My wife took friend's to the Palmer Arms for lunch. The meal was delightful especially the sweets. The staff were so friendly. There was one disappointment though! We sat to the rear of the pub and it was rather chilly. I should have told the staff but as they were so helpful, I didn't wish to upset them.

There is plenty of car parking around the side of this Pub which is traditional both inside and out in looks. Upon entering we were greeted by friendly staff at the bar which is quite small but not a problem, service was pleasant and prompt. We pre booked a table for the evening for a friends birthday for 6 of... More

We visited today, as two couples with two young babies in highchairs. The food and atmosphere was good. Clear plates all round. Portion sizes and flavour of the food was great also. Service was also good with staff friendly and attentive. Would definitely recommend and would visit again.

Went in for lunch. All the tables were booked so we were offered a table in the bar area. Service was friendly and prompt. We only had sandwiches with hot filling from the lunch menu with chunky chips but the food was lovely and good value for money. Will definitely be returning.

I took my parents for lunch at The Palmer Arms today having already warned them that the service wasn't great but my previous (one time) experience of the food had been good. The table was booked for 12:30 but no food arrived until 1:35. 3 of us ordered macaroni cheese which was tasteless and the sauce so runny you neede... More

I'm so sorry that on this occasion the level of service was so poor. Unfortunately we had 1 of our front of house staff & 1 of our chef's off sick that day, which affected our normal levels of service and for that I can only apologise. I had hoped that by refunding your bill in full at the time... More

Went along for a meal on 28th December with friends. I pre booked thankfully. Upon arrival the pub was very busy. We ordered various different dishes, including children's menus. The food was outstanding. The staff very friendly and professional. I would highly recommend.

Every year my mate & I find a pub within our area & have our Christmas meal. This year we decided to come to the Palmers Arms as we really liked their Christmas menu. The atmosphere in the pub was just right & the hospitality from the waiting staff was good. Our food choices were excellent & our only criticism... More

Went for a family walk away from London. Meet the landlord (Chris) in the car park he sorted out our walk and our Sunday lunch. Fantastic food and great service. To be honest I would actually rate it 6 out of 5. Top food for kids and adults.bTop Man, top pub😋

Have been a regular visitor over the past 40 years and in the past was good. On this occasion it did not quite live up to its expectation. A Saturday night and not over busy, one of starters did not arrive and when it did, not quite what was ordered. One beer which was ordered was not available, but rather... More
