We arrived early in this lovely village pub and were greeted with a warm and friendly welcome , we were asked were would we like to sit , we opted for the table by the raised fish pond outside . We ordered the Natcho’s for starters to share , wow what a large portion, perfectly prepared , followed by Hunters chicken , again perfectly presented piping hot , my wife had the roast beef dinner , perfection , both meals were fat and gristle free I might add , I also ordered some blue cheese sauce , this was the BEST I’d ever tasted , I found out that all their sauces , gravy ect are prepared from scratch, it was beautiful, we weren’t rushed and the every one working there seemed happy to be there . Haven’t got a bad thing to say about the time we spent there , it is very clean and well run . Well done guys and girls and Thankyou for a pleasurable meal :-)

We had a meal here on Saturday (our second visit) and it was just as great as the first visit. The food was absolutely gorgeous and the wait was not long at all. I had the rump steak, and my fiancé had the gammon, both were cooked beautifully! The staff are lovely and polite! Overall everything was brilliant! The prices are a little more expensive than other places I’ve eaten however so so worth it! More than happy to pay a little extra for great food!

Outstanding Sunday lunch- Great quality, nicely presented and incredibly tasty. And the desserts were divine. A couple of points taken off as room was a bit chilly and a couple of mistakes with the order (but which were very quickly rectified by the lovely staff)

We had never been to the area before, I am so glad that the Butchers Arms lived up to our expectations and helped make our short break in the area fantastic. The log burner was very welcoming on such a cool day. The pub and carpark was extremely tidy, clean giving a great first impression. The food was excellent, our group had nothing but praise for their meals. Well done Butchers Arms, we'll definitely be back.
