Simply delightful local pub situated at the heart of this pretty village. Stunning hanging baskets enhance the appearance of this attractive building which lures you in to sample the extensive range of Burton Bridge brewery products, guest ales and continental bottled lagers. Prosecco by small and large bottles available in addition to standard and flavoured wines. Although this establishment does... More

All I can say is that I love this traditional British pub and if you have never tried a pint of 'Stairway to Heaven' then you are definitely missing out!

What great service in this place...we went in here for a drink. Now for a local pub, sometimes you can feel very unwelcome and conscious of the fact that you're an outsider, but the land lady and bar staff were so lovely I could have stayed in there all night. Great prices and great people

Called into the Brickmakers Arms twice now and each time there has been a friendly welcome from the staff and a great choice of beers. Just what you hope to find in a traditional pub. Will certainly call again.

Stopped here near the end of a nice walk in the local countryside. It started to drizzle so gave us a great excuse to nip in for a pint. A lovely friendly pub with fire going in the end room. Nicely decorated and overall cosy atmosphere. I'd recommend you to stop by and give it a go. 😊

We only called in briefly for a drink with friends. However, that was sufficient to find out that the bar staff and the locals were very friendly. The beer was of good quality (hand pump draught) as well. Would certainly recommend a visit.

A proper local run by lovely people who know how to keep beer good and customers happy. Always busy and we love popping in as we pass by.

If you want a good pint (or more), a decent wine, or one of a selection of malt whiskys then pop to the Brickmakers. Think back to the days when a pub was a pub, when the landlord lived or died on his/her reputation for hospitality and quality of beer.
