We’re a family business. Chris does the Landlord thing (and plays about infusing spirits and making charcuterie and stuff), Paula heads up the kitchen brigade with the help of son Dan, while daughter Becki holds the whole thing together with smiles and laughter and some pretty exceptional management skills….
Great food is the lynchpin of our business, so we have to have some rules. If it’s fish, it’s got to be the freshest fish. If it’s meat, it’s got to be the best meat from the best butcher, and if Paula decides to pop a burger on the menu…it’ll be the most glorious burger ever! We smoke our own meats and cure our own charcuterie.
More about our food
Mostly it’s lovely things but you can read the good, the bad and the really ugly about us on TripAdvisor. It seems the running theme when anything’s not quite right is down to me (Chris) being grumpy. I’m not. I’M NOT!
If it horrifies you to learn that some pub chains have frozen fish delivered ‘ready battered’; that meats and main courses arrive in their kitchens as ‘boil-in-the-bag’ and that one chain even buys in ‘frozen poached eggs’…
Chris here. I like drink, and I do like a drink, so I’ll write this bit. I’ve run a few pubs but I’ve never been happier than over the past few years as Landlord of The Butlers Arms, because I believe we’ve created something special. We’ve got character, quality and conviviality…
We love our suppliers…absolutely love them. We’ve worked together for years and know we can rely on them to deliver the very best meat, freshest fish, fruit and veg to Paula’s team in the kitchen and great coffee, beer, wine and other boozy stuff to me in the bar!
We’re always on the lookout for lovely people to work with us. If you’ve read the rest of our website you’ll already have a flavour for what The Butlers Arms is all about.
