Me and my wife had a weekend break in Blockley. We visited the Great Western Arms on both evenings. We drank on the first evening and ate in the restaurant on the second. The staff were very friendly and we really enjoyed the atmosphere of this friendly pub. The food was to a high standard. Would most definitely visit here... More

I was on business and this pub was within walking distance, I rarely eat at one place as it can get repetitive. This was the exception I ate here for my entire stay of 8 nights, the menu changed regularly; Monday and Tuesday night the food is prepared by a different chef and whilst still very good quality the selection...

Very friendly pub, busy, nice atmosphere, good food and great beer. We were well looked after, as was the dog who was served his own biscuits!

Having just arrived at our accommodation in Blockley we were disappointed to find the bar did not open until 5pm and being thirsty after our journey we sought out the 'local' Walking into the Great Western we were greeted by a very bubbly barmaid, Marcella. We were made to feel very welcome and at the time being the only ones... More

Clean place and able service. Just had drinks. The atmosphere was closed and not friendly ... But maybe thats par for the course locally.

6 of us visited Blockley last weekend and booked a table for Friday evening at the Great Western Arms. Our table was in a very pleasant room away from the main bar area. The service we received from all the staff was excellent. They were happy to make changes to the menu on request e.g. swapping mash for chips, doing... More

We walked to this lovely little pub and had an amazing meal. Steak and mussels were amazing! They have a very talented French chef and excellent friendly front of house staff. Great beer on tap and a varied menu. A must if you're in the area. But BOOK it's a popular place.

Two of us had a lovely evening meal here. We went to the bar first and ordered a beer and a glass of wine, they have a good range of wines to drink by the glass or bottle. We chose a table in a bright, attractive room and were given our menus. We chose cod and mussels. Both dishes were... More

We visited The Great Western Arms as we had been there for lunch last year and had enjoyed our lunch. I believe it is now under different management, if so then things are going well. We ate in the bar area as we had been for a walk with our dog in The Cotswolds and were looked after from the... More
