This pub, which has had a chequred past, is now right on the top of its game. The new owners (Sean and Ness) are really welcoming publicans and have developed a good team of staff around them. Food is excellent, sometimes outstanding, and they always have a wide selection of real ales, all very well kept. My only comment, which could help their profits!! is that they could do with 2/3/4 wines of a higher calibre on their list (especially the reds). I would be quite happy to pay up to £25 for a better wine than they do now. Not that I mind a top price of £17.00 odd, but that wine is no better than mediocre.

The Blackwood Arms is a lovely country pub that you are unlikely to stumble across unless you're lost. It's not a big place and it's popular and that's because the food is excellent, the beer well kept, and the wine list reasonably priced. The staff are very friendly. To be sure to secure a table you'll need to book.

If it's raining, because of it's size, it's not an ideal venue if you have small children.There is a garden out the back and open area in front of the pub so it's fine if the weather is good.

There is now wifi and that's why it's not got 5 stars.

Would like to take this opportunity to thank Sean and his team for such an amazing time on Sunday. My husband and I decided to host a family party before relocating to the US and Sean could not have been more accommodating helpful and welcoming. I never write reviews....but have had so many compliments from all our 70 guests that I just had to credit all the staff at the Blackwood Arms. Sean organised the most amazing food offering of Roast Beef, salads, potatoes sea food and so much more, nothing was ever too much trouble for him or his staff and everyone was so well looked after. The pub is in such a beautiful setting and inside is cosy and informal..perfect place to hold a gathering or just pop in for a pint and a bite to eat ....which we fully intend to do whenever we return to the UK. Thanks again for making our day so perfect!

We went up to the pub for food again the other night and yet again the food was great , we had camember to share which is the best of these we have ever had anywhere.

Mains where a burger and a haddock and chips.

Food was great as usual , the log fire was going which is a lovely touch.

Service is good and polite but just remeber your in a small family pub. We have never had reason to complain and go about once a month.

There is a lovely garden in the summer and they do let dogs in.

Parking is availible opposite , one small thing if your not sure where it is use a satnav as it is touched away in the Beeches , but it is worth the drive or walk.

Visited last Sunday for lunch and had a most enjoyable meal. The roasts were excellent, the staff very friendly and helpful and blankets were provided for our dog to make him comfortable. The vegetable were fresh and cooked properly, the meat portions were generous with a choice of two sizes available with even the smaller portion sufficient for most adults.I also liked the vegetables being served in a separate dish to allow people to help themselves to exactly what they wanted. It was becoming busy towards the end of lunchtime so I would recommend that you book for early on as otherwise you may well wait a while for your food but it is worth waiting for.
