Called in yesterday, looking forward to a nice lunch, only to find the pub closed and deserted. It actually looked as though it had been closed for some time.

We visited the Winterbourne Arms on a peaceful Sunday Afternoon for a quick drink. From the outside the pub looked very well kept and welcoming. The interior was very cosy and snug and it had a warm lovely atmosphere. The staff were very kind, helpful and polite and greeted us with positive spirit! The drinks came soon after and we... More

My family, my husband and I had all travelled long distances from various places outside this area, to meet up at The Winterbourne Arms for an early Mother's Day lunch yesterday. We'd been told that a large group was due in for lunch, half an hour after our booking so, it would be a good idea if we could arrive... More

Could not wait to try out the fare from a new Italian chef and was not disappointed. I opted for monkfish in a Mediterranean sauce and it was absolutely delicious. My partner opted for some traditional pub fodder in the form sausage and colcannon which he enjoyed immensely. The pub was cosy with a fire lit and Landlady Jan made... More

Tired of motorway services we googled 'pubs off the M4'. It was such a joy. Lovely English pub with an Italian twist thanks to the hosts. So welcoming and friendly where everything is home made. Highly recommended and will use on our journey across the country more often. Can't say enough about it, thank you!

I especially picked the Winterbourne Arms for a birthday lunch as my husband and I have enjoyed some lovely meals there over the years. I telephoned in advance and spoke to the friendly land lady to see what vegetarian dishes would be provided as Sunday menus are often very restrictive. She offered a lot of reassurance I would be fully... More

Wonderful old country inn with excellent food & many thanks for letting us use the bakery for our meeting recently which worked very well as close to M4, large car park and easy to find. Hope to be back if I can persuade the other members! Barbara

Not knowing the area we decided to look on here for some good recommendations, and The Winterbourne arms came with some good signs. However, despite being a Saturday evening the pub was relatively quiet, and after a while we could see why. The hosts were lovely and attentive, but didn't quite hit the mark across the board. - Menu online... More
