user reviews of The Bakers Arms, Orleton

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

Has been refurbished properly since my last visit (rather than just spruced up) and has reverted to its former name of the Maidenhead. Maybe 2 pubs in Orleton are too many as it seemed pretty quiet for a Saturday lunchtime. My pint of Hobson's Best was simply superb (as was the price, a mere £3.40!); HPA and Butty Bach were also available as was a guest ale from Swan Brewery. Good to see the Robinsons Flagon still on sale. Comprehensive menu with traditional pub classics as well as slightly more adventurous offerings - I opted for a simple gammon steak which was delicious.

We called here on the way back to Hereford. Found the place a bit soulless. Beer was OK but the service from the guy behind the bar was poor.

Traditional pub layout insomuch as there is a public bar through the door to the right as you walk in and a lounge bar to the left. We chose the former just because the rugby was being shown on a small TV in the corner. Flooring is a mixture of terracotta tile and carpet with traditional tables, leather-effect seating and a woodburner. At the rear of the building at the back of the public bar is a pool table area with laminated wooden floor where half-a-dozen local lads were having a game and chatting amiably with the landlord. Other than them, there were no other customers at 5pm yesterday. The lounge bar seemed to be a mirror image of the public bar except that there is a dining area instead of a pool room. I enjoyed a very good pint of Otter Amber; Hobsons Twisted Spire and Best Bitter also available, cider was Robinsons Flagon. I suppose I might agree that this pub isn't as characterful as the nearby Boot Inn but I certainly wouldn't rule out revisiting.

Now reopened as the Baker's Arms. Extensively refurbished. 2 real ales available when I was there - both Hobsons. Gone rather upmarket with some locals playing pool, which is tucked away from the eating area. Not bad, certainly okay for eating out and taking the family out, but not really a drinking pub or one with any particular character.

Currently closed and boarded up although there is a sign outside stating that it is under new ownership and will be refurbished.
