“A Good Country Pub”
Reviewed December 19, 2013

We visited theBroughton Arms for the first time last week and were very impressed. It was very busy with a large party having a Xmas meal but this did not affect us. The orders were taken very quickly and there was very little waiting tiome for the meals to arrive. When they did they were of excellent quality. We will certainly go back again. The only down side was that we thought that the deserts were on the expensive side although they were also very good.

“Very enjoyable dinner”
Reviewed November 28, 2013

There has been some pressure on country pubs, so it is good to visit one that is very obviously busy, even on a Thursday evening.
The food was excactly as expected - very good pub grub. Worthy of mention were the king prawns in a proper tempura batter, making an excellent starter. For dinner our table went for duck, steak (fillet or sirloin) and a rich and delicious steak and kidney pie. The whole experience was warm and satisfying.
This place does not try to be something it isn't. The bar offers the normal range of drinks, the food portions are generous, the vegetables are fresh and seasonal and the service is straightforward and friendly. A thoroughly enjoyable time was had by all.

“Friday Midday meal”
Reviewed November 23, 2013 via mobile

Excellent service. Meal was hot and tasty. The vegetables fresh and beautifully cooked. Price also very reasonable. I haven't been for a long time but it will not be as long before I go again! Well worth a visit if in the area.

“Family get-together”
Reviewed November 19, 2013

Traditional English food, full of flavour and well presented. Good choice of potatoes. Dishes on the menu to suit the eight people in our party. Food and wine very reasonably priced. Good service. The whole family enjoyed the experience and would definitely go again.
