Fantastic Sunday lunch
Superb service from Rachel and her team
We’ll be back as soon as we are allowed
Very good experience. The Papermakers must be under new management, as this was a much better experience than last time a couple of years back. Very helpful and pleasant staff, lovely ambience and food tastefully presented. Very good value for money, I will come again. Thank you.
Really lovely meal, well looked after. The menu was amazing especially enjoyed the blade beef pittanesca and the spiced pumpkin pie dessert
Both of our fish dishes were fabulous. The best food we’ve eaten in a restaurant for a long time . The service was great and friendly as usual !
Amazing food with amazing service. Will definitely be going back
We were warmly greeted by Rachel. From the time we got there the service was fantastic. Given time to look at the menu and time in between courses. Well the food was the best Pub food I’ve had in a long time. Beautifully served . Great value. Will definitely be going back .
Ate outside but service and meal good as ever.....
As always, the service at the papermaker’s arms was fantastic. Very attentive staff who made our experience an enjoyable one. Unfortunately the food wasn’t as good as our previous visits which was quite disappointing, however the service made up for this.
Another excellent meal at this treasure of a place. Very impressed with Covid19 measures, great friendly service and the food was first class. Venison Haunch melted in the mouth and the celeriac mash was a delicious accompaniment. Dessert of pear & hazelnut tart with ginger sauce & marmalade ice cream - heaven. Cant wait to go back.
Really lovely meal. We had Beef Wellington, which was excellent. Lovely warm and friendly pub. The staff were so helpful and attentive. We would thoroughly recommend.
A lovely pub in a beautiful area. The food was delicious, the staff were attentive and lovely and the service was fantastic. We loved it!
Excellent food and good service - much more than a local pub.
A small selection on the menu which is always a sign that it's going to be good. We weren't disappointed. Both meals were superb. Decent wines and ales on off and all competitively priced. Capped off with polite and friendly service.
Excellent meal and very codid safe.
They are doing a really good job of making you have a really good dining experience.
Nice atmosphere, friendly and welcoming staff. Reasonably priced for such good quality food. We now need another excuse to treat ourselves soon. We will be back.
The usual lovely welcome from Rachel and superb food courtesy of Kyle . What better way to spend an evening in our local and long may it continue 🤞
Excellent, could have done with more vegetarian choice on the night that I visited, but that’s not a criticism
Food is fantastic with friendly efficient staff and good beer
I ate here about five years ago - it was good then, but it's even better now. Impressive menu and the cod I ordered was delicious. It hasn't forgotten it's a pub either, so there was a good selection of beers on tap.
WE ALWAYS ENJOY A VISIT TO THE PAPERMAKERS ARMS AND ITS GOOD
TO SEE THEM UP AND RUNNING AGAIN. LOVELY FOOD AND FRIENDLY STAFF.
THE ONLY THING THAT WOULD IMPROVE IT FOR ME WOULD BE THE CHOICE OF
PIPED MUSIC. BACKROUND MUSIC IS FINE BUT SONGS ARE SO
DISTRACTING WHEN YOU ARE TRYING TO HAVE A CONVERSATION.
Fabulous, as always!
Lovely meal, great atmosphere as always. Thank you x
The food is outstanding, good selection of wine and good beer. The staff are very friendly and efficient and Rachael is always very welcoming.
Excellent as always and we felt very safe with distancing and cleaning - definitely recommended for any age.
My wife and I Popped in for a Sunday lunch last weekend, all the corona virus measures were in place and a decent menu was offered, we both opted for the roast, my wife the lamb and me the mixed, both reasonable priced. We both enjoyed our meal very much, I would highly recommend eating here, best to book as it was busy. We also enjoyed our walk around the surrounding areas, great views and lots to see.
We had a great meal. Lovely food and drinks, in an extremely friendly environment. Most ingredients are locally sourced, and chatting to the chef afterwards, he was keen to have our comments. Well done Papermakers team.
Lovely food, friendly staff and good service. Will be visiting again hopefully soon.
Lovely pub in beautiful quiet village. Good menu. Would come back.
Fantastic food as always. Everything is cooked freshly that day by the chefs. Well worth a visit.
1st time back post coivd shut down. Great menu, friendly welcome. A great gastro pub.
Good food in a stylish setting with excellent service.
This was my first visit. The service was very warm friendly and quick. The food was outstanding and the toilet was a venue in itself! Will definitely return.
All the waitresses were so polite and well mannered. Great humour and always quick to take any orders! Thank you
Great food, although very limited choice for vegetarians. Well presented, superbly cooked, very enjoyable!
Great staff and lovely food. Well worth the journey.....
We had a lovely dinner this evening. Gorgeous food & fantastic service.
Really delicious food. The green curry is really delicious. Lovely staff who make you feel really welcome. Fantastic pub.
Our first trip out for a meal and a good experience, very welcoming as always and great service and lovely food!
