What People are Saying
“The Friendliest of Staff”
“A quaint little pub, with the friendliest of staff, and fantastic landlords. We had a Sunday roast today, and I can honestly say it was one of the best dinners I have had in years. The food was piping hot, even as we were finishing our meals. Would highly recommend a visit.“
“Just had Sunday lunch takeaway from the village pub ‘The Royal Arms’. Absolutely beautiful! Don’t be fooled by the ‘take-away’ term; this is proper food, cooked in a proper kitchen. I’m now proper full!”
“We visited here with our family for a meal after a day out. The food was delicious and portions are generous. Everyone loved it! Really nice pub with great atmosphere. The owners are very friendly and service was fantastic!“
“We had a lovely warm welcome after a longish walk in scorching heat. Great cider and beer were complemented by the ever so helpful and lovely hosts who rescued the exhausted dogs after 4 mile hike back up the hill. A proper diamond of a pub.“
