Carpenters Arms

Having recently undergone a big makeover, the Carpenters Arms is ready to welcome guests with warm hospitality and excellent home-cooked food. Bright, clean and cosy, the pub is very popular so booking ahead is advised.

Not as good as we had hoped.

The log burner was very smoky so windows had to be opened and the pub quickly got cold. The chef ran out of peas for our fish and chips, and although the steak pie was good, the veg consisted of sliced courgettes which were tasteless. Just a bit disappointing, considering we had booked a week before.

We were lucky enough to stay at The Old Post Office just around the corner from The Carpenter's Arms and we used it several times. Lovely welcoming atmosphere and the 'pub grub' menu was well cooked and presented. Would happily go back.

Pretty and traditional 18th Century pub in an unspoilt little village. Popular with locals and visitors alike, good wholesome menu and friendly and attentive staff - plus a lovely log fire!
