The Blacksmiths Arms Inn is some 250 years old and forms part of the Duchy of Lancaster Estate. Since 1979 the Blacksmiths Arms has been sympathetically and expertly restored and upgraded to a high standard. Recently the Blacksmiths Arms hosted royalty when Queen Elizabeth and Price Philips enjoyed a full meal in our restaurant. It is now regarded as one of the areas most charming and popular Inns. The Blacksmiths, one of Britain's few remaining authentic country Inns abounds with character and characters. If you wondered why its called the Blacksmiths Arms, next door is the area's only fully operational Smithy.

A selection of home-made specialities, bar meals, lunches are available every day at both lunch times and evenings. On Sundays the Blacksmiths is the place for Traditional Fare with three courses served in the Dining Room or you can choose how many courses in the Lounge. The Blacksmiths Arms reputation for quality and friendliness has made it the first choice for many when celebrating Weddings, Anniversaries, Receptions and Festive Functions.


The olde worlde atmosphere and character of the two bars is a fine example of times long gone, in fact very little has changed in these rooms in two hundred years - except for the electric light bulb and slight increase in beer prices. On chilly nights, the open fire burns logs from the Duchy forest, sending out the warmth and comfort synonymous with this hostelry. The fine furnishings and traditional furniture are a credit to the Arnall family who have striven and succeeded in preserving this unique and rare example of an English Country Inn.
