One of my family and extended family's favourite restaurants in the area. Outstanding steaks, which can be individually weighed and priced (A 20oz Rump), always cooked to order and a treat every time. The burgers are wonderful too, as are the ribs (be very hungry) and as a starter, the platters or salt and pepper squid are my firm favourites.... More

Please ignore the negative reviews. This is a superb place to eat and stay. I had a last minute business trip and booked the Percy Arms through roomex at a great price. Fantastic food, rooms and the best breakfast I've had at a b&b in a very long time. Highly recommended!!!!

Superb carvedy lunch. Turned up without a booking and they squeezed us in. Vegetables were great as well as the gravy which is rarely the case. The meat was superbly cooked and the general gastro-pub ambience was perfect

This is a favourite for my husband and I. We love the curry night on a Thursday £10 for curry and a drink. They also do steak night on a Tuesday and 2 4 1 burgers on a Monday. The Sunday roast is an experience. While it's a South African meat restaurant they also do a lot of fish. Great... More

I've been here with my colleagues for our Christmas lunch. The food was awesome, the staff is very friendly and always looking at all tables. As a starter I had salted squid which was very tasty and as main I had grilled sea bream which was fantastic. Definitely going back and definitely recommended.

Went visited on Sunday 18th December with my daughter and husband. Car Park was a good indication of how busy and popular this place is. When we got inside it was heaving but a great atmosphere. Within two minutes we were shown to our table presented with the menus and offered drinks. i have been to many quiet restaurants who... More

I went with some work colleagues to the Percy Arms for our christmas lunch. We had had our Christmas lunch there two years earlier, and thought it so good that we would go back there again, and wern't disappointed. We had a mixture of food, but everyone thought the food was very good. I had the steak which was excellent.... More
