Good local estate pub, good selection of ciders, including a very strong Old Rosie a pint of carling is only £3.10 food is above average for a pub, atmosphere is friendly and welcoming of families and young children. They have themed nights and quiz's a decent centre for the community...but with beer so that's a bonus..

Have been here a few times now. A good place to meet for lunch. You will always find something on the menu. I do think the white wines are not great. You can sit all day and have a good catch up with friends. It is nice sitting by the fires. Also there are different areas to sit. So families... More

Live locally but do not usually eat here. Nice atmosphere, even a fire. Food came promptly and was attractive, tasty and hot. Well done.

This was the third time we were at Blunsdon Arms, first time for dinner and the other two for lunch. The Bank Holiday Monday lunch was really good/excellent. All four of us had different dishes and they were all nicely prepared and presented. The quality and the taste were excellent and so were the quantity. The bar I particularly like... More

Following the post-Xmas and post-NY blow-out, this was one of the few places to have more than a few customers. I expect it always has and this shouldn't be a surprise given its extensive menu and very reasonable prices and offers too ! Nothing is too much trouble and the staff do work hard though keep it a friendly &... More

Stopped off at this pub/restaurant on Christmas Day. We had been told by the owners they were doing 2 bookings, one at 2 pm the other at 4 pm, which we decided to take. We arrived early, had a drink at the bar. As we were early we made no fuss that we had to wait whilst they laid a... More

We go there once or twice a year for a drink. The decor has been redone and is very nice. Food looks good but we have never tried it. There are a gew fire places which is perfect location to cosy up in the winter
