We ate here last Saturday as a family of 8 and had an enjoyable meal. Our order was taken fairly quickly, but immediately after ordering one of our party wished to change their order, but the landlady told us it was too late to change it! However,that aside, the food arrived fairly quickly and was all very good. Food is... More

Very offhand attitude when we arrived despite having booked the day before. Eventually waved to our table and waited some time for menus. Waitresses doing their best so reasonable service once we ordered. Food tasty and fairly good value for money. However, completely put off by the attitude of the publican which was a pity.

I have been diagnosed with a gluten and dairy intolerence but I am also French therefore food is very important to me. Since, I am terrified of eating out, have been sick countless times after trusting people who gave me an allergy menu but were not bothered at all by the consequences. The Begelly Arms staff treated me with respect,... More

We had booked a table for 10 in advance for a Sunday Lunch. On arrival we were all asked to stand at the bar whilst our table was put ready? All drinks whether they be cokes or beers tasted like dish water - glasses could not have been rinsed properly! We were then kept waiting whilst staff took phone calls... More

Hi thanks for taking the time to review Firstly I am not sure which party you were with but on checking our diary there was only one and that was 2nd April for 12:30.

Had a lovely sunday roast, have not been to Begelly since it has changed ownership. We thoroughly enjoyed the meal, with three meats to choose from and dishes with four vegetables on the table. The meal did not disappoint, plates were hot which my mum loves to hear, we even managed to have a dessert, they also were good portions... More

We went as a very large family so had to be split over two tables. Not ideal but we were next to each other. Food came very quick and was very nice and tasty, but my only complaint was the portion size. One of the meals came only with approx 8 chips! Other than that, lovely place to eat.
