As someone that goes out for Sunday lunch most weeks, I have quite a bit of experience of local restaurants and what is on offer. I have to say the Downe Arms Sunday carvery is among my top 3. Very pleasant restaurant with friendly and efficient staff. The carvery offers a choice of 3 meats with a plentiful helping. A...

The service was very warm and welcoming. Lovely decor with delicious food. A real bright spot on a dull day. Very reasonable prices too. The bathroom facilities were excellent and although it was raining heavily outside it was so nice inside that you forgot about the weather entirely

Even though they had 2 separate private functions on and we didn't have a reservation, they managed to squeeze us in and made us feel very welcome. The food was delicious and my steak was cooked to perfection. Having great food is one...

We went for a works Christmas meal. On first arrival there was a wedding on the ground floor and our Christmas party was on the first floor. The doubled functions lead to staff shortage with no one welcoming and guiding us to the correct room. When we got to the function room we were crammed in with about 150 people....
