overcharge, which I dealt with. I was unaware...

We were a party of 7 out for a Sunday Roast and were welcomed by a very friendly landlord. We ordered our pre meal drinks and were directed to the restaurant area. The restaurant staff were very pleasant, smiling and courteous. We ordered our food and we all enjoyed it immensely. We will certainly be visiting this establishment again.

We decided to have lunch here after reading the reviews. We called in on spec and were able to get a table for two, and the menus arrived very quickly, as did our drinks order. The menu is limited, so do not expect pages and pages of options. This place keeps it simple and does it very well. We had... More

Spur of the moment choice on a Sunday - usual places full and busy. Very accommodating- squeezed us and the dog in. Straightforward Sunday roast: good service and value for money. Excellent vegetables and trimmings.

We stopped here for lunch on the way to Evesham. Just out of the busy Burford town area so not a problem to park, although the car park was being refurbished so it did make the pub look closed for business. Francesca and Danny were both very friendly and helpful. Importantly the food was nicely cooked, very tasty and efficiently... More
