“Great pub, friendly staff and fantastic food”
Reviewed May 22, 2013 via mobile

What a lovely surprise to find a pub which is pleasant and has a chef able to cook fresh food. We dined with our noisy kids so chose to sit out of the restaurant in the pool area which kept the kids quiet. The food was fantastic and the staff very friendly. We will definitely be back.. Thanks

“Friendly staff, nice atmosphere”
Reviewed April 3, 2013

We were staying in the area recently and had the pleasure of eating at the Butchers Arms. On entering the bar area there was a lovely fire lit in the stove which was welcomed as it was freezing outside. The staff were friendly and very efficient. On the menu were light meals which were a perfect size for us, I ate the smoke haddock and pea risotto which was lovely. Would definately visit again if in the area.

Stayed in this area for several days and ate here on all 3 occasions we ate out. The variety and quality of the food was superb and the service was second to none

“Good food and good atmosphere”
Reviewed December 25, 2012

This a is community pub with real history, staff are very friendly and helpful, there is a good range of beer available plus a wide selection of food at reasonable prices.

Opening hours are a little limited - so it's best to check before visiting,

The bar area is dog friendly!
