Somehow the food was disappointing. A roast dinner but I feel that too many people eating and the quality suffered

Very disappointing. Went on somebodies recommendation. If your idea of a good lunch is you can't see the plate - go there. Otherwise, do not bother.

I reviewed the Butchers Arms a while ago but having seen a couple of not so good reviews, I thought I'd see if it has changed. First thing to say is that it is a village pub - not a gastro pub more restaurant than...More

The food at The Butchers is actually quite decent pub food but sadly this is a sad example of a poorly managed village pub - dead hanging baskets, out of date signage, rotten benches, neglected garden, 80's furniture in the lounge, the unsightly smoking shelter...More

We decided to go for a nice Sunday walk around Greens Norton. After a good 5 miles we had built up a good appetite and luckily we stumbled upon the Butchers Arms. It's a traditional old pub with no slot machines or Juke Boxes. What...More
