Had to wait a little while for our meal but then food quality is very very good, well presented and at a great price. A good selection of beers available. Bar staff and the locals were very friendly.

Had lunch here before spending the weekend at the Manor House Hotel. The quality of the food in the Eden Arms is amazing and the value is excellent. The food is homemade ( I would recommend the fish cakes ) and freshly prepared. Service is a little slow but we did not mind as the food was so good and... More

Visited this establishment due to a stay at The Manor House. If I were to review the food it would be 5/5. The food was spot on! Pub grub- I had steak and my husband had the parmo. Compliments to the chef! What was very bizarre was that it is very much a pub for the locals. When seated at... More

We visit here quite often. Always find the staff and regulars friendly and welcoming and have enjoyed the Friday night live music. Food is delicious and excellent value for money with some good offers being available for early evenings.
