The Howard Arms

The Howard Arms Within its thick walls the Howard Arms has all that is expected of a village pub and lots more besides. The traditions of old beamed ceilings, flagstone floors and inglenook log fires have been brought together to meet the needs of discerning people today. Food is of excellent quality at inexpensive prices with interesting and varied menus changing weekly. The cellar is well kept with an interesting range of beers and wines. Complimenting the food and drink are eight delightful bedrooms. Each is en suite, decorated in antique country modern luxury style and enjoys the tranquillity of the setting. Awarded 'Certificate of Excellence 2011'by Trip Advisor and recommended in the Allistair Sawday's, AA Good Pub, Michelin and Good Pub guides.
