Been to this pub three years running now and haven't been disappointed - the menu is perfect for a village pub wouldn't expect anything else. Ate there three times on the trot this year and we weren't disappointed - just incredibly full!! Wine wasn't overpriced as some places. Bar staff very friendly and welcoming. Would certainly recommend it Not sure what concertjon meant in April - stay how you are Carpenter's Arms.

Many village pubs have saved their futures by beefing up their food service. Sadly the carpenter's arm has yet to catch up and despite two visits recently, i'd be reluctant to recommend this pub as an eatery unless you are happy with 'tourist' food. Prices are reasonable, red wines not bad, but about the best thing about the place are the two real fires. Maybe April is not their best time but as the only pub in the village they need to up their game.

Good menu with choice for kids too. Egg & chips to salmon fishcakes with sweet chilli dip. Something for everyone. Friendly, warm no frills experience but no worse for that, quite a relief from Chintz and Chain owned eateries. Oh and I nearly forgot, jolly good beer.

Cosy friendly village pub with better than average food. There was a mix of locals and tourists and a lovely wood burning stove. The beer was well kept and the doombar very worth a try
