The staff and owner couldn't do more for us. We booked the garden room for a meeting and were allowed to stay until after he locked up for lunch. Meals were all really good, fresh home cooked and enjoyed by our party of 6. The owner was especially aware of gluten free abilities of the kitchen and ensured my questions... More

We were staying nearby for a few days and looking for decent vegetarian pub options. On paper the Lysley Arms seemed to have a decent veg offering. Friendly staff as we walked in, and friendly local punters as well. We were disappointed when one of the most interesting dishes was "sold out". The veg lasagne was ok, the mushroom dish... More

Fourteen of us met up for a pre Christmas meal together. What a great evening! Good choice on the seasonal menu, friendly staff and enjoyable meals, enabling us to chat and laugh throughout our evening out. I enjoyed duck and my husband the sea bass and we would recommend either of these dishes. The desserts were good too.
