It is rare these days to find a place that works equally as well as a place to go and have few drinks with your mates as it does a place to eat, but the heaving bar and the less crowded but no less popular restaurant argues that the Eliot Arms has done just that. The menu is comprised of everything that you might expect from a solid country pub, plus a few things you might not. You can turn up and eat in the bar or you can book and eat in the restaurant, which is what we did. At first we thought we might be in for a bit of a wait, given that there was only one waitress serving, but all credit to her and the crew in the kitchen everything arrived promptly. The food was the way I like it – free from drizzling and all that novella cuisine cobblers. It was hot, tasty and plentiful. One starter and two mains along with a beer each came in at around £40. Excellent.

Wow what can I say!!

Booked here at short notice for me and my wife, and neither of us were disappointed. Village pub atmosphere and high quality food and service.
We ordered our drinks at the bar, made our way to our reserved seating where the friendly waitress took our order from the wide selection on offer. We had a short wait while our food was prepared and cooked.
As it was a Sunday I ordered the roast turkey and my wife ordered the roast beef.
The food came with all the trimmings and it was fantastic.
We were not disappointed with the portions and defiantly value for money.

If like us you dream of staying in a proper pub in a rural village setting then this is it. Full of all of the artefacts that should be in a quaint old English pub, chatty locals, old books, clocks, brass cannon shell cases, copper ware, lots of beams, little snugs and just lovely. Our bedroom was very comfortable and full of character, the food was really good, (we had dinner and an awesome full English breakfast) and the staff were very welcoming and friendly. Will definitely be revisiting, only sad we're not locals ourselves!

Recommended by someone who knows a good pub.....lively, bustling on first visit, service was very good and friendly. Great menu choice, includes an extensive specials board. Prices were perhaps ' a little expensive '. Plenty of different rooms to eat in, booking seemed to be necessary. Many clocks and artifacts adorn each area of the pub. Reasonable choice of draft ales. Second visit was somewhat different, service was ok, but the pub was not busy !!! Food , apart from lamb chops, which were very poor, was very nice. Overall, well worth the visits and would recommend.

Had a Sunday evening in here for a spot of dinner as was staying locally. Really glad we did.
Good, wholesome, tasty homemade food. The quiche was very tasty.

The salad was a mish mash of fresh peppers, pasta, potato salad and apple. Not sure they all worked together, specifically the pasta, but tasty none the less.
