Been visiting this pub for over 24 years in various circumstances. This time for lunch with my partner. Previously family dining, romantic meAl and meal with friends. All round good value for money dining for families, couple and friends meeting for a catch up meal. Excellent pub food and fantastic value for money!

We called into the five arches on the" off chance." My fish and chips meal was a good size and quality. One of the group had a lamb dinner which they said was very tasty with good portions. All meals were decent pub meals at competitive prices.

Couldn't help feeling a bit disappointed with the meal. I had fish and chips and wife had ale pie. It was hot and plenty of it but somehow lacking flavour. Pub was fine if a bit cramped. Music was on but a continual replay of music from the 60s . Wouldn't go back TBH - probably better for lunch time... More

We visited this pub on Sat night as there is no Stag or Hen parties allow, and found we liked it! The staff nice and friendly and great music piped through. We ate once and it was very tasty and well presented. Staff very nice and friendly.

Music isn't overly loud, staff are friendly and clientele are generally older which suited us as the nearby bar was full of youngsters doing karaoke. Only had drinks but prices reasonable. No dogs allowed in this pub.

It was my birthday on Friday so we decided to eat at the Five Arches as they do a fabulous Sunday lunch. Were able to use the upstairs restaurant which was excellent. I had scampi and my husband had the Guinness steak pie both meals were very filling and delicious.
