Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Oh wow. I should have taken a photo but didn’t think to. We have just had the best Sunday lunch at this place. Large portions, wonderfully tasty and very friendly staff. I booked during the week via Facebook and will definitely be returning and recommending...it to anyone who asks. I chose the beef which was particularly tender. My husband is not a roast fan and chose their special- macaroni cheese with chorizo. All 5 of us who are there enjoyed our meal immensely.More

A delightfully friendly welcome from the (relatively) new landlord, very good food with most generous helpings, the 'Bang bang' prawn starter was amazing, wine was delicious. Enjoyed sitting beside the roaring fire. Will certainly be back again soon.More

We arrived at 1.20 (five minutes late) and our food arrived at 2.45!!! We were one of two tables with diners! The waitress seemed brusque and astonished to be asked for anything at all…including ketchup… so we didn’t ask for salt or pepper because she...appeared to be so harassed. The pub was SO cold that we all had to put our jackets on despite a wood burning stove at one end. My feet were like blocks of ice and the loos were freezing too (men and women’s), they both had radiators but these weren’t on. There was no soap in either of the soap dispensers. The food was okayish but certainly not anything we’d return for….. Disappointing after reading some good reviews.More

We originally booked via the website and despite receiving a confirmation, when I rang to ask about dietary restrictions, our booking for 16 hadn’t been received. But we were accommodated along with 5 dogs, and really welcomed after our “Christmas walk” to the Butcher’s Arms....The staff were friendly and attentive, the food delicious and plentiful and Ben cooked a special dish due to food allergies- thank you. We’ll be visiting again and highly recommend it.More

Delicious roast lunch. Generous portions, great flavours and pipping hot food. We were with a large group of friends for a pre Christmas gathering with five dogs, in the private, events room. The staff could not have been more accommodating and even provided water bowls...and treats for the dogs. Great service and good value for money. Would definitely recommend.More

We visited The Butchers Arms for the first time last night to take part in their Quiz Night. The pub was full of locals, and we received a very warm welcome from both the very friendly staff and the fellow quizzers. With three lovely log...fires, it was the perfect place to spend a chilly Winters evening. Although we didn't eat on this occasion, the food looked lovely, and we will definitely return to sample the food. Highly recommended.More
