On a beautiful sunny afternoon, we relaxed in the small area in front of The Blacksmith's Arms and enjoyed afternoon tea (for some) and some ales. When you visit, make time to visit the adjacent church - especially the Anglo-Saxon Crypt.

Hi, we have a full lunch menu including roasts, we serve from 12-4.45pm, to be sure of a table inside between 12 and 2 it would probably better to book even if there is only 2 of you, after then you should be ok.
