We came here on Saturday to treat my Mother-in-Law as we had a Tesco Clubcard voucher that we exchanged. I am so happy we did as it was lovely. The staff are very friendly and attentive. The pub itself is a classic style. To start...I ordered the Courgette and Roasted Pepper stack, sitting on top of the crispest Potato Rosti. My Wife and her Mum ordered the Baked Camembert to share. For mains I ordered the Mixed Grill which had so much meat and what I liked was the addition of Black Pudding and Fried Egg. Both my Wife and her Mum ordered the Steak and Chips. No complaints from any of us, just compliments to the Chef.More

The manager was absalutley wonderful. I dropped off a big 8 and 0 baloon's to celebrate mums 80th birthday, the table he had put us at was perfect with lots of sparkly lights around, the table was all set with the balloons and banner and...off I went to pick mum up. On my way to pick mum up the manager rang me to advise that the no 8 balloon had exploded, I was very upset and the manager was fantastic, he contacted the balloon shop where I had just picked them up from and went to collect another they had got ready for him. When I walked in with Mum the table and balloon's were all there set up looking exactly as I had left it. The food, staff and the whole experience was fantastic. Such a lovely place, I would definitely reccomend this restraunt for any occasion 😃More

Not eaten here for a while but was motivated to come after having a snack in doggy area a few weeks ago. Ambiance, service, prices and quality are excellent value for price paid. Jade and Nat were very friendly and helpful. Will return soon.

We had late Sunday lunch, had to eat in the bar area as we had two dogs with us. To be honest it was a wee bit cramped in this area & people were waiting for tables despite rest of pub being quiet. Reckon the...“doggy” area needs increasing. Had trio of roasts which was nice, not a lot of meat though. Staff okay, but it sort of felt they had had a busy lunch & they were taking a bit of a breath, which could explain why the service was no more than average.More

We have been coming here for years now and always (apart from covid) book a table for bonfire night. The food is always of a good standard and the staff are lovely and welcoming. This is the first year I’ve seen a special bonfire night...menu and I was not disappointed. The food was really lovely and just the right amount. The staff are just great and add to the cosy friendly atmosphere. The fact they allow dogs and still manage to keep the place so clean is a credit to them. The toilets are clean and they offer essentials for free which is a nice touch. We will definitely be back it’s our go to pub for a relaxed family meal.More

Seated and served quickly by friendly staff. The food came promptly and was absolutely lovely. The meals were filling so much so that after a starter and a main we could not manage a dessert. Thankyou Jordan and Sarah your service was excellent.

Not been to the Blundell Arms for a few years. Decor and style is very nice. Food is good. Only let down is the service. While on our visit we were not offered once if we would like another drink. I had to ask on...3 occasions for another drink. If the restaurant Was busy I would understand but it was only 4pm and was quite. We would visit again but service does need improvingMore
