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 Philip 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.
