“Steaks the size of your plate!”
Reviewed 19 June 2014

We were staying in Westow and were told the Blacksmiths Arms was a must to visit. On our first day we had a very nice sandwich lunch in their tiny beer garden as we were accompanied by our dog. Sadly dogs are not allowed inside. We decided to book a table for dinner later on in the week. Booking is advisable as it seems a very busy place. We were looked after as soon as we arrived, drinks were ordered and served and then we were shown to a very nice table. Our meal was excellent. We chose some things from the main menu and some things from the specials board. Everything was good and washed down by a bottle of wine. Unfortunately, our appetites were deadened by the amount of good food that we have eaten whilst in Yorkshire! I finished off my meal with a glass of Milk Vodka and my partner had a Cognac. Wonderful! We did ask if they stocked Dry White Port as we rather enjoy a glass. They didn't but did ask for details with a view to stocking some. We had a really good evening at the Blacksmiths Arms and would like to thank everyone there, especially the young ladies who served us with a smile and friendly chatter.
