What Our Customers Say
We went out one sunday afternoon for a drive with my girlfriend and got lost and stumbled across the carpenters arms by chance and it was to our benefit as the choice of vegetarian meals was fabolous. as my girlfriend is vegetarian it is hard to find a restaurant that doesnt only do nut cutlet there was eight different choices on display. she had stacked aubergine with vegetable and potatoes and i had the fish pie and all we can both say is that we will be getting lost again and stumbling across this pub/restaurant again.
I choose The Carpenters Arms because of their reputation for having an extensive vegetarian/ vegan menu :-) i wasn't disappointed :-) on arriving we were shown to our reserved table next to a gorgeous log fire :-) the drinks were excellent and there was a good variety :-) there is a massive range of vegetarian meals on offer and there was 3 brilliant vegan options on the menu too :-) (the soup was vegan friendly too) the owner was super kind and told us if we wanted to come back to ring him in advance & he could create more vegan options :-) deserts too :-) :-) :-) my parents both had meat dishes and said the food was fantastic :-) :-) its a lovely place to have a meal and drink, very relaxing & all great value for money too :-) when the owner found out it was my birthday he gave me a free drink :-D thank you so much kevin if your reading this! :-) :-) and thank for for being so accommodating :-) :-) we are all looking forward to visiting you again soon :-) :-) :-) :-)
This pub is a haven. Went for a mid week evening meal " off the cuff" type of visit. The bar/lounge areas were welcoming with open fires and locals filling the pub with cheer, children included. (well behaved ones too) The food was almost all home made and was delicious. The prices were very good, along with the wine list. The Landlord was very friendly and couldnt do enough to ensure the evening went well for us, The cat (called Pubcat) was cute and loved it by the fire too, a fitting tribute. A must for families and couples alike. superb.
This was our third trip to England, and our first venture outside of London. We were driving down the M5 and got bored so we just pulled off and tried to get lost on some back roads. We ended up here by sheer accident. When we saw the pub we were frankly not expecting much, but decided to choke down some food as we didn't know when we would find another place. The owner of the pub is a great, friendly sort and we learned much about the town and its history from him. For lunch I got the Yorkshire pudding, and it was one of the most fantastic things I had ever had! Then I got the rhubarb crumble for dessert. This was simply the most fantastic dessert I have ever had! Next time I am in London, I may just drive out to Miserden for the lunch!! My recomendation is if you are anywhere close by, do not miss this place!
We, and friends, were staying in the Cotswolds and found this pub on the 'net. We booked a meal using our "Times card" for a Sunday evening, and the landlord was most welcoming. The beer was great and we sat outside whilst our food was being prepared and enjoyed views of the village. The food was good and the service excellent. Sadly the treacle tart had all gone but fortunately for us a fresh bread and butter pudding had just been made which met with approval from all concerned. After our meal we "took a turn" around the village which rounded off a perfect evening.
I came across this ountry pub when walking in the area. i was muddy and tired but was made to feel very welcome. They even welcomed my dog - not inside the restaurant but i could tie her outside where there were bowls of water and people to make a fuss of her. The food was first rate, the staff very efficient and prices were good comparable to other places in the area. If i come this way again i will definately plan my walking around this pub, perhaps in the autumn when the huge log fire is lit!
