We enjoy this as a lovely weekend pub with great food and prices. We always enjoy the steak pie and amazing chips. The gravy is amazing! Lovely cosy atmosphere and traditional classy county pub feel. Never had a bad meal here.

We called here for lunch after a day out, such a friendly and warm welcome awaited us. Lunch is freshly cooked to order, I ordered the mixed grill and there was plenty of it, I didn't eat for the rest of the day.

Excellent pub food and wonderful friendly service. Well worth several visits. Beers are equally good with plenty of variety in the real ales.

Visited for Saturday lunch. My wife had sea bass which she said was excellent and I had the chicken breast which was lovely. Both were imaginatively presented and, although not cheap, were excellent value for money. This is fast becoming our favourite place to eat.

The Mainwaring Arms has been around for years. There is a small bar area, open back room and restaurant booths for food. This makes the atmosphere very nice. There is a good selection of beers and wines. The staff are nice and the menu though...More
