My wife & I were staying in the CL site up the road, and visited this village pub for drinks one night and food another night.
The proprietors were very friendly and we chatted to them a fair amount. Their dog was gorgeous and very friendly, although he does sometimes bark a welcome when people enter the pub; didn't bother us at all but some folks may be cautious (the owners are actively training him not to bark).
A lovely log fire was warming the pub on the cold January evenings we visited, and due to the excessive rainfall the road was flooding (as had the cellar earlier in the month apparently).
The pub was very quiet - I suspect the poor weather was keeping many away.
The food we ate on our second visit was truly superb! My wife enjoyed a lovely steak, and I had a rolled Asian spiced pork which was fantastic. The attention to detail and mix of flavours was sublime.
If we return to the campsite up the way we will definitely re-visit the Peterborough Arms for food. I just hope the locals & passers by give this place a chance and stop in for a visit.
