Been visiting the Blacksmiths regularly for some time now. Food is as good as ever and the service is exceptional. Always made to feel welcome and at ease. Cannot recommend the Blacksmiths enough.

Thank you so much for a wonderful time yesterday. Everyone could not stop talking about the whole experience from the beautiful surroundings to the excellent food and the outstanding level of customer service. We were there for a Diamond Wedding Anniversary and the age range was 87 years to 15 months. Everyone's needs were catered for and nothing was too much trouble. We will definitely be back again.

Had a wonderful evening at the Blacksmiths’s Arms celebrating my 50th Birthday in the private dining area with my family, it was perfect, food, service and atmosphere. The table was laid up beautifully with fresh blue hyacinths presented in small glass vases which smelt amazing too. Thanks for a truly memorable evening.

Very attentive service and lovely atmosphere as always at the Blacksmiths. The lamb dish was enjoyable- lamb loin cooked to perfection, although the accompanying couscous was a little bland, and the sweetbreads rather small and, if being picky, not as crispy, as advertised. My husband's burger was nice, but the cheese was forgotten and the chips were a lacklustre. The creme brulee was absolutely delicious though, which definitely made up for the slightly mixed mains.

After being seated we waited 30 minutes after our booking time before someone took our food order. We also had to visit the bar for drinks, whereas i expected table service. The majority of our table had beef which was fatty and off putting so unfortunately not everyone enjoyed their meal. I had the pork which was delicious. I do love thd Blacksmiths but think I prefer to visit on a day other than Sunday when choice is limited to one menu.

We thoroughly enjoyed our evening. Service was very polite but we make did have to remind them that we'd like more water (having asked for it already). No big deal but worth mentioning. Quite a small wine list but actually that's OK as one which is too big can make it difficult to decide. Very interesting choices of food and when our daughters wanted to share a starter it was beautifully presented on 2 plates. Well done, we will be back

We eat regularly at The Blacksmiths when we are visiting family close by. We have always been made to feel welcome, the food and service has always been excellent and we have no hesitation in recommending this restaurant. We look forward to our next visit.

Overall it was a five star experience .We understand there were some staffing issues resulting in a delay in service but this was explained and reflected generously in the bill.It did not detract from the occasion and the situation was dealt with with professionalism.

Excellent, always feels special without being too formal but nicely relaxed. Food and service are always great but just restrain from any price increases
