What great service in this place...we went in here for a drink. Now for a local pub, sometimes you can feel very unwelcome and conscious of the fact that you're an outsider, but the land lady and bar staff were so lovely I could have stayed in there all night. Great prices and great people

Called into the Brickmakers Arms twice now and each time there has been a friendly welcome from the staff and a great choice of beers. Just what you hope to find in a traditional pub. Will certainly call again.

Stopped here near the end of a nice walk in the local countryside. It started to drizzle so gave us a great excuse to nip in for a pint. A lovely friendly pub with fire going in the end room. Nicely decorated and overall cosy atmosphere. I'd recommend you to stop by and give it a go. 😊

We only called in briefly for a drink with friends. However, that was sufficient to find out that the bar staff and the locals were very friendly. The beer was of good quality (hand pump draught) as well. Would certainly recommend a visit.

A proper local run by lovely people who know how to keep beer good and customers happy. Always busy and we love popping in as we pass by.

If you want a good pint (or more), a decent wine, or one of a selection of malt whiskys then pop to the Brickmakers. Think back to the days when a pub was a pub, when the landlord lived or died on his/her reputation for hospitality and quality of beer.

very much the "local" pub, so you can't help but get caught up with the people of the town/village. food was plain but excellent and comparatively cheap!

Great selection of beers, but a bit small, also don't do food, so just go for the beer, bar area a bit small so gets a bit crowded if people are sitting in front of bar..service good and well worth a visit..if down that way again would certainly call in.

Thank osram49
