|This excellent pub has recently fought off an attempt to turn it into a house. Of course this might only be a temporary reprieve as other examples have shown. So go now while you still can|

|Blackthorn describes the pub well below. Evening food is now on and overheard the (very friendly) landlord saying lunches were starting soon. Hidden away in an area bereft of pubs. Very nice in the large patio on a sunny evening. Only Doom Bar and Butcombe, sampled the latter which was as good as it can get. Worth supporting. |

|This is a little out the way being at the top of a long hill, but itís a pleasant enough place. Unusually the pub is nestled in the middle of a rank of terraced houses, and with plenty of seating out in the large front beer garden they must have tolerant neighbours. This is attractively illuminated with a number of lights. |
Formerly it had a reputation as a bit of a gastro-pub, but itís now under new ownership and currently offers no food at all other than a couple of filled rolls on the bar, although the friendly barman explained that they were planning on introducing some in the next couple of weeks Ė ďbut it wonít be Lamb in Aspec at £25Ē he said, presumably in reference to the type of food offered previously.
Inside itís reasonably small, and has rather a wine bar like feel rather than your traditional pub with itís reclaimed wooden boards, cream and grey paintwork, pictures and mirrors.
Beers on tap were Butcombe and Doom Bar. The solitary cider was Stowford Press.

|A very civilised little pub, quite upmarket, gastro.|
Beer good, food excellent, pleasant garden out front.
Worth a visit, tho it's well out of the way, so a destination pub rather than as part of a pub crawl.

|Slightly off the beaten track, essentially a house converted to a pub, The Richmond Arms is rapidly gaining a reputation for its excellent food. I don't normally have much time for your gastro type pub but the Richmond retains enough of the character of a pub to make it work. The staff are always very friendly and know what they're doing. The food's superb, the menus are imaginative and drawn up every week, the food is lovingly prepared and expertly cooked. Great place to take friends for a meal and the Sunday lunch is up there with the best I've had. The real ale is decent and well kept but I can never seem to resist the draft San Miguel long enough to try it properly.|
Not cheap but worth it. It's fair to say it's more of an eating than a drinking pub though.
