Blackthorn _ left this review about Carpenters Arms

An attractive country pub converted from a row of small minor's cottages. It's a little out the way, you're not likely to stumble across it by accident, but it's only a two minute drive from the main A37, so it's easy enough to get to. There's a small courtyard garden at the side, and a covered smoking area at the front.

It's a good sized pub with attractive exposed stonework walls and an unusual tartan carpet throughout. It's an interesting layout with a long bar in front of you as soon as you walk in, several different areas including a large restaurant area off to the right. There's a small snug to the left of the bar, although the cosiness of this was somewhat ruined by the large plasma showing a TV talent show. The young team of bar staff and waitresses were friendly and efficient, although one of them clearly didn't know her ciders too well – I heard her describing Stowford Press to one punter as “the local one”. Errr, no, it’s from Hereford. The bar area was fairly quiet on a recent Saturday evening, with the majority of punters being there to eat – the restaurant was quite busy even from 7:00.

The food offering was definitely more restaurant like than pub like, both in the choice of dishes offered and the price – most of the mains were around the £14 mark. That said though, you get what you pay for and we both thoroughly enjoyed what we had.

Beers on this occasion were Otter Ale, Doom Bar and Butcombe. Ciders were the (local) Blackthorn and Stowford Press.

The only letdown was the gent’s loos which absolutely stank. That may of just been due to whoever was in there previously of course, I’m not sure if it’s always the case. But it was very unpleasant. There were some interesting picture’s on the wall though which was some small compensation. Other than that, this is a cosy country pub and well worth checking out.
