My wife and I met 2 other couples for a meal and some drinks tonight. This was our second visit to the pub and once again they did not disappoint. On our first visit the owner took the time to come over and introduce himself and have a chat. We really appreciated that. When you drive up to the Brocket Arms you see a beautiful period pub in a gorgeous, rural village. We went in and immediately were greeted with a friendly smile. We were there for wine and a meal but were also given a taste of the guest ale which was exceptional. I had the fish and chips which was excellent. It had a great batter and was obviously fresh and the homemade chips were just right. The service was very good as well. We were looked after at the right level, taken care of but not intruded on. Our plates had nothing left on them when we were done!! I had an apple crumble for dessert which was homemade and very tasty. The wine was spot on as well. Very nice. I have to say, the roaring fires (one open and one woodburner) along with the beams really gives this place an atmosphere. The pub is clean, well taken care of and friendly. For me it's exactly what a pub should be. Well done to all the staff there and thanks for a great night out.
