“thank goodness new owner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 January 2014

Used to go every couple of weeks, initially when Chris took over in about 2009, food was always excellent, but progressively he lost focus, started jacking up the prices, service went off, food quality definitely fell. Attitude was take it or leave it, which was very sad as we really liked going
to this nice pub, good luck to the new owners, now new year is out of the way we will come and try your food and service which sounds very good. Can only finish this review by hopeful visit to come, tripadvisor should alter reporting to take this into account, also should heavily indicate new owners from a date, to give them equal chance to their competition.

“Excellent Food, Excellent Atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 December 2013

We first visited the pub in December 2013 following the re-opening under new management. The atmosphere in the pub is very relaxing and friendly, the staff are extremely attentive and service is brilliant. Above all the food is first class, portions are just right and the quality of the food is well worth the money. We have eaten at the arms a few times now and have been impressed every time. Well worth a visit, and a very well done to the new manager on an excellent pub.
