“excellent food”
Reviewed January 6, 2014

went for a sandwich to the Blacksmiths Arms at lunchtime. Had a hot beef sandwich, in a baguette, which came with a little pot of gravy and a plateful of salad. We shared a portion of chips. absolutely lovely sandwich, the beef was very tender, and the chips tasted home made. delicious. £3.99 for the sandwich, which we thought was extremely good value for the quality of food.

“Nice pub, warm and friendly and good food.”
Reviewed January 6, 2014

Recently visited the Blacksmiths for an afternoon meal and few drinks with friends, the pub is warm and comfortable which is welcoming. The food is really good (particularly the homemade steak pie) and the portion size more than enough. The range of traditional ales is a bonus but the prices can be quite expensive. Overall a good little pub that you should definitely stop at if out for a walk or just fancy a few.

“Cosy Pub On A Wild Night”
Reviewed January 5, 2014

We visited for our tea on New Years Day. There was a special menu that day which, although offering around eight main courses, may have been more limited than their normal menu. From memory there were several roasts, a fish pie, steak pie and vegetarian lasagne among the options.
The roast beef & Yorkshire and the steak & ale pie were very nice and accompanied by plenty of perfectly prepared vegetables, potatoes and chips.
The two deserts we selected from the extensive menu were a little disappointing. My jam roly poly wasn't particularly substantial and had little jam to plenty of roly poly. The apple in the apple pie was crunchy which isn't as well baked as I like. Nor was it very sweet.
The food was averagely priced for this neck of the woods and overall I felt offered fair value for money.
During our visit the pub was busy with, what appeared to be, happy diners.

“Good homecooked food”
Reviewed January 4, 2014

Never disappointed, whenever I try somewhere different my first comment is that you can't beat the Blacksmiths! Food is wonderfully cooked and presented, choice of mash, new and chipped potatoes, salad, peas or veg. Cosy pub, good atmosphere, fab location and stunning views.

“Wonderful New Years Day meal”
Reviewed January 1, 2014

Took husband & 3 fussy kids for New Year lunch & it was fantastic. Lovely food, pleasant staff, quick service (which would've been quicker if I'd realised sooner that you order food at the bar!).
All in all a really pleasant experience. Thoroughly recommend it. Will definitely be going again.
