4 of us ate here and were all happy with our meals. Not the greatest but well cooked, plenty of it and enjoyable. 4 meals and 4 sweets for £47 was a real bargain. Straight forward down to earth pub. No pretensions.

We were staying at the Mercure Hotel just down the road from the Carriers Arms & thought we'd 'pop in' for a quick lunch. We were given a very friendly greeting and service; the freshly made sandwiches were excellent & a bonus was a choice of Real Ale! NO it wasn't dingy or dirty it is a 'real pub', very rare to find these days with a lot of places tarting up & becoming trendy soulless, expensive wine bars. We decided to go in the evening for a meal, and while there were invited to join the locals in a pub quiz which was free & great fun. We both had the steak which was cooked exactly as we asked and was one of the best we've had in ages. We were visiting the area to tour the Cotswolds, the next day we'd had a good breakfast at the hotel so after a long day driving around & not stopping for lunch etc., went back to the Carriers, we ordered fish 'n' chips which was freshly cooked & superb, and my husband had a Thai curry, again very good. Oh, and the prices would be very hard to match - to sum up WE WISH WE HAD A LOCAL LIKE THE CARRIERS ARMS!!!!!!

Went here to book a table to eat Sunday night - first impressions dingy and dirty! Thankfully they are closed Sunday nights! Glasses filthy, toilets disgusting! If visiting south marston avoid!!

Had fond memories of this place but when I visited recently and ordered scampi and chips, I was so disappointed. The scampi was overdone and very crunchy to the point of almost ring burnt. The chips were dry and tasteless. The service was efficient and the log fire very welcoming on a cold and wet night.
