Lovely afternoon in the sunshine raising money for charity. The atmosphere was great, providing entertainment for the children with a bouncy castle and face painting and live music for the grown ups. The staff were very welcoming and the service and food very good.

5 star! Just back from the Deramore Arms. Husband had liver and onions - can be a little dodgy. Not so! He found it so tasty- only complaint he should have asked for a spoon to scoop up the gravy!. Good unusual veggie choice for me, served quickly and pleasantly. Excellent value Thank you.

My wife and I visited The Deramore Arms last Wednesday and being completely honest I was slightly cautious due to some of the recent Trip Advisor reviews. However, we were both extremely surprised! The waitress and barmaid were very talkative and welcoming, and our table was set immediately. I ordered the Deramore Burger and my wife ordered Rump Steak and... More

Me and my partner visited the Deramore the second week it had reopened last month as we live local and was sad when it closed in August. Our first visit wasn't that great we had to wait a long time for our meals and as we had arranged other plans we had to ask for a refund which was really... More

I visited the deramore arms today with my wife and days and it's was the most pleasurable experience I've had in a pub for a long time. My daughter is a fussy eater and the chef catered to her needs without any questions asked the barmaid was very happy chatting to me and my daughter whilst serving to keep her... More

I visited this pub on a Tuesday lunchtime with 21 colleagues. We had booked ahead and provided our menu choices, choosing a mixture of the £8.95 2 course lunch options and individual items from the main menu. After each getting a drink from the bar, we sat in our reserved area, after one of the barmaids added an extra table... More

Used to go for lunch here regularly and thought we should try it after the change of management, but I doubt we'll be going back. Food choice is limited and unimaginative, with virtually no vegetarian options. The service was awful. We were a group of seven and ordered just mains and our food eventually arrived 1 hour 20 minutes after... More

Recently visited The Deramore Arms for Mother's Day with my children where free glass of champagne was given to all mother's which I thought was a great touch. The customer service was very good and the staff very friendly. I enjoyed the food and the atmosphere was very homely and welcoming. I overheard that the pub was under new management... More

This review gets 2 stars rather than 1 because the staff were ok. We were initially the only diners at lunchtime (though others did come later) but we still had to wait a long time for the food and then they got the order wrong. The potato and leek soup was almost inedible (but given the solid potato pieces in... More
