Blue Scrumpy left this review about The Bowbridge Arms

The Bowbridge Arms is situated on the edge of town. Similar to its sister pub, the Clothiers Arms, I found it a littls disappointing. Ironically the barmaid that served us on Saturday evening at the Clothiers Arms was working Sunday lunchtime at the Bowbridge Arms. So, they share employees too.

We sat outside on the terrace adjacent to the pub. There is a small children's play area down some steps from here. The terrace itself looks out across the hills, with some splendid views.

St Austell Proper Job is the regular ale. The guest beer was Butcombe Original. I'm not a fan of either.

The Bowbridge Arms has had a chequered history in the recent past, but they seem to have put the all that behind them now. The former British Oak has been restored into quite a convivial environment. One of the original features of the pub, has been retained – the etched windows depicting oak trees, a gentle reminder of the past. Indeed the interior of the pub, strikes a nice balance between modern comfort and character, for example the bare stone interior walls and wood burning stove.
They do good food at The Bowbridge Arms, which is well presented and reasonably priced. At the time of writing, there are four hand pumps, so real ale enthusiasts need not feel neglected.
Well worth a visit.
