Don't be put off by the rather tired appearance. The beer is great and the food likewise. Their double lunch offer (2 for £12.75) is superb value, and the ham eggs chips and peas are delicious.

I have eaten here a few times for lunch and also for dinner. The food is always lovely and the staff are very attentive making sure we had drinks and asking how our meal and if we were all happy. Worth a visit

A group of ten of us went to the Carpenters Arms for our annual christmas get together. I must admit that I went with some reservations. The Pub is certainly not the Ritz and does not claim to be. I was however pleasently surprised. The staff were attentive, the food was good and hot, we had lenty of vegatables and when we wanted our glasses refilled the staff were ready to wait on us. The puddings were also good and we had mince pies and coffee included in the price. We left all of us singing the carpenters praise. Yes a good night was had by all.

Good food, well presented .Friendly staff. The day I last went there was a male chef who seems more on the ball than the female chef who seems less organised.
