We ate here twice in the last week, a party of 12 with children and adults, all catered for beautifully by the team at the Blacksmiths Arms. Food was excellent, service charming and friendly. Thoroughly recommended if you want a cosy atmosphere, beautiful local produce and a warm welcome.

This former blacksmith's forge is a lovely old building that has been run as a local pub for quite a long time. The current owner has made it a bit more "upscale". The prices range from about £5 for good sandwiches with homemade chips to around £28 for steaks. The beef is also provided by the owner's farm and is... More

Ate here twice during a weekend break in Westow. Fillet steak is of such good quality and perfectly cooked you'd be hard pushed to beat it anywhere. The Sunday Lunch was of an equal standard. Drinks were good, staff friendly and efficient. Dog and family friendly. All at a price but, well worth it. Definitely give it a visit if... More

Had a family lunch here and I opted for the Ploughman's which was perfectly nice. My dining companion had Steak and Ale Pie which also I was informed was very pleasant. Would return, the food was what it was, nice staff and nice surroundings.

Had a great meal. Friendly service and efficient. The beef is really good and was a larger than normal portion which was really tasty. Enjoyed the meal and will visit again.

My wife and I have eaten here by ourselves or with family and friends on several occasions without a single disappointment from anyone! The entire staff are always very friendly and the service is excellent. There is a good varied menu and it is not over expensive, wines and beers are also excellent. Whatever we have chosen from the menu,... More

The Blacksmiths can totally be relied on for home produced beef.We have eaten in the evenings , as we did very recently, and have also taken our family of 12 for lunch on a number of occasions including children from 2 to 10 years old. The welcome is always warm and the children felt welcome too which is not the... More

We had planned a birthday drive out into the Yorkshire Wolds. I picked the Blacksmiths Arms at random. Booked a table for four. So glad I did, it was Sunday lunchtime and when we arrived a little early the place was full. We had very little time to wait for our order to be taken, and the food was soon... More
