My partner and I visited Blockley on the 9th March. Whilst staying at the local hotel we decided to visit the local pub for an evening meal and a couple of drinks. We were welcomed by a young charming and friendly bar man who made very polite conversation and made us feel at ease. He continued to be very attentive... More

We popped into the western arms for a Saturday lunch. We both had the rib eye steak. We ordered fresh vegetables which were not on the menu. The steak and the veg were excellent. The service was friendly and going off menu was no issue. We will be back.

We spent an evening here on Wednesday 8 March. My wife had been ill and the Waiter/Barman was very kind in attempting to adapt a meal that my wife could enjoy. Food was lovely. I particularly enjoyed the warm chocolate fudge cake (which was the best I'd ever had) and must commend the young Barman who waited upon us and... More

Found this place on TripAdvisor and we visited last night as a party of 9, we were staying locally in the area for a family get together. It happened to be the 1 year celebration of the landlord and landlady so the place was heaving. Very impressed from the start, the pub side was busy and friendly, nice beers, lovely... More

Had a group meal for 8 at this pub recently and absolutely loved it. Lovely food, generous portions sizes and very friendly staff. No complaints whatsoever. The waiter was very attentive and remembered everything we asked for. Would definitely recommend the mussels!

We visited on a Monday night, restricted menu but still a good choice. The food was excellent, the service excellent and the landlord made us really welcome. Loved the restaurant decor which was modern, bright, clean and very tasteful. The pub sold hooky ales which again we would highly recommend trying, also excellent choice of gin and mixers.

We visited this popular pub on two occasions and can recommend both the food and the beer. The staff were also very efficient and the pub is dog friendly. We enquired about dinner (accompanied by the dog if possible) and a table in the main bar area (instead of the restaurant) was reserved for us without any fuss, which was... More
