Great atmosphere and welcoming friendly staff. The food choice wasa little limited for me as a vegetarian but my husband was in his element. I settled on fish and chips. The portion was huge, the fish thick and tasty and the chips crisp on the outside and fluffy on the inside. I usually choice a seafood dish so I would... More

This is a great country pub to relax and enjoy the atmosphere. The staff are exceptional and the food is amazing, steak and triple cooked chips is second to none.

The food here is really good, excellent menu choices and the food is all cooked fresh to order. Staff are really lovely and on a sunny day, nothing better than sitting in the garden.

We were looking for somewhere to take decerning visiting family and turned to Tripadvisor for reviews and ratings and although we have lived within twenty minutes drive from the Hoddington Arms it being (slightly) off the beaten track we'd never actually visited. I felt the lunch menu contained not many but enough choices (well of the five of us dining... More

Wow, what a meal we've just had! We actually won a Facebook competition for a Chateaubriand and bottle of Malbec which my husband and I decided to use on my birthday - cheapskate some might say :-) We were greeted with a warm and friendly host who took us to our table. A lovely table for 2 awaited us. The... More

The mantra for this place is that less is definitely more. On first look of the menu it seemed limited, with plenty of seafood (my wife hates fish). But we gave it a go, and I'm really pleased we did. I'm the kind of foodie who likes unusual cuts. There were plenty available, like Skate wings and lamb breast. I... More

Friendly booking experience, asked about any special dietary requirements which was good, quick confirmation email and another with a reminder the day before our booking. On arrival and throughout staff were friendly and helpful. Also answered our questions about different things of the menu helpfully. All four of us were very happy with our food, we all had different things... More
