John and Joy are fantastic! Joy is a wonderful cook. We stayed in the self catering 2 bedroom, 2 bath cottage next to the restaurant and it was wonderful! Beautiful surroundings and all the comforts of home. Great food and service at the restaurant!

We made the most of the living space to get ready and pop a few bottles before heading over to the venue. Lovely spacious living areas, fantastic self... More

I've been to the Carpenters Arms many times and have always found the staff very welcoming and the food always top quality. They have a nice selection of traditional pub grub which I believe is all sourced locally and is fresh. Portion sizes are very generous, very good value for money. Fish and chips are a must!!

We visited here today on the basis of previous reviews. We were not disappointed. An excellent pub providing an excellent Sunday lunch of good quality and large portions. The food is apparently locally sourced, and was, as a result, very tasty. We will have no hesitation in calling again when we are next in the area.

I have noticed that my review of this pub has been taken down. I find this very disappointing & exceptionally dishonest. They have since contacted the person who recommended and told them my card was not accepted, this is untrue. I would like an explanation. The food was awful & it makes the whole use of tripadvisor useless.

We chose the Carpenters Arms as a midpoint between Northampton and Carmarthen as a meeting point. In short, we had a great experience with very convivial hosts and excellent food. We would definitely recommend the baked haddock! Can't comment on the beer as we were driving - shame!

Good pub grub in a friendly atmosphere. All home cooking and a special menu on Thursdays for pensioners.
