We had to request the food to be warmed up and the veg as they were Luke warm. Apart from that the food was delicious

Food took ages to arrive in what was a relatively empty sitting. Presentation was poor compared with pics on the site. Fish was dry, all food was overpriced for its quality. Happy to pay lots of money for food but not happy to pay this for what we got. Best items were hummus and chutney.

Excellent food. Only complaint being the duck didn’t arrive with the advertised blackberries, which it needed to add acidity to the dish and no hint of smokiness in the smoked potatoes. Excellent well priced wine list and attentive service.

There was two vegan mains on offer on the menu... when ordered, I was told both weren’t actually suitable for vegans! So the chef had to make something off menu. Please don’t advertise vegan choices on the menu when this is certainly not the case.

Visited for Sunday lunch. The starters were very nice. For mains we both chose veggie sausages, which were tough and a bit tasteless. The potatoes, veg and gravy were lovely. We've given 3 stars for 'atmosphere' because our table was in a doorway and on the 'run' for everybody walking from the bar area to the restaurant rooms. The service was a bit uncoordinated because there were a few different people taking orders and serving, but the staff were fab.

Tasty food and service was very good other than a long wait for our sweet die to problem in kitchen. Staff kept us informed but delay meant we could not stop for coffee. Will however be happy to recommend to friends and to revisit.

Absolutely great staff at the Blacksmith arms. So glad we found this place. As a vegetarian it was so amazing to see 3 out of the 7 options on a Sunday for main course were vegetarian. Mine and my girlfriends favourite
