A quaint country pub. Lots of antiques to look at, and buy if you wanted. Ideal venue for a meal with friends. Food delicious. Large portions. Would definitely return.

This is the third time we have been back to the Blacksmiths Arms with good friends. The landlord is very friendly and attends to the cooking. The food is truly great and the portions will defeat you I can almost guarantee it. The steak and Stilton pie is to die for. The character of the pub is wonderful with marvellous... More

This is a very charming place. The fire is usually roaring, it is cosy and full of interesting antiques for sale. There is always a warm welcome and it has a lovely restaurant too.

Last night we had a lovely meal in the company of the patrons Maureen and Colin (chef). It was an unusually quiet night at the restaurant on Thursday but still lots of atmosphere with oil lamps and candles throughout the pub and restaurant. We have eaten our way through the fabulous menus prepared by Colin over the years and the... More

Hidden in the heart of the beautiful Kent countryside, this quaint little pub restaurant is well worth a visit. The staff are friendly and the pub has a relaxed warm feel to it. Good wine and even better food, be sure to try the fish specials and leave lots of room for dessert - will definitely visit again

I was recommended this pub and unfortunately it's taken us a while to visit it. However now that we have I would vertically recomend a visit if your in the area, though it may take some finding. Tucked away in the Kent! North Downs countryside, this little pub is a gem, though may not be to everyone's tastes as its... More

Whenever we have tried to get in here it has been shut - the opening hours certainly don't match those on the website: but then the website hasn't been updated since 1956. When we did manage to get in, we found it to be a quirky, strange pub - it was almost like sitting in someone's house....don't get me wrong,... More
