“Out of this world!”
Reviewed August 12, 2013

I went to the Blacksmiths Arms and had a fillet steak - I was not disappointed! The service was excellent, all staff were friendly and happy to serve. The meal arrived with minimal waiting time despite them being very busy. The steak was huge for a fillet, and I have paid more money for a steak half the size! The meat melted in my mouth and was so soft to cut, cooked to perfection and accompanied by onion rings, mushroom, tomatoes and peppercorn sauce, all made from scratch. I love my steak and don't normally eat much of the extras but they tasted so good I finished it all. I have never had a meal where my mouth was still watering for hours after just thinking about how good it was! I honestly can't understand the negative comments because this experience was wonderful.

“Lunch visit”
Reviewed August 12, 2013

I organised an outing for a group of farmers. Had this venue recommended to me so booked in for lunch. The staff were most helpful and the meal was excellent. The group being all beef farmers chose steak and this was an excellent choice as it was very tasty and got their approval!
Would certainly visit again if in this area.
