"We would stay again!"
Staff were extremely welcoming, room very small but adequate for a 1 night stay, bed comfy and very nice bedding, nice wall mounted TV. Surprised at how quite apart from some kind of fan/generator kicking in throughout the night we slept well. Could have done with a couple of extra coat hangers in wardrobe, there were only 2. Generous Tea/coffee facilities Read less
Likes:
The Staffs politness, particulary Greg, he was extremely helpful and pleasant.
Dislikes:
Lack of choice for dessert, although Greg quickly organised Cheese board when I asked if possible. Breakfast fresh and hot and again served with a smile!

"great overnight stay with good value for money"
we checked in at 2pm and our 3 bed room was really nice and spacious. we ate that night in the bar restaurant and my one complaint was the the long wait for food. the adjoining restaurant seemed to take preference over the bar which for paying BB guests seemed unfair. Read less
Likes:
friendly and clean with lovely bedding and towels.
Dislikes:
the wait for food in the bar restaurant on the evening of our stay. we waiting 1hr 20mins for 3 main dishes which i felt was rather long.
Response from The BlackSmiths Arms:
We apologise for the delay with your food order, unfortunatly 1 of our 2 chefs that are normaly on duty, was taken ill earlier that day and the remaining chef managed extremely well in the circumstances.
We certainly do not in any way prioritise food orders, but as all food is cooked fresh to order, then some delay in service cannot be avoided.

Likes:
Bar evening meal good value but associated restaurant very expensive. Barman friendly and helpful
Dislikes:
Old mattresses,furniture in the corridor and outside bedroom window. Lack of break choice. No offer of cereal or fruit juice. Had to ask for second cup of coffee. Breakfast overcooked and dry.
Response from The BlackSmiths Arms:
We would like to apologise for some of the items listed above as we were further updating our rooms.
With regard to our restaurant, Tarrragon, it is certainly not overpriced for "French Fine Dining" with a Chef who has earned 2 Michelin Stars and many other awa rds

Overall rating: 4.1 out of 5
 I was in the area seeing friends and the location was perfect for that. I was only there a couple of days and didn't want to spend too much on accommodation. There was a general store/post office across the road so I could pick up little bits if needed and of course there was a pub on site. I was concerned it may be noisy but it really wasn't.
