“Local produce cooked to its best”
Reviewed February 24, 2014

After a mix up on the meal opening times and then told the credit card machine was not working (not their fault), we thought we would try elsewhere. The staff were so helpful in turning the situation round. So glad we stayed,food was outstanding in taste,quality and value. Only managed 1 dessert,and again that was delicious. Staff and owner so helpful and attentive. Definitely on my list to visit again. Thank you for an excellent Sunday lunch.

“Weekend Break”
Reviewed February 23, 2014

This is a wonderful little gem tucked away in the village of Flaxton. We travelled up with friends and stayed on a bed and breakfast basis for the weekend. Our rooms were delightful, very spacious bright and clean. Claire and her staff were very helpful, friendly, polite and accommodating - and so were the local patrons. We booked our table for dinner on the evening of our arrival and were so impressed with the quantity and quality of the food, we booked for the following evening too! It does get busy in the evening, so we would recommend booking in advance to avoid disappointment! Cannot recommend highly enough - we will certainly be making return visits!

“Disappointing”
Reviewed February 21, 2014 via mobile

Had just driven 3 and a half hours, the day after our wedding. Wanted to relax with a drink and possibly food. The Arms was recommended. Walked in to no seating, as tables were reserved for eating guests in the bar area. Regulars were taking up the bar seating. We got our drinks and asked the bar staff, if we could sit at a reserved table, to drink. Yes we could, until the people arrived. We felt as if we had to rush to drink, as we had nowhere to relax. Then, the restaurant waitress came over, to say that we would have to move when the restaurant booked people arrived. This made us feel even more unwelcome. Then, when the reserved guests arrived, we were informed that there was a bar seating area tucked around the corner. Why did no one tell us about this at the beginning? Thoroughly unrelaxing experience, sorry to say.
