We visited on a Monday night, restricted menu but still a good choice. The food was excellent, the service excellent and the landlord made us really welcome. Loved the restaurant decor which was modern, bright, clean and very tasteful. The pub sold hooky ales which again we would highly recommend trying, also excellent choice of gin and mixers.

Having worked our way through the menus, I am happy to report that every meal has been a culinary delight and staff always friendly and chatty. Whether it's a quick bite... More

We visited this popular pub on two occasions and can recommend both the food and the beer. The staff were also very efficient and the pub is dog friendly. We enquired about dinner (accompanied by the dog if possible) and a table in the main bar area (instead of the restaurant) was reserved for us without any fuss, which was... More

We didn't use the pub for dining but made two visits for a drink with our family. Excellent Hook Norton beers on tap and a great selection of other drinks were available.

A charming pub with a friendly welcome. Traditional surroundings, well maintained beer served at the right temperature. Could benefit from dimming the lights but other than that a great pub - will return :)

After a good walk out of Chipping Campden up around Dovers Hill we retired to the Great Western Arms at Blockley for lunch on the recommendation of one of the party who had visited the pub recently. It was quiet but the welcome was warm, the beer (Hook Norton Ale) was excellent and the food, well, top notch for a... More

Blockley only has two pubs, the other one looked like a non starter, so we pinned our hopes on The Great Western, when renting a cottage in the village this weekend. We were not disappointed. Good, tasty food & lovely service. Enough diners to create a nice atmosphere tho it could be improved if they dimmed the lights a bit... More

Stayed in a cottage in the centre of Blockley for a weekend and was recommended this venue by owner. It was in striking distance and we couldn't be bothered to go elsewhere after a hard days hiking. We sat and ate in the main  bar. Was made to feel welcome and good service on food and drink. Menu was good... More

Called in midweek whilst on business in the area, enjoyed the grub so much, went back the night after. The food is sourced from local providers and cooked to a high standard. Had the local sausages one night and the burger the next. Extremely tasty and substantial. Prices relative for the area and great service. Recommended and will visit again... More
