There is still time to book your festive stay or Christmas party,

with all the trimmings.


Serving the community for 250 years,

The Carpenters Arms has a long tradition of genuine hospitality. It has re-opened with its historical interiors sympathetically, but spectacularly refreshed. 


The wow factor is our new glass restaurant, which wraps itself around the rear of the pub, filling the colourful, vibrant interiors with light and air. The history of the building is celebrated with exposed beams, warm oaks and open fires. But these traditional finishes are paired with bold modern prints adding shots of colour and texture.


The theme of convivial entertaining continues with our open kitchen which serves food every day.

Complementing the modern interiors is a modern British menu. Dishes change with the seasons using the best produce available. We’ve teamed up with our favourite local suppliers and makers to create vibrant and wholesome flavours in a relaxed setting.

Whether you fancy a quick, tasty bite to eat or a celebratory three course supper, Head Chef, Seb Mansfield and his team pride themselves on their imaginative and varied menus. 


Not just a pub, but a pub with cosy bedrooms. We have four - beautifully decorated, comfortably furnished, ready to make a fabulous evening into a memorable stay.

Many of our rooms have been thoughtfully designed to be pooch perfect, bedding and treats are available for your four legged friend.

Miles of woodland and the village common provide excellent adventures for furry friends. Perfect for snuffling, scampering and then back for a snooze and supper in the bar.​

We have a special menu that caters for our four legged guests. Including home cooked sausages and bottom sniffer beer!

For those who have time to stay a while, our three Good bedrooms are all dog friendly.

To read more about our dog-friendly stays and things to do in and around our area and beyond take a look at our dedicated dog website, Chestmutts.
