Very impressed with the food at Blacksmiths Arms. I am vegan, and I emailed in advance to see if they could accommodate me. They pulled together a delicious three course menu. My partner also enjoyed his food off the main menu!

Staff very friendly. Food good, but city prices in a country pub. Drinks overpriced, especially when charged for a couple of drinks that were returned because they tasted off. Will think very hard before going back.

Had a nice lunch here today. Only advice I would offer is that although kids are welcome, there is no kids menu. All mains are offered as kids meals but the menu itself is very much tailored to adults. Food was very nice though and...More

Hi sorry I’m not sure. But I’m sure if you gave them a ring they would let you know.
