We had a lovely meal here, the menu is changed frequently and there is always a good choice. The service is faultless and the food is prepared and presented above what you'd expect.

Had a lovely meal here after driving all the way to Heydon to find the cafe was closed! However the pub was a great compensation!

The Earle Arms is the focal point of this wonderfully unspoilt village. Like the village, the pub has changed little, thankfully unmodernised. It's a good choice for Sunday lunch, but that said, our experience was someone diluted by the long wait - shared by other diners - and the uncomfortably crowded feel in the main dining room and the bar...

Sorry about the wait, we were aware of this. The problem was that not only were we fully booked but some tables decided to turn up late which put us behind. More

Very quirky pub., not huge range of food, but worth a visit. Tiny bar, with one lady seemingly running it and waitressing.

We had heard about this place so tried it for lunch. It was very quiet but we were welcomed and given a table in the bar next to a roaring fire. Fine selection of food at reasonable prices. I had venison sausages and mash which were excellent.

If I could pick this pub up and move it to my village I would!! If you want a modern clean cut setting probably not for you but if you want a proper English country pub then visit. Small and cosy with a wood burning stove in the bar. Allows dogs in the bar but not restaurant which is ideal... More

I visited the Earle Arms today with a large group of family members. We all had different meals and they were all very good. The prices were modest. The lady serving us was very kind and did not mention the fact that they closed at three when she served us coffee at three twenty. The building and the village are... More

* of us visited for lunch on the hottest day of the year. We sat outside and had drinks, it was a lovely peaceful spot in a pretty village. Our orders were taken and the choice was so good it was difficult to make a decision. Our starters came very quickly but the main courses a little longer. However the... More
