Came for lunch a few weeks ago. Food was so fast and tasted great. I had the liver and bacon. Amazing value for money - £15 for 2 courses and a drink! Really friendly service - especially from the manager! Will be back!

Seven ladies away for weekend. The Bakers Arms was recommended to us for Sunday lunch. It wasn't cheap for a pub roast - £17 for one meat or £18.5 for 3 meats, but WOW! what a lot of food, and all excellent! 10 different vegetables, all very nicely cooked. They are going for some sort of Sunday dinner award, and... More

Four adults and three children (10mth 4 yrs and 8 yrs) arrived a bit muddy and scruffy after a long country walk. Staff brilliant, friendly and helpful. Food excellent. No children's menu but able to split an adult meal over two plates, or get a starter sized portion. Prices not at cheap end, but fair value. Recommended.
