Lovely pub, finished to a great standard in a great location - beautiful village. Nice garden area and court yard for sunny days. Good selection of drinks. I was however disappointed by the food - it's very average.

The small office Christmas expedition for dinner went here this year. It is newly refurbished and by a team that has also got another country pub that is highly regarded. This was the best Christmas meal process and event I have been to. The day went very smoothly; the waiting staff were busy with all the parties in but maintained... More

We hadn't visited the sondes arms for a few months but I'm pleased to say the quality and good service was as good as ever. We really enjoyed the Sunday carvery. Generous helping of roast beef and pork and a great choice of vegtables . We shared a crumble and custard which was good but the crumble a little soggy.... More

Ignore the local press, this place offers good home cooked food at reasonable prices and a good selection of beers. We went with some friends who thoroughly enjoyed it.

I guess most people are aware of the problems The Sonde's Arms had in the past. As we didn't visit at that time I can't comment on how accurate the reports were but all I can say is I would have no difficulty in recommending it to anyone now. We have had the mid-week and Sunday carvery, starters and desserts.... More

The Sondes Arms provides a superb freshly cooked self-service roast dinner, with a choice of meats in a well-decorated, comfortable restaurant, where you can bring all the family. If you don't want a roast, there is a fairly basic menu, but again the dishes are well-cooked. The starter portions are of large. If you want a well-cooked home-from-home meal in... More

We had a table booked, and the pub was extremely busy and the staff were very accommodating and friendly as a few extras from our walking group wanted to stay and have lunch aswell. I am a vegetarian so i had... More
