We visited with friends for Sunday lunch and had fortunately booked a table, otherwise think it could have been difficult to get a table at 1pm when we dined. We sat at a table in the main bar area which has a really nice atmosphere, but there is a separate large dining room if you prefer. We all ordered the...

8 of us went to celebrate a 50th birthday. We turned up @ 1930 but didn't have our orders taken until 2000hrs. We only had a main course each & it took an hour to come. One person had ordered a burger but returned it because it was burnt,they didn't have any more so she had to order something else!...

Have eaten here several times including Christmas Day and the food never disappoints. The rustic pub is decorated well. They have an obsession with clocks and always have interesting ones displayed. Staff are friendly, polite and welcoming. The food is always fantastic. The desserts are incredible and all very reasonably priced. Highly recommend a visit if you haven't been there...

I booked a table for Sunday lunch for 4 people which was confirmed by telephone. I then called in the week to add on another person which again was confirmed as fine and okay. On the Sunday morning another person decided they wanted to come at the last minute so I called to see if off the off chance they...

First visit to the Bolingbrook arms but not the last. Thoroughly enjoyed the food. It was busy and the service could have been a little less disorganised but the food that was served to us quashed our initial dissatisfaction at our booking not recorded or written down in their book and so nearly didn't get to eat! Portion size is...

We have been to the Bolingbroke Arms on many occasions both casual and special. You are always guaranteed superb food with a good friendly service. Personal favorites of ours is the Fillet Steak and on Sundays the Lamb. There is always such a lovely warm and cosy atmosphere. Would highly recommend.

I booked and pre-ordered the food from the menu and did have an exception where 1 person chose off the normal menu which was great as they allowed which was great. However when we arrived at 12 the main entrance was closed, we then go in ordered drinks at the bar and then was showed the table. All decorated however...

The room was clean comfortable and had a good supply of toiletries(no tiny hard to read bottles).The bed was a good size. The breakfast was cooked to order and when I asked what was available the reply was anything you like.

Absolutely delicious Sunday lunch. Plenty to go round and beautifully cooked. I would award full marks if the service was a little less disorganised and the ladies toilet facilities were not so shabby.

we regularly go to the Bolingbroke Arms for either lunch or dinner, as a couple, small (adult) family group, or occasionally mob-handed as a group of more than 10 people, and we enjoy it every time. From the warm welcome, to the attentive service, to the excellent food from a comprehensive menu and good specials board... this place succeeds every...
