Quinno _ left this review about The Carpenters Arms

An unpretentious country pub owned by Arkells, next door to Sandham Memorial Chapel which has some of Stanley Spencer’s paintings within. Three Arkells ales on, Kingsdown, Wilts Gold and 3B. My Kingsdown was in good form. The main room holds the bar, is decorated with old workman’s tools (presumably all carpentry-related…) and has board games available. Food advertised on the chalkboard and the pub was pretty busy for a wet Friday lunchtime with informal diners so they must be doing something right. To the rear is a conservatory with a more formal dining-room holding great views over Watership Down. From here, exit to the well-tended beer garden. Accommodation available in a converted cottage that adjoins. Walkers, children and dogs are welcomed. The Carpenters felt like quite a homely place and I could have easily settled in for session. Has previous GBG form and I’d be keen to take it again if this is the usual standard. For grub and a pint it knocks spots off Marco Pierre-White’s place up the road.

The pub is under new management and is definitely worth a visit. Good food, warm welcome and a great atmosphere. Please ignore any reviews before November 2011!
