Having seen the Toon Fat Ladies Sunday lunch review we thought we’d give the place a try. It’s just 5 minutes down the road from us and would have been handy to have as a “go to place” if we didn’t have a reservation.

We tend to go out every Sunday and often return to the best places which earn a place on our “Best Sunday Lunches” list.

Unfortunately, the Blake Arms didn’t make the list on this occasion.

On arrival we asked the you barman/waiter for a table and explained we didn’t have a reservation. He seemed unsure of what to do in this event and although there was only two tables occupied in the whole place.

We were shown to a table and drinks were ordered and served swiftly.

There were no options for starters on the Sunday menu so it was straight to the roasts. I asked the lad if the beef was served pink to which he replied, I don’t know erm I don’t think so. Not the definite response I’d hoped for as I only like it when served pink. He eventually confirmed it wasn’t pink after checking.

The meals arrived. I ordered leg of lamb, the missus had topside of beef. Both of which were well over cooked to the point where there was no moisture in the meat at all.

On the plus side, the presentation was really nice. The veg was served as on a side dish and we we ordered extra cauliflower cheese which looked and tasted good. All of the veg was cooked soft and had no bite left in it, which for me is just cooked a bit more than I like.

When our food was cleared away by a lady waitress, we were asked what we thought of the gravy. The waitress said they had a new chef and when she had tasted it earlier she thought it was horrible. (An unusual thing to say to paying customers)

The restaurant area is really nice and although the staff were a little peculiar in the area of customer service it was the overcooked meat that let it down for me.

The best way I can sum this one up is…. It felt like I was eating the meat veg from a Sunday Lunch made by my Nana, but presented on the plate by a chef.

Keep the meat moist and some crunch/bite in the veg and you’re onto a winner

I used to go in this pub to support it as it seemed quiet and helping local businesses is usually worthwhile. The atmosphere is a bit clannish with extra attention given to the locals and minimum interaction with relative strangers. The place looks clean and organised but up close that illusion does not last long. What is most worrying though is the gradual slip from 4 stars to 2 stars, based on the local authority hygiene inspections. With the inactivity of pubs yes demoralising for owners and staff but also a chance to sort out hygiene discrepancies, food handling and preparation refresher studies. I won't be eating here anymore or even going in for a drink as that rating is unacceptable.

Great food, ale and service. Every time we come this way, we call in on our way back. Can’t believe the prices given the quality of the food. Nice to see that they source their food locally. Friendly staff and it’s great that this extends to our four-legged family member! We massively rate this place!

Practically our second home, this is a true 'local' - welcoming doggies, kids, old and young. The food is cooked fresh and is lovely, there is bar bait if you want something lighter, or full meals. The range of draught beers and lagers is also really good. The bar staff are always friendly and there is always a water bowl and doggy biscuits available for four legged friends. Sunday lunches are generous portions too! We definitely recommend this great little pub.

We have been to this pub a few times and had just acceptable food. However the last time we
went the potatoes were over salty and the meal swimming in gravy. My friends meal had small frozen chips overdone. Management were most unhelpful, this is an experience we would not repeat.
