“early evening meal”
Reviewed April 24, 2013

come to this pub quite often just for a drink,however decided we would have a pub snack one nday evening,have to say hubbys burger was great value and hot,but i chose the steak sarnie and chips which consisted of 3 tiny pieces of chewy steak in a cold ciabatta bread,with approx 6b CHIPS at 6.00 this was not a good choice,they had also ran out of cream for the apple pie,have to say the little waitress was delightful, polite couldnt apologise enough tho hardly her fault.on the whole a nice pub seving reasonable food just unlucky i think on this ocassion worth a try honestly

“Disappointing”
Reviewed April 14, 2013

I went to the Open Arms on a Saturday lunchtime, the weather surprisingly was reasonable so we sat outside, Having got some drinks , ordered two sandwiches. The pub was not busy, probably no more than 20 people inside and out. The pulled pork sandwich was so badly made that there was loads of pork in one half and practically nothing in the other half. The fish goujon sandwich was supposed to come with tartare dip, there was no dip. As mentioned, it wasnt busy, but there was no one around to ask for the dip. Usually a member of staff will come and ask you if you meals are ok, but no one did. £10 for two sandwiches is not cheap so it was disappointing and I wont be visiting again anytime soon.

My most recent visit to the Open Arms was much better than the last! The food & the atmosphere were much better than the last time I came in.

“Much improved!”
Reviewed February 17, 2013

I have been going to the Open Arms regularly for around 18 months now and I would like to say that this time last year the pub was falling apart! However recently I have noticed its improvement! The food is much nicer and the menu has huge variety. The staff are always polite and welcoming and seem to be enjoying their job. The new managers are obviously working very hard to continue to turn this neighbourhood pub back into a friendly place to go. Well done to the team at The Open Arms :-)
