Pub Layout

This site is a small, cosy pub that consists of one long main bar area with a split trade area for social drinking and pub games.  The Carpenters Arms underwent a sympathetic refurbishment 3 or 4 years ago that gave the pub a new lease of life making this the quality wet led site it is.  Externally there is a designated smoking area, and a recent development means we have potentially the best garden in the town.

The Carpenters Arms has a friendly ‘locals’ atmosphere and serves a great range of beers including local and specialised ales available through SIBA.  There is a great focus on product range to ensure all locals are catered for. The pub also hosts mid-week quiz nights, Pool & darts teams as well as live artists at the weekends.  There is an opportunity to introduce a back bar food offer with a basic menu.

Private Accommodation

The private accommodation is to a high standard and consists of two good sized bedrooms, a fully fitted kitchen, lounge and family sized bathroom. Outside there is a rooftop terrace.
