Had a lovely meal with friends at the Butchers Arms last night. Our waitress Laura, was lovely and other staff were very welcoming and attentive. The food was excellent. Would recommend the sole which was cooked to perfection, very tasty and plenty of it. This was an experience to be repeated. Another visit is definitely on the cards.

Dined at the Butchers again this week interested to see if my previous visit which I thoroughly enjoyed was a 'one off' . How wrong could I be ! The Thai curry was top notch , the Taylor's Landlord on top form and the service , something mentioned by so many reviewers , was again faultless. Keep up the good... More

Had lunch at the Butchers today and really enjoyed the food. The service was very friendly and the two course lunch was excellent value and inventive. Fish gougon starter was top notch accompanied with a nicely dressed salad and harissa mayo. Toulouse sausage main with puy lentils was really meaty with tasty lentils. Fish and chips were not quite as... More

Chef even came out & chatted about the chicken sauce & made a special pot of it for me :-). Young waiters very nice manner-helpful, polite & professional. Dog friendly too. Lovely pub-would return & recommend-one... More

Great place to eat with a nice atmosphere. Food is deliciously prepared and the quality is excellent. We found the menu to be good value although probably a little more expensive than other restaurants in the local area but the food is worth the extra. Would thoroughly recommend

amazing food at a reasonable price. Im in love with the merguez sausage off the bar menu. Prices start from around £5 on bar menu up to around £13 (if i remeber rightly). I have eaten off the restaurant menu as well before for a more relaxed restaurant feel. They do allow dogs into the bar side of the pub.... More

I think this should show Hepworth in the listing as I was unsure at first it was the right pub! Visited on Sunday lunchtime, we all had the set menu, where there is an option of a set price for two or three courses. I had the duck salad for starters which was ok, but have to say I struggled...
