Square Meal Review of The Carpenter's Arms ?

Quietly located just across the river Windrush from touristy Burford, this beautifully weathered, 17th-century Cotswold-stone pub is a congenial spot for lucky locals and those in the know. Easy-going staff make everyone welcome, while care and attention to detail is evident in everything from the real ales to the posh country food. Ingredients are important, and it shows; a starter of baby lemon sole with beurre blanc is light and flavoursome, while wild pigeon breast salad with toasted walnuts is a pleasing combination of tastes and textures – although the kitchen can also dish up trencherman helpings of steak and ale pie too. Chocolate tart with a scoop of vanilla ice cream makes a perfect finish, and Sunday roasts also hit the spot. The interior isn’t flashy or too try-hard, keeping it simple with warm woods and exposed stone.
